Federal employees

  • TSP
    • TSP can be changed at any time through myPay.
    • TSP contribution limits
    • After a change, the effect starts on the next pay period. For example, if we made a change during the last pay period (Dec 10-Dec 23, 2017), the election will be effective on Dec 24, the first pay period for 2018. See News.
    • Unlike regular TSP elections, a Catch-up election is only valid for one year. Therefore, if you want to make Catch-up contributions each year, you must make a new election each year. Also it takes 2 weeks for the change to take effect. The catch-up election limit will be shown on the myPay webpage.
    • TSP calculator
  • TSP follows the payroll calendar. Pay period end on Saturday and the pay day is on next Friday.
  • Lose or use calendar (see itas reports) is not the same as the payroll calendar
  • Federal agents closed. Tier 2 (telework ready) employees still need to work and enter an ad-hoc TW request.
