Hello Fellows TSPers (if thats what we call ourselves)

Im excited to join this board - I have been reading posts a few days and very impressed with the level of professionality and the civil attitude here (even in the Politics threads!)

TSP member since 1998, start out about 60-40 leaning to the "C" which earned me a nice base fairly quick. By shear dumb luck I parked 100% in the Garage early 2000, avoiding the Great Bear of 2000. Stayed a gov employee long enough to be vested & then in non-duty nearly 4 years.

Returned to duty about 2 years ago but didnt even think about my TSP until recently which has been doing little besides gaining G fund interest
and the one-per AAC. I found I had to figure out how to get back into Account Access - I just had the old PIN but didnt know my Acc # so I requested it be sent to me.

Anyway... on a Google search to get to TSP site I noticed the link to this forum. Checking out the action here, seeing the returns different posters are getting has gotten me stoked to put TSP to work for me so I am glad I found the site. I have increased my allocations to get all the "free" money and planning my first IFT in over 9 years.

I was a late starter in Fed employment, retirement is not that far away so I expect to move rather aggressively rather than the low risk of my first 10 years in TSP. Now I need to get those first ten posts...;)
