Q. I’m 33 years old and have been in the federal government since 2004. I own a house and max out my Thrift Savings Plan every year into the L2040 fund. Can I be more aggressive with my allocations? I won’t be able to retire until at least 2034.
A. You can be more aggressive, but I can’t tell you if you should without the benefit of more information and some solid planning and analysis. The allocation you use should depend entirely on your unique resources, goals and circumstances.
