  1. 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.
