Q. I’m retiring at the end of May 2017 with 25 years of civil service under FERS. I’m considering maximizing my TSP contribution (15 percent equaling $18,000) and TSP-C contribution ($6,000) in 11 pay periods before retirement. What will be the amount of government matching?
A. Your matching will be limited to 5 percent of your pay for each pay period in which you make a contribution.
