Did the new changes to TSP modify the Life Expectancy (72t) requirements?

I took an early retirement (VER) from the USPS at age 52. Therefore I had to take SEPP payments (Life Expectancy calculation) from TSP according to the IRS code 72t. As of now I am prevented from having full access to my money until age 59 1/2 and can not chose the amount to be withdrawn. Is that still in effect or did the new changes of 9/2019 relieve that requirement?

Unfortunately, the changes that were part of the TSP Modernization Act did not change the rules on substantially equal periodic payments. You will still have to follow 71(t) until you reach 70 1/2.
