RETIREMENT and TSP PLANS

Retirement Plan

New employees with no prior Federal service are covered by the Federal Employees' Retirement System (FERS) three-tier system. Under this system, employees contribute to Social Security and Medicare, a Retirement fund and a Thrift Savings Plan. Its features are "portable" so that employees who leave Federal employment may still qualify for the benefits. Minimum retirement age under FERS is dependent on date of birth, but ranges from age 55 to 57.

Find more information on the Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS) at https://www.opm.gov/retirement-services/fers-information/

401K - Type Thrift Savings Plan (TSP)

The TSP is a retirement savings and investment plan for Federal employees, similar to the same type of savings and tax plan offered under most private corporation 401(k) plans and is one element of the FERS three part retirement system.

The TSP is a defined contribution plan. The retirement income you receive from your TSP account will depend on how much you have contributed to your account during your working life and the earnings on these contributions.  For more information on this, click on https://www.tsp.gov/index.html.

Two of the main features of TSP are "tax savings" and "tax deferred earnings". This means the contributions you make come out of your pay before taxes, and the earnings made on your TSP account are not taxed until you receive the money.

Further features include a choice of investment options, interfund transfers, loans from your own contributions and earnings, in-service withdrawals and portable benefits if you leave Federal service.

GROUP HEALTH and LIFE INSURANCE


Under the Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) program, employees can choose from a number of health insurance plans that vary in costs and benefits. The Federal Employees Group Life Insurance (FEGLI) Program offers term life insurance at reasonable rates via payroll deductions. The Navy pays a percentage of the employee's premiums under both the Federal Health Benefits and Life Insurance programs.
