L Fund


Q. I am 26 years old and have been working in the federal system for three years. I am a GS-9 Step 2 and contribute 7 percent of my income to my Thrift Savings Plan. Since I have a long ways to go before I retire, I would like to know what percentage I should put in each fund, if any?

A. I suggest that you consider investing your money in the L Fund that most closely corresponds to your life expectancy.
