Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) Participation Webinar
1-Hour CareerTrack Webinar
As a Federal employee or a member of the
uniformed services, you're provided with a number of financial options to help
you fully prepare for retirement. The Thrift Savings Plan is just one avenue for
savings and investments that can help lead you to your retirement goals. But
understanding the criteria for eligibility and contributions can be
overwhelming, and, with such a vast array of options, decision-making can seem
downright scary. Are you confident that you have the knowledge and familiarity
you need to make the best possible decisions regarding your financial future?
A key component to a comfortable and worry-free retirement is financial
security. In order to achieve that goal, it's imperative you have a handle on
your options for investing, that you understand where your money is going, and
that you're setting aside enough money to retire in a way that allows you to
maintain your desired lifestyle. If you're unsure of the financial jargon that
comes with retirement planning or hesitant about making the right decisions,
you’re not alone.
Are you confused about how much to invest, if you can afford it, and how it will
all add up in the end? As a Federal employee, you're eligible to participate in
the Thrift Savings Plan (TSP). This retirement benefit, established within the
Federal Employees Retirement System Act of 1986, provides an option for
increasing retirement income by contributing to a long-term savings and
investment plan. It offers similar types of savings and tax benefits that
employees of private corporations would receive through plans such as a 401k.
But if you’re unable to fully understand how to read, analyze, and interpret all
of the stipulations of the TSP, you might be missing out.
Ask yourself these questions:
- Have you been told about the TSP, but you don't know how to enroll?
- Does your heart start racing when you're given financial projections of
what you should be contributing in order to retire "on time"?
- Would you like to assess whether you're investing enough, but you don't
know where to start?
- Are you nervous because you don't know all of the variables when it comes
to making decisions about your financial future?
- Do you have family members who are relying on you to secure their
retirements, as well?
- Should you roll over your TSP into an IRA — and if so, when should you do
it and what are the advantages?
If you answered "yes" to even one of these questions, this
powerful program is one you can't afford to miss! In just one hour of training
with our FERS/CSRS expert, you'll discover the ins and outs regarding the TSP
and how it can help you face the challenges of retirement planning. You'll learn
about the advantages of agency contributions and whether or not you're eligible
for such benefits. You'll also uncover options for obtaining a TSP loan and
making withdrawals from your account.
