Invest in yourself

Thrift Savings Plan contributions magnify retirement returns.

For FERS employees, the TSP is designed to be one of three pillars, in addition to your basic annuity and Social Security benefits, that will support your financial needs in retirement. Agency matching is a powerful financial tool that can dramatically improve the balance of a TSP retirement account, but it only works if you contribute to your account.

The Postal Service will even match some of your contribution. Don’t leave free money on the table. Invest at least 5 percent of your basic pay into your TSP account each payday for a more comfortable retirement in the future.

And that’s smart business!
