TSP is a 401K they match you up to 5%, TSA gives you 4 hours of Annual Leave the first 5 years of service then after you will receive 6 hours of Annual leave per pay period. After 15 years of service you receive 8 hours of annual leave.
Pro: Good healthcare but not as good as some other federal agencies. 2 weeks of paid leave per year Paid sick time Access to a thrift savings plan (essentially like a 401k) with contribution matching. Holidays are paid off you work on the holiday or not if you are full time. Part time employees receive full benefits outside of being paid for holidays they don't work. Con: Using your paid sick time usually leads to disciplinary action unless you register FMLA. Using your vacation days is almost always extremely difficult. Retiring from tsa doesn't meet you a good person like other federal jobs.
