Frequently Asked Questions Retirement

I'm eligible for relief under FERCCA and one of my options will be to choose FERS coverage. Will I be able to make makeup contributions to the TSP in a lump sum?

No. Makeup contributions may only be made by payroll deductions from basic pay. Contributions by check, money order, cash, or other forms of payment directly from the participant to the TSP, or from the participant to the employing agency for deposit to the TSP, are not permitted.
