<<Employees of the Federal government do have a 401(k) program. It's called the Thrift Savings Plan (TSP). Anyone hired after December 31, 1983 is automatically in the FERS retirement system and can contribute up to 10% of their salary into the TSP. The government will match up to 5% of the salary. Anyone hired before December 31, 1983 and in the "old" CSRS retirement system can contribute up to 5% into the TSP without any government match. Anyone in FERS who is not putting at least 5% of their pay into FERS is losing out on an immediate, guaranteed 100% return on a before tax investment because of the matching funds.>>That offer isn't availible to active duty military.
