On June 1, 2017, the methodology used to calculate the S&P Target Date Indices was changed. Prior to June 1, 2017, the S&P Target Date Indices were comprised of ETFs, adjusted to remove the impact of ETF fees. Effective June 1, 2017, the S&P Target Date Indices are comprised of underlying indices of securities. 1Please refer to the prospectus for additional information about cut-off times. Total return assumes reinvestment of income. The Fund's adviser and/or its affiliates have contractually agreed to waive fees and/or reimburse expenses to the extent Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses (excluding acquired fund fees and expenses, dividend and interest expenses related to short sales, interest, taxes, expenses related to litigation and potential litigation and extraordinary expenses) exceed 0.39% for A Shares, 0.97% for C Shares, 0.22% for I Shares, 0.75% for R2 Shares, 0.50% for R3 Shares, 0.25% for R4 Shares, 0.10% for R5 Shares, 0.00% for R6 Shares and 0.39% for T Shares of the average daily net assets. The Fund may invest in one or more money market funds advised by the adviser or its affiliates (affiliated money market funds). The Fund's adviser has contractually agreed to waive fees and/or reimburse expenses in an amount sufficient to offset the fees and expenses of the affiliated money market funds incurred by the Fund because of the Fund's investment in such money market funds. This waiver is in effect through 10/31/2018 for A Shares, 10/31/2018 for C Shares, 10/31/2018 for I Shares, 10/31/2018 for R2 Shares, 10/31/2018 for R3 Shares, 10/31/2018 for R4 Shares, 10/31/2018 for R5 Shares, 10/31/2018 for R6 Shares and 10/31/2018 for T Shares, at which time the adviser and/or its affiliates will determine whether to renew or revise it. The difference between net and gross fees includes all applicable fee waivers and expense reimbursements. Mutual funds have fees that reduce their performance: indexes do not. You cannot invest directly in an index. The S&P Target Date Index Series (New) reflects exposure to various asset classes included in target date funds driven by a survey of such funds for each particular target date. These asset class exposures are represented by indices of securities in the index calculation. Prior to May 31, 2017 the asset class exposures were represented by ETFs net of fees. The Index returns are calculated on a daily basis. The performance of the Lipper Mixed-Asset Target 2050 Funds Average includes expenses associated with a mutual fund, such as investment management fees. These expenses are not identical to the expenses charged by the Fund. An individual cannot invest directly in an index. Total return figures (for the fund and any index quoted) assume payment of fees and reinvestment of dividends (after the highest applicable foreign withholding tax) and distributions. Without fee waivers, fund returns would have been lower.

The Morningstar RatingTM for funds, or "star rating", is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed-end funds, and separate accounts) with at least a three-year history. Exchange traded funds and open-ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product's monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of products in each product category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars, and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The weights are: 100% three-year rating for 36-59 months of total returns, 60% five-year rating/40% three-year rating for 60-119 months of total returns, and 50% 10- year rating/30% five-year rating/20% three-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10-year overall star rating formula seems to give the most weight to the 10-year period, the most recent three-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods.Rankings do not take sales loads into account.
The following risks could cause the fund to lose money or perform more poorly than other investments. For more complete risk information, see the prospectus. This investment is not a complete retirement program and may not provide sufficient retirement income. Target date funds are funds with the target date being the approximate date when investors plan to start withdrawing their money. Generally, the asset allocation of each fund will change on an annual basis with the asset allocation becoming more conservative as the fund nears the target retirement date. The principal value of the fund(s) is not guaranteed at any time, including at the target date. There may be additional fees or expenses associated with investing in a Fund of Funds strategy. Asset allocation does not guarantee investment returns and does not eliminate the risk of loss.
