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.

Morningstar is an independent service that rates mutual funds and variable annuities.
For each fund/account with at least a three-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating™ based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a fund's/account's monthly performance (including the effects of sales charges, loads, and redemption fees), placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. Where applicable, Morningstar's performance rankings are based on linked performance that considers the differences in expense ratios, while actual performance data shown does not reflect such differences.
The top 10 percent of funds/accounts in a category receive five stars, the next 22.5 percent receive four stars, and the next 35 percent receive three stars, the next 22.5 percent receive two stars and the bottom 10 percent receive one star. (Each share class is counted as a fraction of one fund/account within this scale and rated separately, which may cause slight variations in the distribution percentages.) Morningstar proprietary ratings on U.S.-domiciled funds/accounts reflect historical risk-adjusted performance, are subject to change every month. They are derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five- and ten-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. Please note, Morningstar now rates group variable annuities within the open-end mutual fund universe.
