Judicial Retirement System


Q. I recently heard from a FERS Article IV judge in the Judicial Retirement System that they do not get matching in the TSP. I know this is true for members of the uniformed services, but I can’t find anything on someone who will retire under the JRS. I’ve searched the TSP website and OPM’s website but keeping hitting dead ends. Do you know of a good source for this information?
A: The TSP website and/or your agency HR office is the place to go for information about TSP participation. Additionally, to the best of my knowledge, all non-military FERS employees receive agency matching contributions under the usual rules.
