Is your route to retirement mapped out? Training in the Thrift Saving Plan will be held April 10-11 to help Soldiers, Family members and Department of the Army Civilian employees determine the best ways for them to save. The training will be held in three sessions.

Session 2: TSP for Early and Mid-Career Civilian Employees will be held from 8:30 -- 11:30 a.m. at the Joe E. Mann Ballroom. This session focuses on what early and mid-career civilians employees can do to take full advantage of TSP.
