I am in a similar situation, I expect to retire from the federal Government in about 5 years. For current contributions I have 75% going to the C fund (S&P 500), 15% to the S fund (4500 index) and 10% to the I fund (foreign index) In my balance I have about 22% in the F fund (Bond index) but I am not adding to it. I expect in about 3 to 4 years to shift a bit into the F fund and the G (cash) fund. My goal is to just live off the pension between 56 and 60 years old and then draw down the funds slowly. This all is quite doable except it depends on son's schooling costs as he will be in high school when I expect to retire and I do want to support his university education.
