    Once vested, the Thrift Savings Plan is a great federal benefit provided that the employee earns enough to make the largest contribution.

    The Retirement plan has changed dramatically over the past thirty years. The plan itself is not bad, but it is incumbent on the enrollee to maximize their retirement benefits.

    I like it they have their own retirement plan and it will be sure that how much you will be drawing monthly. But in privet they match up to 10 and put it into mutual funds. Your future benefits depends on the fund you chose and how it is growing?

    The matching portion isn't bad - but horrible limited choices

    Like a 401k but with a different twist. just as good you can move your money around and they match the first 5%.
