TSP allocation


Q. I’ve participated in the Thrift Savings Plan since its inception as a CSRS employee and plan to retire next year. My current contribution allocation is 100 percent to the L2020 Fund and has been since that fund was created in 2005. Prior to the creation of the L funds, I had allocated my contributions equally to the C and G funds, which I have left untouched in the account. The account’s present holdings are approximately 50 percent L2020, with the remainder being 25 percent C and 25 percent G Fund. What should I now be doing, if anything, with those pre-L2020 account assets?

A. You should be competently and diligently monitoring and managing them to serve your financial goals with a minimum of risk. Is your current asset allocation arbitrary? If so, you should rethink it.
