    Re: Share Your TSP Balance and Your Age Thread

    Doesn't hurt to be safe I guess but stealing money from a TSP account, especially if you haven't yet retired, is pretty tough. TSP needs to go away from the passwords however and go to multi-tiered...

    Re: Share Your TSP Balance and Your Age Thread

    Maxing Roth IRA then TSP traditional at least up to match would probably be my advice. As far as the Roth TSP that does depend on one important thing: will you be in a higher tax bracket when you...

    Nothing to report here, just a bunch of G fund window-lickers trying to sell their snake oil. I've dropped some knowledge on you, you just don't care because you're old. :ban:

  6. Re: Buy and Hold chat: Let's talk TSP Lifecycle Funds

    Good advice here

    Like I said,



    I think even the most conservative investor should consider going 10 years beyond their target date, for me...20 years is more appropriate. But that said...
  7. Re: Buy and Hold chat: Let's talk TSP Lifecycle Funds

    2016 L Fund returns

    LIncome: 3.58%
    L2020: 5.47%
    L2030: 7.07%
    L2040: 7.9%
    L2050: 8.65%

    So the way I look at it is that if you current allocation didn't achieve that percentage based on your...

    One more time I will suggest making 4 or 5 main forums and have threads fill those forums instead of having what seems like hundreds of sub forums.

  10. Re: Does your Roth TSP balance show separately from your Traditional TSP balance?

    Can't believe this has sat here for three weeks, this is one of the most unhelpful forums on the internet.

  11. Re: Advice On Fund Allocation, 44 Year old with 20 years let till retirement

    I like what Boghie and others have said.

    15% is awesome! Keep that up until you hit your contribution limit of $18k a year, tremendous saving. Most feds should envy you but most people just...
  12. Re: Buy and Hold chat: Let's talk TSP Lifecycle Funds

    There is some theory out there that you never split a lifecycycle fund, that you should never bet beyond the market as a whole. I don't believe that at all, and think that an individual investment...

  19. Re: Buy and Hold chat: Let's talk TSP Lifecycle Funds

    So look at returns since inception for lifecycle funds:

    L2020 5.48% since 2005
    L2030 5.97% since 2005
    L2040 6.27% since 2005
    L2050 3.95% since 2011

  23. Re: Ramifications of moving everything out of TSP to Vanguard

    Well I think you either roll it over to a traditional IRA where you can continue to add money to it over time, or leave it as it is. If you have any chance to return to the federal government then...

    Re: FERS retirement at 62?

    This is a pretty good point. The difference in retiring at 57 and 62 in today's money is $120k in TSP contributions, and that certainly isn't an opportunity to dismiss lightly. It all depends on a...
