Rolling IRA into F Fund

Bookmark and Share

Q. I know that I can’t put my wife’s Individual Retirement Account into the Thrift Savings Plan, so we would like to invest it into an F Fund equivalent. Can you identify such a fund that we can roll her IRA into?

A. Any fund that is based on the Barclay’s Capital U.S. Aggregate Bond Index should do — the lower the cost, the better. Try AGG from iShares.

    AGG has an expense ratio of 0.22%. Vanguard’s Total Bond Market EFT (BND) and Admiral shares (VBTLX) has an ER of 0.10% So AGG is twice as expensive!
