Greetings Dawson1473,

I have worked for the government and contributed to TSP for several years. Your allocation is not particularly something someone else can tell you is a sound one without knowing a few more things about you.

- When do you plan to retire?
- How much risk are you willing to take with your TSP money?
- Do you have any other investments?
- How much are you putting into the program?

From what you've written so far it appears that you are taking a very conservative approach with this money. That is fine if that is what you want, but it is difficult for someone else to judge that without knowing at least a little bit more about your investment goals.
