One of the guys in a different thread mentioned being curious as to how he compares with others in his same age, rank, years to retirement bracket. Are we behind our counterparts? Are ahead?

I'll admit I too am very curious because for most of my early career I didn't pay attention to TSP too much as I really didn't have much to put in.

And I think we can all start by saying we're hopefully adult enough that we're not looking for a big D contest here, but rather actual comparisons to see where we are for ourselves.

So I'll start....

Age: 41
GS salary level: 14/04 LEO, (15/06 Regular Equivalent)
Current TSP balance: 198,369.11
Number of Years until PLANNED retirement: 9 until eligible, 16 mandatory (dunno when I'll go quite honestly )

I do get the Social Sec kicker at 50 as well as now the eligibility to withdraw from TSP at 50 with no penalty.

Most of my early career was at a much lower GS scale and I didn't put much in at all, and really didn't think too long and hard about it as we were just trying to make it as a young family. My wife and I both now max contribute and hope it will be enough when it's all said and done.

The bankrate chart puts me somewhere around 700k at 52 years old if I can average 7%.

My youngest child will only be a sophomore in HS when I'm 1st eligible, so I don't know what I'll do. I may wait for her to graduate.
