Investment Options

Target Retirement Funds

Target retirement funds are used as your default investment option. They are for investors seeking automatic asset allocation — just choose one fund geared to the year you anticipate retiring or withdrawing money from your account to ensure a well diversified investment mix for years to come.

These funds offer instant diversification by providing a mix of stocks, bonds, and cash equivalents. Each fund adjusts the mix of stocks, bonds, and cash equivalents over time, becoming more conservative as the fund nears its target retirement date.

Trading restrictions and redemption fees

Frequent trading and attempting to time the market is discouraged. Before you can transfer money from the Stable Value Fund into the State Street Yield Enhanced STIF, or the SDBA, you must first transfer the money into another core investment option and keep it there for 90 days. Once the 90-day period is over, you may transfer the money into any fund or the SDBA. Some funds may enforce trading restrictions and/or redemption fees, including those in the SDBA. You should always read the fund fact sheets carefully before investing. You can find fund fact sheets when you log in to your retirement investment account.

As of this printing, the following funds impose trading restrictions: American Funds imposes trading restrictions on its EuroPacific Growth Fund. If an investor transfers $5,000 or more out of the fund, he or she must wait a period of 30 days before transferring $5,000 or more back into the fund. Transfers of less than $5,000 into the fund during the 30-day period will be accepted.
