TSP new website and log in

Post by Scarfinger »

I was able to set up my account today. I did not try moving any money. I did change my paycheck allocation without any problems. It looks to me like our fees have went up some:

Total expense ratio (Net admin + Investment)
0.043% 0.058% 0.043% 0.059% 0.053%

I was thinking the funds were a little cheaper than this, more around the 0.025%, but I could be wrong.

Looks like it will take some getting used to the site. Good luck everyone.

I managed to get a new login thru my desktop with not too much frustration. Once i got in all i could figure out was my balance which i know is all in G but i couldnt see anywhere that it was G. I gave up trying to get the same simple data we used to get from our standard first landing page from first logging in. Not liking it so far.

I went through the login process and re-balanced my current 25% stock and 75% G allocation. I don't have much interest in the mutual fund window so I did not try to sign up for that. The update seems successful so far IMHO. I am plesantly suprised that the new TSP site indicates I am up 0.21% YTD. When will the TSP center data be updated so we can make a comparison?

I'm assuming that you're being sarcastic. Take a look at the date range for that YTD. Hint: it's not a true YTD, more like a "since we've had your account on this site" range.

Took another look and you are correct, Aitrus. I did not realize that it is the gain since 5/31/2022. I'm sure it will all get ironed out. Still not being sarcastic. I may be a little naive.

I emailed TSP to ask how they take out the fees. This is their answer:

Good afternoon, Thank you for contacting the ThriftLine. I will be happy to assist you with your inquiry.Fees and expenses are assesed daily, However they are taken out monthly.As always if you shoulf have any other questions or concerns please feel free to reply to this email, utilze our live chat option or call the ThriftLine at 1-877-968-3778.ThriftLine Service Center

Do does this mean that if they take out 59 cents on every $1000 then if I had $300k I'd be paying $5310 a month? That can't be. I'd have no money left after a few years. There answer is awful. I hate this new Contractor. I'll be calling them tomorrow but does anyone understand their fees?

Has anyone tried moving money back into the TSP recently. From a qualified IRA?

Good explanation of the high fees. One reason I will never use them.

I hope that's not the case. I think the whole system is a joke, but at the same time, I think it's needed (but in a better manner). Nonetheless, this article from FNN is self-created (especially their "non-scientific poll") and so I won't hold my breath until someone from the "guvmint" says something about this system. Having said that, I still hope this system doesn't leave any time soon. I need access to my leveraged funds. :D
