Military TSP


Q. I am currently serving in the Army. I have completed five years of service and have been contributing 5 percent into my traditional TSP account. One-hundred percent of my contributions are going into the G Fund. What fund or percentage of funds would you recommend? I am already a staff sergeant and will serve at least 20 years. I am also aware of the changes to TSP matching for military members and the reduction to retirement percentage that will happen if I elect to defer my legacy plan.

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