Fed Life — Open Season advice for retirees, and changes coming to TSP

There’s less than two weeks left in this year’s Open Season. Now’s the time to make health care enrollment changes in the Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) program for 2024. Federal News Network’s Tom Temin and reporter Drew Friedman recently spoke with Kevin Moss, a director at Consumers’ Checkbook, about what federal retirees should keep in mind this year.

Plus, participants in the Thrift Savings Plan will see some changes to their investments starting in 2024. The TSP’s international or “I” fund will move to a new benchmark index next year. It’ll expand the I fund and should improve its risk-return profile. Drew Friedman got more from Kim Weaver, the Federal Retirement Thrift Investment Board’s director of external affairs.
