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 Contributions are made from pre-tax dollars and both investments and earnings are tax deferred until withdrawn.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.

401k match, even at the lowest level. It is definitely worth it to put in.
