The Thrift Savings Plan has issued an announcement warning against federal employees and retirees using third-party mobile apps to manage their accounts.
There are many such mobile apps offered online, according to TSP, but as the fund’s website puts it, they are “NOT sponsored by TSP.
Providing your TSP account credentials to third-party applications may jeopardize the security of your account,” TSP warns. “The TSP cannot endorse any information or advice provided by third-party applications.
Account holders who may be concerned about their accounts should check the fund’s Security Center online, or phone 1-877-968-3778.
