Smart TSP Strategies to Build a Strong Financial Future

Date: February 27, 2020
Time: 2 p.m. ET
Cost: $39.95 
(Includes one year of NARFE membership. Webinars are FREE to members.)

Saving for retirement is a “must do.” For Feds under FERS, the Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) is a key component of a three-part package. With an up-to-5% employer match, a short vesting period, better-than-average performance, a wide range of investment options, and the recent rollout of more flexible withdrawal options, participating in the TSP should be an easy decision… but making the most of it can be complicated. 

With new rules and options now in place, now is the time for both novice and savvy TSP holders -- or holdouts -- to brush up on TSP knowledge and review their saving strategies. 

Join NARFE Magazine’s “Managing Money” columnist, Mark Keen, CFP, on February 27 at 2 p.m. EST for a one-hour webinar dedicated to exploring the value and possibilities of investing in the TSP.

You Will Learn:
• How to balance risk and reward with available options
• Is a traditional TSP better than a Roth TSP?
• How to avoid taxes and penalties
• When CAN you access your money?
• And more!

Mark Keen, CFP is a financial planner with years of experience helping Feds prepare for retirement. As the expert behind NARFE Magazine's "Managing Money" column, Mark provides practical and targeted saving strategies for the federal community.
