Longer-Term Inactive Account Allocations

For those looking for a longer term, less active allocation, one where you won't have to make multiple transfers during the year
, here are some possible allocations based on our current long term market outlook.  You can find your risk tolerance level and choose an allocation you are comfortable with based on it.  Here are some examples:
                                               
2008 - Updated 5/13/08 
Risk Tolerance G Fund F Fund C Fund S Fund I Fund
Aggressive 40% 0% 30% 15% 15%
Moderate 40% 15% 25% 10% 10%
Conservative 45% 20% 20% 10% 5%

The moderate, and more so, the conservative approach are not geared to achieve the highest returns each year per se, but to be more defensive in an effort to make capital preservation a higher priority.
