Copying TSP funds outside
by  United States ndy856 | 5 Comments

Ran into this article so I like to see if there are cheaper ETFs close/similar to these that can mimics at a low management fees. I heard Vanguards are already too expensive so the article mention mentioned these: G=(SHV), F=(AGG), C=(IVV), S=(SPTM), I=(EFA)

do i start paring C S and I now?
by  United States bloobs | 6 Comments

a lot of the most successfull seasonal strategies dictate rotating out of the CS and I for the summer doldrum weeks.

but the market's recent irrational exuberance since
Powells hinted rate cut is skewing this short term trend.

Should we faithfully rotate out as directed or take a chance for a week or two more upside to the C and S at least?

whats your gut tell you?

TSPCalc Data

I know that TSP data only goes back to 2004, but has anyone tried looking at adding in the underlying indexes to give a longer time horizon? Is that something that could be done? Just curious.

Contributions
by  United States savila | 6 Comments

Hi, can anyone help me out?
I am a little confused as to how Interfund transfers work as opposed to just doing an contribution allocation. I also noticed that when I do a interfund transfer the money is going to two different places: account distribution and contribution allocation. what is recommended? Can someone explain this like I am just a fed employee with no knowledge of this. :)
Thank you.

ROTH tax myth
by  United States ndy856 | 12 Comments

Let's settle this once & for all. ROTH contribution (fro IRA/TSP/401K) WILL NOT be taxed at future withdraws of principle contribution AND growth earnings. Please help confirm this. :?:
If so, why would anyone do a big Traditional beside helping to reduce the their yearly tax liabilities?

Recent NARFE article & State (TSP?) exemptions
by  United States JimH | 8 Comments

Has anyone had the time to review the following retiring article from NARFE, regarding state exemptions (including TSP)?

For some states, they mention exemptions to the TSP.

I assume they’re referring to the ROTH TSP, right?

https://www.narfe.org/pdf/StateTaxRoundup.pdf

Would appreciate anyone with additional insight on the matter.

R,
JimH
