International Fund vs. G fund


Q. I have about 10 percent of my TSP invested in the International Fund and about 90 percent invested in the G fund. I do not want to take payments for the International Fund because it is down so much. Can I just take payments from the G fund and wait until the International Fund recovers, or do I have to take a proportional amount form each fund?

A. Any distributions will come from your investment funds proportionally. You may rebalance after the withdrawal is made, however.
