Federal Retirement Plan:
VA employees are covered by the Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS). FERS is a three-tiered retirement plan composed of 1) Social Security benefits; 2) FERS-FRAE basic benefits (pension); and 3) Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) which is a401K-type plan
How is the pension funded?VA employees hired after January 1, 2014 automatically contribute 4.4% of their salary each pay period and theVA contributes 8.3% of the employee’s salary each pay periodfor a total annual contribution percentage equal to 12.7% of the employee’s salary
Similar to the 401(k) savings plans widely available in the private sector, the TSP allows employees to tax defer a portion of their income each year, subject to the requirements of the Internal Revenue Service. For calendar year 2016, employees under the age of 50 may contribute up to$18,000, while those over age 50 are eligible to make catch-up contributions that allow them to defer up to $24,000
The Federal Government also provides anautomatic basic contribution (1% of salary)andup to 4% of salary in matching contributions, depending on the amount of the employee contribution
