Hi Mike,<<<Anyone think that a TSP is better than a Vanguard acct?>>>I think it depends on what your needs are. There are a couple of advantages that I can think of:1. The G fund is unique to the TSP, the principal is risk free (safer than bonds) and it provides a rate of return equal to very short term securities. IIRC, the return in the last decade has been around 6 - 7 %2. The TSP's expenses ratios are actually better (lower) than Vanguard's3. The minimum age to withdrawal money from a 401k is 55 vs. 59.5 for an IRAHow ever, the selection of funds is small and the withdrawal methods from the TSP may be more restrictive than from a Vanguard IRA (I am still researching this issue).Just some points to ponder ...-helen
