Gross / Net Expense Ratio

7-Day Current / Effective Ann. Yield
The current yield more closely reflects current earnings than does the total return.
7-Day Current Annualized Yield – A simple interest calculation. A measure of return that divides average net income received over a 7-day period by the average balance in your account and multiplies the result by 365 to get an annual equivalent. This measure reflects income actually received over the last 7 days and differs from Effective Annualized Yield in that it does not reflect compounding.
7-Day Effective Annualized Yield – A compound interest calculation. A measure of return that compounds the 7-Day Current Yield to an annual figure. This measure assumes that dividends are reinvested and that an investor will earn the 7-Day Yield for an entire year. It also reflects interest earned on interest, or compounded interest.

Beginning August 18, 2009, part or all of the 12b-1 distribution expenses of the Retail Class of the TIAA-CREF Money Market Fund are not being reimbursed to the fund's distributor. The fund's adviser is also waiving part or all of the investment management fees and reimbursing certain other Fund expenses. Without these changes, current and effective annualized yields and total returns would have been lower. Theses voluntary fee waivers and reimbursements may be discontinued at any time without notice.
An investment in the fund is neither insured nor guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other U.S. government agency. The fund will attempt to maintain a stable net asset value of $1.00 per share, but it is possible to lose money by investing in the fund. The current yield more closely reflects the fund's current earnings than does the total return.
