Thrift Savings Plan
I can't seem to find a way to link my TSP account. Is there a workaround?
Hey Tomato Cartridge ! Set it up as an Unlinked account. 😄 I like to handle Tracking Accounts like investments (or loans) by creating a Scheduled Transaction to show regular contributions or payments, then update the account balance in the YNAB web app like this monthly. Check out the links for a glimpse into the process Superbone mentioned!
I've spent a significant amount of time, unsuccessfully, trying to get YNAB to import from the TSP. At first, YNAB would ask for a "token" but not specify that the token was being sent to a specific email account. Other times, it would specify the email and send a token that didn't work, other times no token was sent at all. Today I unlinked everything and tried setting up again. I successfully logged in directly on the TSP site (which has been revamped recently). TSP login asks for EITHER a username or account number, plus password. YNAB prompts for all three but says you can put "N/A" in either username or account number if applicable. I've tried every combination and it's not possible to link.
Yes, I know I can set it up as an unlinked account. That should be the temporary solution, not a permanent solution. Will ask YNAB support to look into this issue with the direct import provider.
