As assets grow, TSP resists calls for change from Congress

Boosted by a recovering economy and a booming Wall Street, assets in the Thrift Savings Plan have continued to climb.

But as total assets have increased, so have calls to tweak the program that's provided federal employees with 401(k)-style retirement accounts since 1987. Still, the TSP has consistently resisted calls to modify its simplified, tried-and-true structure.

Alphonso Maldon, Military Compensation and Retirement Modernization Commission

It's the elephant in the room: military pay and benefits are overwhelming the Defense Department's budget. But Congress doesn't want to cut them, so it appoints an independent commission to do it by next February. Alphonso Maldon is chairman of the commission.

Following complaints of widespread discrimination, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is overhauling its system for evaluating employee performance.
