Thanks for the input. I definitely agree that as you near retirement, putting a larger percentage of your account in the G fund makes perfect sense. Until you see the light at the end of the tunnel, though, I would think one would aim one's account performance as high as possible -- preferably to at least match the S&P.

Based on your input, I looked at the past performance of the F fund and was underwhelmed by it. Lately, it has offered performance that's no better than the G fund for far more risk. I reallocated the 10% I had for the F fund with 5% going to the C fund and 5% to the S fund. Now I have 30% C; 35% S; 30% I; and 5% G. A very aggressive approach, more so than any of the L funds. For now, I think it makes sense.
