TSP Improves Security Measures

RANDOLPH AIR FORCE BASE, Texas  -- The Thrift Savings Plan will begin using account numbers to improve individual account holder security effective in October.

TSP officials will mail new account numbers to participants in September replacing the use of Social Security numbers as the primary means to identify current civilian and active duty military participants.

Account holders will use their account number and TSP Web password or ThriftLine personal identification number to log into the Account Access section of the TSP Web site or the ThriftLine.

"To prepare for this change, all account holders should make sure the TSP has your correct mailing address," said Janet Thomas, human resource specialist at the Air Force Personnel Center here.

Air Force civilians and active duty military members can update their address via the Defense Finance and Accounting Service myPay Web application. Address changes submitted via myPay automatically flow to the TSP and update your TSP record. (Only those participants retired or separated from service can submit address changes directly to TSP.)

After logging into myPay, click on "Correspondence Address." Enter your correct address and save the changes. If you are unable to access myPay, submit your address change through your payroll office customer service representative at your base.

TSP officials sent a letter to all participants in August advising of this change.
