About the Roth v regular TSP withdrawals. You will get the same percentage in withdrawals as you have in TSP Roth or regular. I would be willing to bet you cannot take back the Roth contributions or convert them to regular contributions. Yeah, I agree too late in the career/life for Roth to make any sense.
Workload demands? Why it sounds as if you are in my situation. Only way to change the TSP contribution is from .gov domain. So at work. NEVER charge any time to admin stuff. If you stay late to do it some manager pops in the door to remind you there is no OT and you must leave for security reasons.
30-50 e-mails a day, a lot about new federal programs to show “they” care, many about long stalled projects you are waiting on the old “what do I tell my people to charge it to?” and the work order needs to come from the manager wanting the update. Some about brush fires needing attention. You are expected to work through lunch so don’t try that. Lunch time is when the managers show up at the door after they went to a trendy place for lunch early.
Never have understood how some TSPTalk contributors post so much during what I think may be their normal work day. I must be doing something wrong.
Alevin, just take the time to double check anything you do on your employee website. No matter who is standing there or how many “urgent” e-mails you have. Hard to do I know. Get rid of that “can do, get it done” attitude and take a lesson from the managers demanding status after six months of not replying to requests from them. It apparently doesn’t matter and is probably time for their review which is why they are asking. 15s will continue to get the bonuses, 14s will continue to politic to be 15s, 14s will tell 12s to make it so and tell the trench people to shut up and do it. 13s are somewhat invisible in my structure. They are there but make no decisions. Trench people are usually not brave enough to tell the 12s we can’t do it if we don’t know what to charge it to. 12s usually tell the workers to “find something to charge it to” All perfectly legal of course. I suppose. Who gets investigated for improper charging? Guess?
OK off soap box. Glad it is almost over.
I think the Roth contributions are a done deal. Congrats on being able to contribute the max catch up.
Thanks for all your posts over the years. No one really gives a rodent’s rump about what happened to you or someone you knew. Keep on posting it. No one really gives a rr about anything I post. I continue to believe the TSPTalk family aspect does care but only if it applies to them. The TSPTalk family aspect is important to me. Yeah, I know this is a site to make investors millionaires.
