Trump Signs TSP Modernization Act Into Law

November 17, 2017

President Trump late Friday signed into law the TSP Modernization Act (H.R.3031), making it easier for participants in the federal government’s 401(k)-style retirement program to manage their investments.

The law will allow federal employees and retirees to make multiple age-based withdrawals from their Thrift Savings Plan accounts and remain eligible for partial withdrawals after they leave government. Additionally, those who have left government would be able to make multiple partial post-separation withdrawals.

Those receiving monthly payments would be able to change the amount of their annuity at any time, instead of only once per year. Participants could change the frequency of payments as well.

Seems like this will make it volatile.

How about letting RCAs participate in TSP even without a usps match it would go a long way to help retain good employees.
