No. of Recommendations: 0
As a Federal Employee, my only options for a 401K type program is the Thrift Savings Program. The version that I am involved in offers no (read that zero!) matching by the employer, but I do get to put up to 5% of my income into it as tax defered. I have 3 choices as to where to invest.

1. A government security fund
2. A government bond fund
3. A fund that mimics a general index fund.

I can take my deduction and divide it among the 3 funds, and I can take what is in there, and move it around.

Any thoughts as to how my pot should be split up, and how my deductions should be split?

thanks... Paul
