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.

Fund Facts

 
Option-adjusted duration estimates how much the value of a bond portfolio would be affected by a change in prevailing interest rates. It takes into account options embedded in the individual securities that might result in early repayment of principal, thereby shortening their duration. The longer a portfolio's duration, the more sensitive it is to changes in interest rates.

Average Maturity refers to the average time to maturity (the date a principal amount of a security becomes due or payable) of all the debt securities held in a portfolio. A relatively short average maturity results in smaller price fluctuations in response to changes in market rates of interest. A short average maturity subjects the owner of a debt portfolio to the risk that maturing debt will be replaced with debt carrying a lower interest rate.
