Thrift Savings Program
One of the basic needs of living independently is the need to have a sound financial plan. The sooner you begin following a financial plan, the better off you'll be. Today is not too soon to start thinking about your financial future. Even if you've only been in the Navy a few months, you can - and should - be making plans for your eventual retirement. There are countless financial plans available to Sailors who wish to seek them. One of the easiest plans to get started with is the Thrift Savings Plan. If you don't already have a sound financial plan, TSP is a good place to start. Investing in your future doesn't take a large amount of cash, so even if you are on a budget you can benefit from TSP.
