1. For administrative and recordkeeping purposes the Money Market Portfolio and the U.S. Government Money Market Portfolios have three Unit classes. Each unit class has the same fee structure. The Plan Manager and the Board have agreed to voluntarily waive the Program Management Fee and the Administrative Fee, respectively (but, in each case, not below zero) and/or reimburse expenses to the extent necessary to assist the Portfolios in attempting to maintain at least a 0.00% return. There is no guarantee that the Portfolios will maintain this return. This undertaking may be amended or withdrawn at any time.
2. You could lose money by investing in this investment option. Although the money market fund in which your investment option invests (the “underlying fund”) seeks to preserve its value at $1.00 per share, the underlying fund cannot guarantee it will do so. An investment in this investment option is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. The underlying fund’s sponsor has no legal obligation to provide financial support to the underlying fund, and you should not expect that the sponsor will provide financial support to the underlying fund at any time.
As stated in the current Plan Description, total Plan fees for the portfolios ranged from 0.68% to 2.47% with a maximum sales charge of 5.75% and are subject to change.
