It's too bad, I would give you 100 recs if I were able! Creeps. Supposedly, though, they are working on upgrading the security so eventually (how long that is in Uncle's timeline, though, is murkier) you will have full encryption. I thought it was a bad idea when they started the direct deposit option a few years ago with such minimal security-just an invitation to scammers to clean you out. And after all that, they have the nerve to say "Oh, well, sorry you lost it all, we're not responsible, have a nice day."

Isn't that pretty much exactly how Uncle Sam operates on just about everything he does?

I wish they'd close the TSP down and just do like the private sector does and deposit into the IRA of our choice. I know, I know, the fees are lower, but this is what you're getting for it. Bad security, a sorry attitude of indifference when there are problems, and if you even for a minute belive the line of Although we are working with the financial companies involved for the return of the funds... I've got some prime real estate in the south of Florida to sell ya.....cheap.

Unfortunately I'm trapped in it, 17 or so years to go until retirement. But I only put in up to the matching 5% and the rest I invest on my own. I don't want any more of my $$$ at risk with these creeps.

Cheers!

Oh, yeah, had a bad day at the highly efficient, productive, well organized Federal office where I work yesterday, so some of the residual woke up with me, but I'm going to the Home & Garden show this weekend, so it won't last!
