  • Similar to the 401(k) savings plans widely available in the private sector, the TSP allows employees to tax defer a portion of their income each year, subject to the requirements of the Internal Revenue Service. For calendar year 2017, employees under the age of 50 may contribute up to $18,000, while those over age 50 are eligible to make catch-up contributions that allow them to defer up to $24,000

Community Description:

Welcome to four seasons of exploring, adventuring, and enjoying all there is to do in Wisconsin. Who knew Wisconsin was a premier destination for lighthouses, waterfalls, caves, world class fishing, re-living (and making) history, professional sports, and the arts at their finest. Here in Wisconsin we have a knack for balancing the traditional with the cutting-edge, always seeking and finding new ways to have fun.

Green Bay is Wisconsin’s oldest settlement. The very first visitors to Greater Green Bay were successful entrepreneurs. From beaver pelts for European hat makers in the 1600s, to the invention of the world’s first splinter-free toilet paper in the early 1900s, our ancestors used the area’s waterways to grow the community’s prosperity. Blessed with an abundance of natural resources, Green Bay was, and continues to be a major shipping center. The city’s largest employers remain the paper and shipping industries. With continuous development in Green Bay and its surrounding communities, the area boasts a progressive atmosphere from industrial parks to shopping districts.

Residents who move away to another city, often return home for the quality of life, family-friendly values and strong business community – not to mention the area’s contagious spirit and personality. When you visit us, we’re confident you’ll love what you find.
