Build up your retirement nest egg through the Thrift Savings Plan. It's the Government version of the private sector's 401(k) Plan. Contributions are made from pre-tax dollars and both investments and earnings are tax deferred until withdrawn. The plan offers five investment funds to choose from, and you can transfer money from other eligible retirement savings plans into your Thrift Savings Plan account. The Government automatically contributes 1 percent of your salary with additional matching contributions up to a total of 5 percent.
TSP is the best plan with a 3% match
Good plan, especially coupled with the pension
They do match what you put in
One of the best 401K plans in the industry
I found the TSP to be a very good plan to select your level of retirement savings, stocks, bonds and mutual funds.
Chose an index to invest in. Very flexible with rapid changes. Very low management fee. (Run by other government employees.)
pretty good. ok match from company
Thrift Savings Plan - matched contributions to a certain amount/percentage - comparable to private sector 401K Plans
Good federal plan and advice
