Important Information on Catch Up
  • The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) elective deferral limits for 2021 resulted in no change from 2020. However, effective January 2021, employees turning age 50 and older will make "one election" to contribute to both TSP and TSP Catch-up. Employees turning age 50 or older can make one election to both TSP and TSP Catchup to meet IRS 2021 limit of $26,000. Employees under age 50 can elect up to the IRS 2021 limit of $19,500. In order to meet the IRS limit, make the one election under TSP Transactions in GRB by dividing the IRS limit by the number of remaining pay periods in the tax year.                                                                                
Eligible Period
  • If you’re a FERS or CSRS employee or a BRS member who began or rejoined federal service after October 1, 2020, your agency or service automatically enrolled you in the TSP, and 5% of your basic salary is deducted from your paycheck every pay period and deposited into the traditional balance of your TSP account1 unless you made a contribution election to stop or change your contributions. If you’re a BRS member who stopped your contributions during the year, you are automatically re-enrolled at 5% of your basic pay on January 1.

    If you’re a FERS or CSRS employee or a BRS member who began or rejoined federal service between August 1, 2010, and September 30, 2020, you were automatically enrolled at 3%.
