Q. Can a federal employee put the maximum contribution into TSP and still receive the complete 5 percent government match on top of that? What if the federal employee is 50 years old?
Also, if the employee puts the maximum catch-up amount along with the maximum TSP amount, will the employee still receive the complete 5 percent government match?
A. TSP agency contributions, including matching, are in addition to your contributions. They do not count against the annual employee deferral limit.
