The Thrift Savings Plan

We're always looking for ways to improve the Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) to give you the information, features and services you need to meet your retirement goals. Gathering feedback from participants plays a big role in helping us improve and redefine the TSP participant experience.

Survey Overview

In October 2013, we surveyed a random sample of TSP participants and asked them to "tell us what they think" about the TSP's features and services. We also asked them about their investment strategies and what additional services they'd like to see that would make the TSP an even more valuable source of retirement income.

While the vast majority of participants are satisfied with the TSP as a benefit, fewer reported being satisfied with some of the administrative services. Having that kind of feedback is what helps us identify and prioritize improvements to the TSP that you most want to see.

More than 5,500 civilian and uniformed services participants completed the survey. Thanks to all who took the time to respond! Your feedback will help us improve the TSP to better meet the financial needs and retirement goals of all participants.
