I've never be able to change my TSP contributions online as a "Department of the Army Federal Employee". Not through the TSP website nor through MyPay.
Now you can... https://www.abc.army.mil/ go into EBIS link on the right.
You can change your TSP, FEHB, and FEGLI.
Do other agencies now have the same ability?
TSP.gov can't touch your pay, only your contribution!
Binary: It's as easy as 01, 10, 11
Tracker = [40%-C] [60%-S] ::::Real World = [37%-C] [63%-S]
About 50% of the time when I enter in a new contribution % in myPay for it to deduct from my pay check and put into my TSP, it does not go through. If it told me it did not go through, then I could try again, but instead it says it goes through and sends me the confirmation e-mail. When I log in (to myPay) and click on the TSP link, it even tells me the change is pending. But then it just goes away and reverts back to the old percentage. I have had it do this to me 3 times, at least.
Anyone else have this problem or know what could be causing it?
DOE employees use ESS https://mis.doe.gov/ess/ Most agencies have a similar site. Ask your HR office. (assuming it hasn't been outsourced to a shack in the frozen north)
I didn't discover the problems til long after I had received confirmations both changes had taken effect. never seen this happen before this year. something is funky in the whole system if its affecting more than just me. I'm not DOD. We have an inhouse system called Dashboard. anybody know how to chase this at tsp.gov level?
