Hello.

Still kind of new at this, but getting better every day.

My birthday is coming up in a few weeks and Im getting ready to rebalance my 403 {b) program. I have it with TIAA_CREF. I contribute 8% of my salary to get the full 3% match my employer offers.

Right now I have it set like this:

40% Stock
20% Global Equities
10% Growth
20% Inflation-Linked Bond
10% Real Estate

last year my return on investemt was 17%.

Im looking for suggestions as far as moving money around and rebalancing the percentages. I only started this plan in 2001 so Im trying to be a bit more aggresive to try and maximize the return [Im turning 39 so only have 27 years or so to work with this plan].

And suggestions/advice would be appreciated.
