The Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) is a major part of future income during retirement in the financial planning for many federal employees.

How do your investing habits compare with other federal employees and retirees? How long have you been investing in the TSP? How often do you trade? How do you react to significant swings in stock prices?

The survey is now closed and we have posted the preliminary results. We thank everyone for their interest and participation. Readers are also welcome to post comments for everyone to see at the bottom of this article.
