There are three major retirement systems to cover NIST employees although most employees are covered by the Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS). A major component of FERS is the Thrift Savings Plan (TSP). All are government-wide programs administered and managed by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) or the Federal Retirement Thrift Investment Board. For information about each program, you can visit one of the "Resources" links found on the right side of this page.
