G Fund and debt ceiling


Q. In answering this question, assume a heavy investment in the G Fund. If the nation’s debt ceiling is not raised and a debt crisis follows, can we assume that Thrift Savings Plan participants can move out of the G Fund and back to stocks without any restrictions? In other words, while recognizing that the G Fund will be made “whole” eventually, will there be an artificial time delay or other restriction before a TSP participant can move from G to a more balanced position?

A. We’ll have to see what happens if and when the time comes.
