TSP Investing Strategies: Building Wealth While Working for Uncle Sam, 2nd Edition
W. Lee Radcliffe, author
The Thrift Savings Plan is tax-advantaged individual investing vehicle for U.S. military personnel and federal government employees. TSP participation has grown to almost 6 million with accounts holding over $600 billion in assets in early 2020, making it one of the largest plans in the world. "TSP Investing Strategies: Building Wealth While Working for Uncle Sam" details a variety of buy-and-hold approaches to investing in the TSP based on the participant's risk tolerance. In addition to methodically examining 120 years of investing in stock and bond indexes similar to those in the TSP over rolling 20-, 30-, and 40-year periods, the expanded second edition details dollar-cost averaging, compound growth and the 'rule of 72,' correlation coefficients among the TSP funds, structured approaches to rebalancing funds over time, and approaches to debt management and 529 college savings plans, among many other topics. In addition, a new "Strategy VI," details important and potentially money-saving topics related to insurance, wills and trusts, and online and TSP account security. An extremely accessible, easily understood primer that simply and precisely explains the options and what they mean, "TSP Investing Strategies," second edition, is the go-to book for anyone currently serving in the U.S. military or federal government, and for friends and family of service members as well!
