Frequently Asked Questions Retirement

After I retire from the Federal Government, do I have the same options under FERCCA that active employees have?

Retirees have most of the same choices under FERCCA that active employees have. The primary difference is your ability to make up contributions to your TSP account.

Only active employees can make up TSP contributions, and then only through payroll deductions. If you retire, you would not be able to make up contributions to your TSP account.
