What are some ways for federal employees to reduce their taxes in retirement?
September 12, 2023 11:35 AM
There are two key things federal employees need to understand to invest successfully in the TSP.
What is the Thrift Savings Plan (TSP)?
The Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) is a retirement savings and investment plan for federal employees and members of the military. It is a defined contribution plan, similar to 401(k) style retirement savings plans in the private sector.
Because it is a defined contribution plan, this means that the retirement income you receive from your TSP account is dependent upon how much you (and your agency or service, if you’re eligible to receive your agency match) put into your TSP account during your working years and the earnings accumulated over that time.
What Are the Core TSP Funds?
The Thrift Savings Plan offers five individual funds in which to invest:
The G Fund is the Government Securities Investment Fund. The TSP states that the fund’s objective is to “ensure preservation of capital and generate returns above those of short-term U.S. Treasury securities.”
The F Fund is the Fixed Income Index Investment Fund. It invests in bonds which track the performance of the Bloomberg U.S. Aggregate Bond Index. This index s a broad-based fixed-income index representing intermediate term U.S. investment grade bonds.
The C Fund tracks the performance of the S&P 500 index. This is a stock market index tracking the performance of 500 of the largest companies in the United States and is generally considered a standard for measuring overall stock market performance.
The S Fund is the Small cap stock Index investment fund. It tracks the performance of the Dow Jones U.S. Completion Total Stock Market Index. This index is made up of small and medium sized companies.
The I Fund is the International Stock Index Investment Fund. It tracks the MSCI EAFE (Europe, Australasia, Far East) Index. The I Fund is the international investment option for the TSP as the companies in this index are primarily foreign (non-U.S.) companies. The MSCI EAFE Index is designed to represent the performance of large and mid-cap securities across 21 developed markets, including countries in Europe, Australasia and the Far East, excluding the U.S. and Canada.
What are the TSP L Funds?
The Thrift Savings Plan also offers 10 Lifecycle (L) Funds in which to invest. These funds are a mix of the five core TSP funds (G, F, C, S, and I). They are designed to let you invest your entire portfolio in a single L Fund and get the best expected return for the amount of expected risk that is appropriate for you.
The target allocation of the L Funds changes automatically over time based on your projected retirement age, gradually shifting from more aggressive to more conservative as you approach your projected retirement date. The name of each fund indicates one’s projected retirement date. Once an L Fund reaches its target date, it is automatically rolled into the L Income Fund. For example, in 2055, the L 2055 Fund will be rolled into the L Income Fund.
TSPDataCenter.com is the one-stop resource for federal employees and federal retirees to find current and historical Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) share prices and rate data for performance of each of the core TSP funds (G Fund, F Fund, C Fund, S Fund I Fund) as well as the Lifecycle (L) Funds. Daily, monthly and annual TSP performance, rates of return, and daily TSP share prices are among the data provided, and we also offer a free email newsletter with a weekly update on the TSP funds’ performance.
