The performance data quoted represents past performance, and is no guarantee of future results. Your returns and the principal value of your investment will fluctuate so that your shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost.

This fund is subject to risks, including: Asset Allocation Risk, Active Management Risk, Market Risk, Company Risk (often called Financial Risk), Foreign Investment Risks, Large-Cap Risk, Small-Cap/Mid-Cap Risk, Interest Rate Risk, Income Volatility Risk, Call Risk, Credit Risk, Market Volatility and Liquidity Risk, Prepayment Risk, Extension Risk and Risks for Inflation-Indexed Bonds. Because the fund's investment glidepath gradually decreases the fund's equity holdings and increases its fixed-income holdings, the fund's overall level of risk is expected to gradually decline over time.

The Net Expense Ratio includes fees for the Lifecycle Funds and fees for the underlying funds; each Lifecycle fund indirectly bears its pro rata share of the fees and expenses incurred by the underlying funds. The net annual expense charge reflects a contractual fee waiver and reimbursement of certain expenses by the fund's adviser through September 30, 2015. The reimbursement does not cover the fee for services provided in connection with the offering of this class on retirement platforms. See the current prospectus for information on expenses.
The fund's benchmark is a weighted average of the benchmarks for each of the underlying funds in which the fund invests. The fund's target allocations to each underlying fund will change as the fund approaches its target retirement date, and the benchmark weightings will change accordingly. You cannot invest directly in this index.
