The Thrift Savings Plan, or TSP, is a savings account for federal employees, both civilians and those in the military. The TSP is administrated by the Federal Retirement Thrift Investment Board. If you have moved, you'll want to update your TSP address as soon as possible, to ensure your statements arrive at the correct location. Only a former federal employee can change the address on his own. Current employees must contact the agency that employs them for assistance.
