April 16, 2012 -- This week on For Your Benefit, co-host John Elliott is joined by economist Dave Redden.

Redden applies sound financial planning techniques to assist individuals in developing the very best retirement plan possible for themselves.

Redden explains why he thinks the Roth TSP is a good option for many federal employees, especially young people who are just beginning a career in civil service.

In the second half of the program, Elliott and Redden speak at length about the TSP annuity, which is currently offered by MetLife as a vendor for the federal government.
