TSP Policies Will Be Affected By This House-Approved Bill

With a bipartisan vote, the House of Representatives enacted a bill (HR-2954) that would change various retirement savings plans, including the Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) and other comparable programs. Among its many other provisions, the bill will:

  • Raise the age limit at which required minimum distributions (RMDs) must start from the current 72 to 73, then increase it to 74 beginning in 2028 and to 75 beginning in 2032.
  • Raise the catch-up contribution limit to $10,000 for those between the ages of 62 and 64. These are additional investments worth up to $6,500 this year that participants over 50 years of age can make in a calendar year, which will be in addition to the usual investment maximum in such plans ($20,500 this year).
  • To account for inflation, make the mechanism for increasing the standard investment limit and the catch-up limit more generous. 
  • Allow employees to get matching contributions to their retirement plans for the value of student loan payments they made instead of investing them into their accounts. 
  • Allow victims of domestic abuse to make penalty-free withdrawals of whichever is greater among the two: $10,000 or half the account value.
