1.
Performance figures include the reinvestment of all dividends and any capital gains distribution.

The Since Inception values presented for the Lifecycle 2055 Fund and the Global Natural Resources Fund, Lifestyle Income Fund, Lifestyle Conservative Fund, Lifestyle Moderate Fund, Lifestyle Growth Fund and Lifestyle Aggressive Growth Fund are cumulative values and not average annualized total returns.
2.
The net annual expense ratio represents expenses after reimbursement and waivers, while the gross annual expense ratio represents expenses without any reimbursements and waivers. Certain funds have expense reimbursement arrangements that will continue through at least July 31, 2013, except for equity funds and lifestyle funds, which have an expiration date of February 28, 2014 and September 30, 2013, respectively, and can only be changed with approval of the Board of Trustees. Without these waivers and reimbursements, Fund expenses would be higher and their performance would have been lower.
3.
The fund's Institutional Class began operations on July 1, 1999. Performance shown prior to the inception of the Retail Class is based on the performance of the fund's Institutional Class. Performance has not been restated to reflect the higher expenses of the Retail Class. If the expense differential had been reflected, performance for these periods would have been lower.
4.
Beginning August 18, 2009, part or all of the 12b-1 distribution expenses of the Retail Class of the TIAA-CREF Money Market Fund are not being reimbursed to the Fund's distributor. The Fund’s adviser is also waiving part or all of the investment management fees and reimbursing certain other Fund expenses. Without these changes, current and effective annualized yields and total returns would have been lower. Theses voluntary fee waivers and reimbursements may be discontinued at any time without notice.

The TIAA-CREF Money Market Fund is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. Although the fund seeks to preserve the value of your investment at $1 per share, it is possible to lose money by investing in the fund.
The current yield more closely reflects the fund's current earnings than does the total return.

TIAA-CREF Individual & Institutional Services, LLC and Teachers Personal Investors Services, Inc., members FINRA, distribute securities products. Investment products are not FDIC insured, are not bank deposits or bank guaranteed, and may lose value.
