TSP front loading - is this possible

Post by DBinvest »

Hi all,

I found this video about front loading 401K's.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D9ADVlJ ... eatTheBush

Does this works with TSP? does the way that we get matched does not allow us to implement this method?

Thanks All.

Yes you can front load. Just make sure you leave enough room to contribute 5% for the remainder of the year.

I watched your video. He is talking about front loading the employer match.

I know for a fact DFAS CIV and DFAS Mil will not do this. You can only receive up to 5% gov contribution per pay period.

I do not know for sure if the other federal payroll offices allow it, but I suspect they do not. NFC, GSA, USPS...
