Estimated
Expense Charge

 
Expenses are estimated each year based on projected expense and asset levels. Differences between actual expenses and the estimate are adjusted quarterly and are reflected in current investment results.

The Account’s total annual expense deduction appears in the Account's prospectus, and may be different than that shown herein due to rounding. Please refer to the prospectus for further details.
 
 

30 Day
SEC Yield

 
The 30-day SEC yield displayed is the yield of the securities within the portfolio adjusted for inflation, as measured by the Consumer Price Index (CPI). This 30-day yield, because of the adjustment, may be more volatile than 30-day SEC yields typically quoted on traditional (nominal) bond investments. The 30-day SEC yield is based on yield to maturity of a fund's investments over a 30-day period and not on the dividends paid by the fund, which may differ.

Performance Returns 
Average annual total return is a hypothetical rate of return that, if achieved annually, would have produced the same cumulative total return if performance had been constant over the entire period. Average annual total returns smooth out variation in performance; they are not the same as actual year-by-year results. Also, it is the average annual profit or loss realized by an investment at the end of a specified calendar period, stated as the percentage gained or lost per dollar invested.

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 accumulation units or shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted above. Performance may reflect waivers or reimbursements of certain expenses. Absent these waivers or reimbursement arrangements, performance results would have been lower. Since Inception performance shown is cumulative for funds that have less than one year of performance history. For investments with exceptional performance, please note that performance fluctuates and currently may be lower than noted here.

Investing in this account involves risk that the market values of these bonds may be affected by changes in investors' inflation expectations or changes in "real" rates of interest (i.e., a security's return, above the inflation rate).

1The Barclays U.S. TIPS Index measures the performance of fixed-income securities with fixed-rate coupon payments that adjust for inflation as measured by the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers. You cannot invest directly in this index.
