    ArchAngel, please log in to TSP.GOV and look at your account balance the day the IFT was effective and the day before. Let us know what the percentages were for each fund on those two days.

    Thanks, PessOptimist

    1/2/11 - 50% G, 50% S
    1/5/11 - 50% S, 50% I
    1/12/11 - Attempted 50% S, 50% G but it wouldn't let me so I went 100% G.

    I think I see what the problem was now. According to TSP.gov I had 56.66% I fund and 43.34% S fund, even though I had my previous IFT set at 50/50. I'll bet this is because I had my contribution allocations going 100% I fund. So yes, according to those numbers it seems that I was trying to bump up the S fund to 50%. I'll be sure to look at that next time.

    It appears that you could not transfer 50% from the "S" fund because you only had 43.34% in it.

    Well this makes total sense now.... you could have made an IFT for 57%G and 43% S..... i think 58%G and 44% S would have worked as well....

    You were essentially asking tsp to increase you holdings of S fund from 43.34% to 50% which you cant do if your out of IFTs. Next time make sure you pay close attention to your current allocation. Doesn't matter what you did several days or weeks ago, percentages change depending on price fluctuation.

    I had never heard that. Interesting. You would think with the thousands of IFT's that's we've recorded over the years that someone else would have run into this situation and reported it here.

    Has anyone else had this problem? I could be wrong, but I am going to guess that it is something else - unless there is a percentage limit. A 6% or 7% increase is pretty large increase for a fund that is not supposed to increase.

    I'll dig a little to see what I can find. Very interesting ArchAngel. It's nice to get a question/problem that we haven't heard 100 times already.

    Simply by the 'name' of this Thread ...

    I'd like to point out that: If you have the brain of a BEAR

    Especially one that SQUALES

    Unlimited moves to G are 'possible' and have been proven.

    That could've been it too!
