October 7, 2013 -- This week on "For Your Benefit", Greg Long, executive director of the Federal Retirement Thrift Investment Board, and Kim Weaver, the TSP's director of External Affairs, join hosts Bob Leins and Tammy Flanagan, to discuss the current trends and economic impacts on the TSP.

Topics will include:

  • How have the furlough days affected participant's TSP accounts?
  • How does the TSP keeps the administrative expenses so low?
  • Has the 3-year pay freeze had any correlation with TSP Participation?
  • We have seen some of the various YouTube videos available regarding the TSP, what other new ways are you trying to reach out to people?
  • We noted transfers out of the F and G Funds in July at the same time there were increased thransfers into the S and L Funds, is that a result of participant diversification?
  • How many participants are receiving a monthly distribution from the TSP?
  • Are there any big changes on the table for the TSP in Congress?
  • Studies show that the TSP has an overall satisfaction rating of 86%. What do you attribute this high rating?
