Q. Should I put some or all my TSP money into a Roth TSP? I’m almost 30, make around $59,000 a year and want to make aggressive choices so my money can grow. What should I do?

A. The answer depends entirely upon your predictions about your future income tax rates.

    If you wish to be aggressive, you should max out your contributions every year and select the highest numbered L fund – currently L2050.

    If you believe you will retire in a higher tax bracket, then go Roth TSP. If you only contribute a small amount into your TSP account, chances are you will retire with a small-ish balance and thus a lower tax bracket at withdrawal.
