    Hey guys I havent posted in a while. I just started using mint.com. I have my credit card, checking, savings, and an IRA through my bank put in the program. I see some people put their TSP accounts into the program also. Just curious whats the point of this? Is it just so you can see all your accounts in one nifty program? How does TSP feel about putting your username and password into a third party program? I remember there was a third party TSP app for iPhone and the government sent out a warning not to use it because it was not endorsed by the government. ps: I have two tsp accounts. One for civil service and one for military reserves. If I was to put in my information I wonder if it would display corectly.

    Been using Mint for almost 4 years now and love it. I don't know about the two TSP accounts though, but I would assume it would show both.

    Mint has its occasional issues, but its free... some people get all bent out of shape when it stops updating (usually when a bank, etc changes they layout of they website), but I guess they expect perfection for free. BTW, Mint is owned by Intuit of Quickbooks and Turbotax fame.

    I like having everything in one place, but I suppose its really up to how you want to track your finances.

    This is the only mention that TSP officially makes about using mint.com. The mention is at the bottom of the page and it just states that a new stronger password is required to track tsp funds using the service. I guess TSP isnt against using mint.com? I know there was a huge deal a while back when someone came otu with an app that tracked TSP performance and required the username an password.

    TSP.gov would never say not to use 3rd party software to track performance. They are mandated by law to provide you the information, which can be monitored from their site.

    Are you thinking that linking the account from mint.com is illegal? That is not true.

    Im not thinking that its illegal. Im thinking that it would not be recommended. TSP warns participants against free iPhone app from Apple store - The Washington Post Sorry for posting the whole adress to the link but I do not know how to make a hyperlink adress show up as a regular sentence. This is the tsp iPhone app I was talking about. How can TSP say not to use your password and login on this 3rd party software but to use it in mint is ok??

    Yep, anytime you provide login credentials to an app that stores it, you assume the risk. But TSP requires wet signatures on loans/withdrawals. Use wisely. Your risk.

    The reason I include ALL accounts into mint is for trending of net worth over time. So the account balance is all I really need for Mint.

    I find it strange that TSP and every one in the gov would speak out against this iPhone app but then not mention a word about mint.com. You have to provide login information to both 3rd party apps. I mean I guess the risk is low if you have to have a hard signature to withdrawal funds.
