Department of Defense civilian employees who want to maximize their Thrift Savings Plan contributions this year should review their most recent LES to make sure they are on track to do so.
The last opportunity to make changes to 2013 TSP deductions is during the pay period of Nov. 17-30. Changes made during this pay period will be effective on Dec. 1 and will be reflected on the LES for pay date Dec. 26.
The first opportunity to make elections for both regular and TSP catch-up contributions for calendar year 2014 is the pay period 1 through Dec. 14. Changes made during this pay period will be effective on Dec. 15 and will be reflected on the LES for pay date of Jan. 9, 2014.
Once information is available regarding maximum contribution limits for 2014, that information will be posted on the Army Benefit Center-Civilian website here.
