TSP allocation


Q: I would like to receive 5 percent a year of my current TSP balance in monthly payments and not reduce my current balance. What percentage would you recommend to put in each fund to achieve this?

A: There is no fixed investment allocation, in the TSP or otherwise, that will guarantee you what you want. The closest you’ll come is 100 percent allocation to the G Fund, but right now you’ll have to settle for less than 5 percent.
