TSP and inflation


Q. With a 300 percent increase in the money supply since 2008, I believe inflation will have a devastating effect in the years to come. Is there any recommended Thrift Savings Plan strategy to prepare for it if it occurs? From the risk information on the TSP website, it appears inflation will have a negative risk on all of the TSP funds.

A. The C, S, I and G funds should be the most resistant to inflation pressure.

  1. Regardless of any fear one may have about inflation or fear of “insert name of fear here” the best strategy is to invest as much money as your income and budget allows. Max out contributions to the TSP and an IRA every year.

    You should not fret over what may or may not happen but prepare for the best retirement possible which means invest as much as you can.
