Hi to all,

Another newbie here. Been lurking for about a year. A lot of good info and knowledgeable folks on the board.

Me? Hired by Reagan during the defense build up in the mid '80s. About a dozen years to go til MRA.

I've become bery disheartened with TSP. IFT limitations, noon deadlines, and all. Been maxing out TSP the last few years but I'm seriously considering a change in course. Fund TSP to get the matching and lay the rest aside in Roths and other places.

CREDO? Simple. Live within one's means.

Thanks for havin' me,
T'horse

Welcome T'horse! That seems to be the trend - get the matching TSP and move the rest elsewhere.
