Q. I thought the G Fund was supposed to be stable and even though you would not gain much, you should not lose money. I received my TSP statement and it says I lost $3,000 in 2016. So if I lost that much, I really lost more because of what I put in and the agency matches. That’s a lot of money. Did someone at TSP make an error? Does that sound correct that I could have lost money in it?
A. Either you are reading your statement incorrectly or there has been an error. Your principle in the G Fund is guaranteed against loss.
