    Re: Roth TSP

    Bullit is right - your TSP contributions (to Roth TSP or Traditional TSP) do not impact your ability to open and contribute to a Roth IRA with Ameritrade. Your contribution limits to Roth IRA in...

    Re: bmneveu's Account Talk

    What do you mean by this? Doesn't everyone's biweekly TSP contributions and gov't match land in the TSP account on the Tuesday following the EFT pay day? Which would be tomorrow? Or does it vary? Or...
  6. Re: If L funds rebalance every day, is that daily dollar cost averaging?

    I always learned that dollar cost averaging was a way of not having to worry about buying in at a high point -i.e. that spreading the buys (equal amount each buy) over a period of time meant that you...
  7. Re: If L funds rebalance every day, is that daily dollar cost averaging?

    TSP website says this:

    "Every quarter (three months), the target allocations of all the L Funds except L Income are automatically adjusted, gradually shifting them from higher risk and reward to...

  9. If L funds rebalance every day, is that daily dollar cost averaging?

    I think in another thread we agreed that the TSP rebalances the designated percentage of C, S, I, G and F for each L fund daily. Does that mean that every day a person's funds would be rebalanced...

  11. Re: Using TSP G fund as your cash bucket in retirement?

    It doesn't make sense to me to fund Roth now, when I am in highest tax bracket I will ever be (I am not maximizing traditional TSP yet). Should have opened and funded Roth in early career (lower...
  12. Re: Using TSP G fund as your cash bucket in retirement?

    I opened a traditional Roth this year (June 2021) with just $200 to start the clock ticking. I still haven't received confirmation that if I move money from Traditional TSP in 2023 to Roth IRA (yes I...
  13. Re: Using TSP G fund as your cash bucket in retirement?

    I think you are referring to IN-SERVICE "Withdrawal rules from the TSP before age 59 1/2 penalty free are rigid and can be complicated." If I am reading the documentation correctly, as long as I...
  14. Re: Using TSP G fund as your cash bucket in retirement?

    Here's the problem with putting it all into a traditional IRA - I am hoping to retire at 56 and 4 months old. If I understand the rules correctly, I cannot get access to that money for three years...
  15. Re: Using TSP G fund as your cash bucket in retirement?

    I don't think the liquidity is a poblem. My understanding is that when I retire I can set up a monthly installment payment (not an annuity, just a monthly distribution) of a set amount with one...
  16. Re: Using TSP G fund as your cash bucket in retirement?

    Boghie, WOW! thanks for the detailed analysis! The 2008 scenario was exactly what I was trying to figure out. I agree that a few intermediate moves (rather than waiting the full 7) from bucket to...
  17. Re: Using TSP G fund as your cash bucket in retirement?

    evilanne,

    Alot of great questions in there, most of which I have been trying to answer. I found the TSP calculator to be a bit too simplistic - it asks for a single monthly amount that you want...
  18. Re: Using TSP G fund as your cash bucket in retirement?

    Thank you for this - it is very much a description of the bucket strategy. Keeping cash for "immediate" needs that you don't have to worry about the market, short term reserve in CDs or bonds for...

    You are welcome and I appreciate all of the discussions because I am still learning alot! I think you have identified the crux - Roth conversions aren't that helpful if your income (pension, +...
  20. Re: Using TSP G fund as your cash bucket in retirement?

    You are right and that is why the contemplation is moving most of the money out of TSP and into a traditional (more flexible) IRA and leaving the rest in TSP as "the cash bucket" in G or L income to...
  21. Re: Using TSP G fund as your cash bucket in retirement?

    I think the bucket approach is designed for the very fact that, historically there have been years where you didn't earn more than you withdraw - in fact you didn't earn anything - you lost money...

    If I understand you correctly - the 20% you are talking about is the automatic 20% withholding that TSP is obligated to withhold when they distribute money from traditional IRA. That will count...
