  1. Okay you have peaked my interest. I was told by my a colleague who retired with 650k to look up TSP Pilot. I have been in the L 2030 fund for 8 years and it’s about 130k so I decided to take his advice and found your page instead. I just subscribed to your mailing list and really feel like I want to take a more active approach to my TSP. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Troy

    1. Just keep reading – both here and anywhere else you find information which makes sense to you. The most important factor for you is going to be time – there aren’t going to be a lot of 38% years and most of your gains are going to come from compounding 7-10% per year for a long time to come.

  2. I’m brand new to the TSP and would like to jump in feet first. I recently retired from 22 years of service in the Marine Corps and now I’m a FED employee. I max out my contribution every month. What is the best way to go about setting myself up for future success

    1. Sounds like you are doing it. Maxing out contributions to tax advantaged accounts + time is the best formula. If you are investing more outside the Thrift Savings Plan, definitely google “back door Roth” – that’s a great way to get another $5500 a year into a tax advantaged account.

  3. You recommended a book this month for those who have a basic knowledge of financial markets and investing. Do you have a recommendation for someone to read which provides a good overview for someone who wants to understand the basics?

    Thanks, Jim

  4. A few months ago I transferred everything into the G Fund to sit tight and “be safe.” There seems to be a bit of stable confidence again in the market,…… what allocations would be best in converting back into the C, S, and I funds? Would “buying back in” when stocks etc are high be a good or “risky” move?

  5. I founded and manage a TSP-focused group on Facebook a few years ago. A few of the members of my group regularly post links to your updates in the group. I always enjoy reading what you have to say – especially knowing that, like myself, you are a fundamentalist. You regularly focus on a lot of the same things I focus on myself, but you also add in interesting details that differ a bit from what I post about in my group. Those additional details always lead to me thoroughly enjoying reading everything you have to say whenever members of my group post that you’ve updated your blog. Thanks for all you do, and I just subscribed to your newsletter myself just in case my members forget to remind us all. 🙂

  6. I am brand new to TSP and your posts have been extremely helpful in gaining a basic understanding of TSP investment strategies. I am very interested in subscribing to your page but I am not receiving an email when I try to subscribe. Any tips as to how I can sign up to receive these emails? 🙂

  7. Do you recommend any articles or books that explain how TSP works. 2018 was a bad year for me and I want to be proactive.
