Did you know you can adjust your Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) contributions at any time?

You don’t have to wait for the annual open season benefits enrollment period to make changes to your account with TSP, the retirement savings plan for federal employees.

To view or adjust your TSP contributions, use PostalEASE on LiteBlue. You’ll need your employee identification number and password to log in.

If you’re a Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS) employee and you put 5 percent of your income into your TSP account, the Postal Service will contribute an additional 5 percent.

This means you’ll have twice as much going into your account as you originally contributed.

Your annuity and Social Security alone will not be enough to replace your current income in retirement. Contributing to TSP is considered an important part of your overall retirement planning.

Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) employees can also contribute to TSP, although they are not eligible for Postal Service contributions.

The Financial Wellness LiteBlue page has videos and other resources to help you prepare for retirement. The TSP site also has information.
