Checking on TSP stocks


Q: Is there any way for me to see what specific stocks my Thrift Savings Plan is invested in? I can see the general funds, but what about specific companies?

A: You’ll need to check the TSP Fund Fact Sheet for each fund for the description of the index on which the fund is based, and then research that index for a list of its components. For example, the C Fund tracks the performance of the Standard and Poor’s 500 Index, which is a proprietary, weighted collection of 500 stocks. By the way, there is no guarantee that the funds will actually be invested in all of the component stocks of the index.
