Published: December 7, 2023
Effective: Pay Period 26, 2023


Effective January 1, 2024, the Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) elective deferral limit is changing to $23,000.

Employees will have their TSP contributions matched up to 5%. Employees must not exceed the total maximum of regular and spillover contributions of $30,500 for age 50 and over, and $23,000 if under age 50.

Employees should enter the total amount they want to contribute to their TSP for both regular and the spillover method for catch-up contributions on the TSP-1, Election Form. Also, employees can split contributions between traditional and Roth TSP accounts.

Employees should review their Earnings and Leave Statement to ensure that their TSP contribution amount or percentage does not impact other deductions such as Old Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance (OASDI); Medicare; and/or retirement. 

Note: TSP contributions for Pay Period (PP) 27, 2023, will be included in the totals for the 2024 tax year (PP26, 2023 - PP24, 2024).
