Having been with the Federal Government for nearly 20 years, I enrolled in the TSP Pilot early on. Having sound market knowledge from the TSP Pilot has enabled me to build toward a sound and comfortable retirement.

Inspite of the current market challenges, I remain assured, my money is protected from market turbulence. I highly recommend anyone participating in the TSP subscribe to TSP Pilot.

I started on TSP Pilot in 2010 after a co-worker told me about it. Once I decided on my risk level (aggressive), I dialed in.

TSP Pilot gives me peace of mind and has allowed me to not stress when the market dips. I’ve followed all recommendations, since starting on TSP Pilot, and have watched my assets grow exponentially. I follow the recommended allocation when they are posted within a day, and I go about life, knowing that TSP Pilot, is at the controls with me as co-pilot.

– Thomas O.


TSP Pilot has provided me with excellent TSP funds allocation guidance since I signed up in 2006 (I believe that was my initial year). Having gone through a divorce, all I had was a $70K TSP balance, with a $35K TSP loan against it. Using TSP Pilot guidance on allocation distributions between the various Funds and trying to invest at the yearly IRS maximum amount (at that time about $20K), I was able to “grow” my TSP balance to approximately $450K at the end of 2013. I retired from federal service in July 2015 and managed to add additional 401K funds from a post retirement (civilian job) for a 2 year period into my TSP account and I now have an approx. $550K TSP balance; having fully retired in June 2017. Good Luck? … maybe, but I’m going to go with sound investing strategy (sometimes Aggressive portfolio distributions … sometimes Conservative portfolio distributions) – and always sound market analysis from TSP Pilot. Thank you.
