Thrift Savings Plan (TSP)

The Thrift Savings Plan (TSP)  External Web Site Disclaimer is a retirement savings and investment plan. While participation is optional, TSP is a critical and essential part of the FERS External Web Site Disclaimer retirement plan that can provide a substantial portion of your retirement income. It’s also a great supplement to the CSRS External Web Site Disclaimer retirement system.

Contributions are by payroll deductions. You may make a contribution election at any time via myPay External Web Site Disclaimer. If you are a new employee and do not have a myPay PIN, you may complete a TSP Election Form (TSP-1) Adobe PDF icon External Web Site Disclaimer and submit it to the Benefits and Payroll Liaison Branch in Building 31, Room B3C23.
