Q. I have my personal investments with Wells Fargo. Would it be practical to move all of my Wells Fargo investments to the TSP to avoid the 1 percent fees I am charged? I know the TSP is very low cost.

Q. I am 61 years of age and a CSRS annuitant for the past last seven years. My wife is also a CSRS annuitant (age 55). We are both in the L2020 fund. With our joint annuities we are financially whole. My question is, we are contemplating transferring 50 percent of my 2020 fund (approximately $150,000) and 50 percent of her L2020 fund (approximately $70,000) to the L2030 fund. We are both in good health. Please comment on the transfer proposal and the amounts.

The changes have resulted in a current balance of 50 percent G Fund and 50 percent C Fund. Previous to the changes, I had a much larger percentage in the G Fund. I realize I am not diversified as I probably should be. Any recommendations for reallocating my TSP?

Q. Where would I find the actual holdings in each of the TSP funds? What stocks, bonds, etc., are in the Target Funds, etc.? For financial planning, the firm we have hired would like a breakdown of what I’m holding in my account.

Q. I retired as CSRS in 2015 and have a TSP account. I’ve recently decided to hire a financial planner and he recommends to “link” my accounts (savings, IRA, TSP) to a financial management tool that consolidates & updates your investments in order to get a total view of your accounts in one location for analysis. This necessitates providing my user IDs and passwords via secure encryption. The tool does not “store” the user ID or passwords. These tools seem rather common in the financial planning profession. I still have hesitation in providing my info via a tool. Would you…
