Government & Retirement Benefits (GRB) Platform (Formerly EBIS)

As of 22 Apr 2019, The Employee Benefits Information System (EBIS) was replaced by the new Government & Retirement Benefits (GRB) Platform.

The Government & Retirement Benefits (GRB) Platform is an automated, secure, self-service web application that allows employees to review general and personal benefits information, and allows them to calculate their own retirement estimates.

The GRB Platform also allows employees to make benefits elections for Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB), Federal Employees' Group Life Insurance (FEGLI), and the Thrift Savings Plan (TSP).

The GRB Platform continues to provide the same basic functionality as EBIS but with more user-friendly features and is Common Access Card (CAC) accessible.

For additional assistance with the GRB platform, contact the ABC-C at 1-877-276-9287, Option #4.

Thrift Saving Plan (TSP)

Implemented by Congress in the Federal Employee's Retirement System Act of 1986, the Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) is a tax deferred retirement savings and investment plan for Federal employees covered by the Civilian Service Retirement System (CSRS) or Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS) and members of the Uniformed Services. Managed by the Federal Retirement Thrift Investment Board, the program is governed under 5 Code of Federal Regulations (5 CFR), Parts 1600-1699, and offers Federal employees the same type of savings and tax benefits that many private corporations offer their employees under "401(k)" plans.

The TSP is a defined contribution plan, which means the retirement income you receive from your TSP account will depend on how much you (and your agency, if you are a FERS employee) have contributed to your account, and the earnings on those contributions.

This is different from the CSRS/FERS defined benefit programs, as benefits received from your CSRS or FERS annuity are based on years of service and salary earned. By contributing to the TSP, you defer paying taxes on the money you contribute until you withdraw the funds from your TSP account.

In addition, over the years, the money in your account will accrue earnings, which are also tax-deferred. Deferring the payment of taxes means that more money stays in your account working for you. The longer your money is invested, the greater will be the benefit of tax-deferred earnings.
