Deadline Looms for TSP Required Update

Important Notice from the Defense Finance and Accounting Service -

Active duty Roth TSP participants have until Saturday midnight to get updated contribution elections submitted via myPay or risk interrupting their monthly additions to their Roth TSP account. The DFAS pay system has been updated to allow "percentage of pay" elections required by the Federal Retirement Thrift Investment Board.

Anyone who does not submit elections based on percentages of their basic, special, incentive or bonus payments between Jan. 1 and 31 will not have deductions processed from their paychecks and contributions made to their Roth TSP account at the end of the month.

Visit the myPay website to update your account.
