Q. I have been contributing to my traditional Thrift Savings Plan for the past 3½ years and have accumulated about $7,000. With the introduction of Roth TSP, I was wondering if I should stop contributing to my traditional TSP and start a Roth TSP. I plan on being in a higher tax bracket when I retire, and I also have a Roth IRA.
A. If you’re confident that your tax rate will be higher on the contributions later than it is now, you should contribute the Roth TSP first.
