1. Figure out your personal tolerance for risk.
2. Set your bond allocation accordingly.

Bond funds are not locked in for anything, but risk losing capital if interest rates go up, but only if you sell them before thier Duration has passed.

CCP has all sorts of great articles about bonds.  Go to the "bonds" category, lower right of the home page.
