Your TSP Account Number
After your TSP account has been established, the Thrift Savings Plan will mail you (postal mail) a package containing your 13-digit account number which will be the TSP’s primary means of identifying your account. In a separate package you will also receive a password for TSP account login at www.TSP.gov. You will also receive a 4-digit Personal Identification Number (PIN), which you will need to access your account on the ThriftLine (1-877-968-3778), the TSP’s automated voice response system.
Login to Your TSP Account at TSP.gov
You will need your TSP account number and either a password or ThriftLine PIN to access your TSP account through
TSP.gov or ThriftLine telephone center, respectively.
Changing your TSP Account Password
You can change your web password at any time through the My Account section of the TSP.gov website. You can also change your ThriftLine PIN to one of your choice by accessing your account on the ThriftLine. Your change will take effect immediately.
TSP.gov Web User ID
Although you cannot change your TSP account number, you can create a customized web user ID to log into your account through the TSP website. This user ID will not be valid for any other TSP purpose, but will help if you have difficulty remembering your 13-digit account number. You can establish a user ID by accessing your account on the TSP.gov.
Requesting an Account Number, Web Password, or ThriftLine PIN
- Forget your TSP account number? You can use either the TSP website (www.TSP.gov) or ThriftLine to request that it be mailed to you again.
- Forgot or lose your TSP account password? Visit the My Account section of TSP.gov or call the ThriftLine at 1-877-968-3778. If you lose your PIN, you can request a new one on the ThriftLine.
You can also contact the TSP by mail. If you make a written request, you must include your TSP account number and date of birth in your letter. You should receive your remailed account number, new web password, or new PIN within 3-5 business days, but it may take longer if you are in a remote location or outside of the United States.
