max TSP contribution before separation early in year


I intend to separate from Federal service in 2022 after working only long enough to max out my Roth TSP (which the annual leave payout apparently cannot be used to do). If I enter 100% on line 8 of the TSP Election Form, will the contribution amount to whatever my take-home pay otherwise would have been after the usual deductions (medicare, taxes, FEHB, FEGLI, OASDI, FERS), or must I compute it?

You don't need to compute it yourself. If you elect 100% they will, as you suggest in your question, take everything after the mandatory deductions.
