    L Income is a good idea. And if you can tolerate a little more risk, go to one of the outlying L Funds. L2020, L2030, L2050. The higher the targeted year, the higher return (but also higher risk/volatility).

    And of course, you don't have to do it all at once. You have 2 IFTs per month. You can split it up and just transfer a little at a time. this is especially important if you DO go to all C. It will reduce your risk of putting all your Funds in C, only to see the market drop on you. If you are going in to C a little at a time, it doesn't matter near as much whether the market is going up or down. It will average out.

    Good Luck. Let us know what you decide.

    You are incredibly ahead of the game owning your house. Be optimistic in a bull market like we are in and invest and then retreat to bonds (F) or Treasuries (G) when things reverse.
