Important notice concerning your rights under the TSP

The Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) will transition its recordkeeping services to a new provider, and it’s important that you know how this transition may affect your TSP account. After the transition, you’ll be able to use new features to complete even more transactions efficiently and securely online, and much more. Get the details about the changes coming in June.

During the transition period, your savings will remain invested in the TSP funds you’ve elected. However, to ensure a smooth transition, we’ll suspend account transactions, access to online tools, access to forms, and correspondence for a brief period. These transactions and services include the following:

The transition period begins on May 16, 2022, and ends the first week of June. Suspension dates for each transaction type will vary, so read carefully through the full calendar included on this page. We encourage you to consider whether this transition period will affect your retirement planning, especially if you were planning to request any transactions in the near future.

Important: While your current TSP investments will remain active during this transition period, we’ll need to temporarily suspend investment changes toward the end of the transition period, beginning May 26, 2022. That means you won’t be able to change your investment choices during this brief time. You should review your current investment choices and make sure they still align with your retirement goals. Keep in mind that once you’ve established your retirement goals and a savings strategy that fits your needs, you’ll have the best results if you stick to your plan. Make adjustments to your long-term strategy only after careful consideration.

On this page, you’ll find a full calendar of suspension dates for affected transactions and services. For more information about the changes coming in June, see this summary of changes.
