I've had two TSPs (457 Plans) throughout my life. Both were thru the county government.

While what you had may have been entitled "TSP" (Thrift Savings Plan) - it's not the same TSP that the OP was referring to. The OP specifically said I will soon be moving from private industry to a position with the federal government. The federal government TSP www.tsp.gov has extremely LOW expense ratios.

All of the managed stock funds had, IMHO, very high expense ratios. Even the SP500 index fund carried an ER of about 1%.

More evidence that the TSP that you had access to is not the same as the one that the OP was referring to - the federal government TSP has no managed funds, and there is no "S&P 500" fund - the options are defined by letter codes.
