Operational Expenses — Savers are charged $15 a year (or $3.75 per quarter) in addition to 0.09% of their account balance. The $15 annual charge will show up clearly as a transaction or charge on your quarterly statement while the 0.09% is reflected in fund performance. The total fee covers the cost of deferred comp plan staff, call center, education, mailings, printed materials, technology and tools, recordkeeping and the general administration of your plan.
Investment Management Fees and Other Fund Expenses — These fees support a fund’s management and operations, including advisory, trading, custody, and accounting activities. Investment management and other fund expenses are deducted from fund assets and therefore reflected in each fund’s return.
More detailed fund information, including expanded footnotes on the funds offered in the plan, may be contained within quarterly fund fact sheets, quarterly performance and the annual fee disclosure. Please also review all other detailed information that has been provided to you with respect to the funds in the deferred comp plan.
Fees apply to both, 457 and 401(a), plans.

A note about fund performance: Historic performance is not necessarily indicative of actual future investment performance, which could differ substantially. Total return assumes that an investment is made at the beginning of the period and redeemed at the end of the period after reinvestment of any dividends and capital gains distributions. Investment return and principal value may fluctuate so that your investment, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than the contribution to your individual account. All returns are calculated in U.S. dollars.
