The new record keeping system for the Federal Government’s Thrift Savings Plan has been delayed again. The Federal Retirement Thrift Investment Board announced in May that the new system would begin in September. In August, it announced that the new system would begin in November.
The Board now says it doesn’t have enough information to announce a new schedule. The reason for the delay is apparently due to errors that occur when the system is used by a lot of people–a situation likely to occur with some frequency since the TSP system has “the largest daily transaction volume of any 401(k)-type plan in the world.”
In the meantime, agency says it “will continue to use its current well-proven monthly valued system.”
