They have been talking about adding a Roth option to the TSP for a while now. I hope they do it. It would make things much easier (for me at least). You can't beat the TSPs low costs!

I think the automatic enrolement option will be one of the L lifecycle funds. I think that is much better than the G fund.

Is this a result of those who know think that social security won't be around? If there is a ROTH IRA fund will it be something we can choose, or will it just be a single fund the government picks out for us?

I think all TSP funds will be present in the ROTH side of it, just like normal TSP. I bet it will be expensive to inplement, as they will almost have to give everyone a second account to keep ROTH seperate from normal 401K contributions.

Nah, it's a very simple fix. You just add and track a Roth 401K; not a major big deal as many employers, including at least a few Federal employers with separate 401K plans in addition to TSP, have already added.
