  • TSP-3, Designation of Beneficiary

If you have both a civilian and a uniformed services account, you can make a separate beneficiary designation for each account or you can make the same designation for both accounts.

Be aware that the only document the TSP will use to distribute death benefits is Form TSP-3, Designation of Beneficiary. By law, the TSP must pay your properly designated beneficiary, or beneficiaries, under all circumstances.

Any beneficiary forms that you might have on file with your agency or service (including FEGLI, SGLI, etc.) are not valid for the TSP and cannot be used to determine the distribution of your account after your death.

For more detailed information, visit Beneficiaries.
