I wrote a short book summarizing this site. Check out the reviews on Amazon. I track all of my investments with Personal Capital. It's free and creates a one stop shop for checking your portfolio.

Not sure how to invest your TSP contributions under the BRS? Check out my new book, The Intelligent Military Investor on Amazon. It’s short and to the point, covering exactly what military servicemembers need to do to build wealth while they serve.

The Best Website I Found to Achieve Financial Independence Faster

I have investment accounts all over the place. To keep track of all of them in one place I use Personal Capital. It combines all of my accounts, shows me where I may be overpaying in fees, and provides beautiful charts showing my overall asset allocation and performance.

I use Personal Capital to track my Roth and Traditional TSP, Vanguard IRAs, banking accounts, SDP, and my Betterment taxable account, all in one place. It's free, secure and presents me with a one-stop dashboard so I can see all my money on one site.

Read my full review of Personal Capital and see how easy it can be to manage your investments in one place. Trust me, once you try it, you'll love it.

P.S. - If you have over $100,000 of assets and a 401k, you really need to run the Personal Capital 401k Fee Analyzer.

    My wife and I also opted in to the BRS asap. Can’t wait to see those matching contributions come rolling in!

    Has anyone received the contributions yet and how do you see them? I understand it goes to a traditional TSP so does that mean i have to set up new asset allocations as I only have a roth at the moment?

      No, if you opted in 1% should start flowing into your Traditional automatically the month after you opt in. So if you opted-in in January, you should see an automatic 1% match on the February LES. If you are contributing 5% to your Roth TSP OR your Traditional TSP, you should see the match automatically into your Traditional TSP, again the month after you opt in. I’m looking forward to seeing my February LES to prove that my guess is correct. You DO NOT need to change your contribution type or your asset allocation to get the match. You just need to be contributing something above 0% to get the agency match.
