Attention, Thrift Savings Plan participants: You can now check your online account information at tsp.gov more easily via smartphone.
Although the site was previously available via phone, the mobile version is designed to work with Android and iOS operating systems to provide an “optimal viewing experience,” the Federal Retirement Thrift Investment Board said in a news release today. (And there’s no need to download an app.)
The board actually launched the mobile version Sept. 30, but held off from an announcement because of the partial government shutdown that began the next day, spokeswoman Kim Weaver said. The word is apparently getting around, though. Just in the last week, there have been more than 60,000 smartphone log-ons to the mobile version of tsp.gov, according to the release.
