5 SMP Investment Options Overview What type of investor are you? Before investing in any investment option, consider the investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses. Contact Fidelity for a mutual fund or variable annuity prospectus or, if available, a summary prospectus containing this information. Read it carefully. As you consider which investments are right for you, it is important to consider your investing personality. Are you happy to let the professionals manage your investments for you? Or are you more likely to manage your own investments maybe with some help? Once you ve identified where you stand, review the investments available in the SMP. A description of each fund available in the SMP can be found in the Investment Options Guide. Do it for me Investor Actively choosing and managing investments can be a difficult task for some investors. If you re uncomfortable making these types of decisions on your own, you may want to consider a target date fund an approach that helps take the guesswork out of investing. The SMP offers three families of target date funds to meet the needs of SURS members. Each target date fund provides: Simplicity. Choose and monitor just one fund, rather than a mix of several funds. Diversification. Each fund invests in a different proportion of stocks, bonds, and short-term investments across multiple asset classes and investment styles. Ongoing management. Depending on which family of target date funds you choose, a team of Fidelity or TIAA professionals makes ongoing decisions and adjustments to each fund s mix of investments, so you don t have to wonder when to reallocate or rebalance. A lifetime investment strategy. Each fund invests more aggressively when the target date is further away, and gradually becomes more conservative enabling you to stay with the same fund throughout your working career and into retirement. Do it myself Investor If you know your investment objectives and want to play a more active role in building a diversified portfolio, you may prefer a more do-it-myself approach with your SMP investments. The SMP offers the flexibility to create a diverse portfolio without having to sort through an overwhelming array of fund choices. By investing through these options, you have: Diverse asset classes. An array of investment options designed to accommodate most investors needs. It s up to you to decide how much risk you want in your portfolio. Your decision, your responsibility. You decide how to allocate your assets among the menu of investment options. You are responsible for periodically evaluating and rebalancing your investments and retirement portfolio, based on your retirement goals, risk tolerance, and time horizon. 5 Diversification/asset allocation does not ensure a profit or guarantee against a loss.
6 Do it for me Investment Options Dimensional Target Date Retirement Income Funds Diversified across a mix of asset classes, in the early working years the funds focus primarily on growth assets, including US and non-us stocks. As retirement approaches, the investment emphasis shifts from growth to income risk management. More portfolio assets are invested in inflation-protected securities in an effort to protect against risks like inflation or a market decline, helping provide more clarity about the retirement income your savings may support.

Value investing is subject to risk which may cause underperformance compared to other equity investment strategies. Small cap securities are subject to greater volatility than those in other asset categories. International investments are subject to additional risks such as currency fluctuation, political instability and adverse economic conditions. Fixed income securities are subject to increased loss of principal during periods of rising interest rates and may be subject to various other risks including changes to credit quality, liquidity, prepayments, and other factors. Inflation-protected securities may react differently from other debt securities to changes in interest rates. Investments in target date funds are subject to the risks of their underlying funds, and asset allocations are subject to change over time in accordance with each fund s prospectus. An investment in or retirement income from a target date portfolio is not guaranteed at any time, including on or after the target date. For more details regarding the risks, please see the Principal Risks section of the prospectus. Please read the prospectus carefully before investing.

7 Do it for me Investment Options, cont. Fidelity Freedom Index Funds, Each Freedom Index Fund allocates its asset mix stocks, bonds, and short-term investments to become more conservative as the fund approaches the target date and beyond. Generally, the longer the time horizon to retirement, the greater the allocation to equities (stocks). On the other hand, funds with a shorter time frame to retirement are more conservative, with the goal of helping preserve income as an investor approaches and moves into retirement. For example, the Freedom Index 2020 Fund invests in higher amounts of short-term and bond funds than the Freedom Index 2040 Fund. INVESTMENT OPTIONS Fidelity Freedom Index Income Fund, Fidelity Freedom Index 2005 Fund, Fidelity Freedom Index 2010 Fund, Fidelity Freedom Index 2015 Fund, Fidelity Freedom Index 2020 Fund, Fidelity Freedom Index 2025 Fund, Fidelity Freedom Index 2030 Fund, Fidelity Freedom Index 2035 Fund, Fidelity Freedom Index 2040 Fund, Fidelity Freedom Index 2045 Fund, Fidelity Freedom Index 2050 Fund, Fidelity Freedom Index 2055 Fund, Fidelity Freedom Index 2060 Fund, TICKER SYMBOL FFGZX FFGFX FFWTX FIWFX FIWTX FFEDX FFEGX FFEZX FFIZX FFOLX FFOPX FFLDX FFLEX Fidelity Freedom Index Funds are designed for investors who anticipate retiring in or within a few years of the fund s target retirement year at or around age 65 and plan to gradually withdraw the value of their account in the fund over time. Except for the Freedom Index Income Fund, the funds asset allocation strategy becomes increasingly conservative as the funds approach the target date and beyond. Ultimately, the funds are expected to merge with the Freedom Index Income Fund. The investment risk of each Freedom Index Fund changes over time as the fund s asset allocation changes. These risks are subject to the asset allocation decisions of the investment adviser. Pursuant to the adviser s ability to use an active asset allocation strategy for the Freedom Funds, investors may be subject to a different risk profile compared to the fund s neutral asset allocation strategy shown in its glide path. The funds are subject to the volatility of the financial markets, including that of equity and fixed income investments in the U.S. and abroad, and may be subject to risks associated with investing in high-yield, small-cap, commodity-linked, and foreign securities. No target date fund is considered a complete retirement program and there is no guarantee any single fund will provide sufficient retirement income at or through retirement. Principal invested is not guaranteed at any time, including at or after the funds target dates. 7

TIAA-CREF Lifecycle Index Funds - Class As with all mutual funds, the principal value of a Lifecycle Fund isn t guaranteed and will fluctuate with market changes. The target date approximates when investors may plan to start making withdrawals. However, you are not required to withdraw the funds at that target date. After the target date has been reached, some of your money may be merged into a fund with a more stable asset allocation.* INVESTMENT OPTIONS TIAA LIFECYCLE INDEX FUNDS TIAA-CREF Lifecycle Index Income Fund Class TIAA-CREF Lifecycle Index 2010 Fund Class TIAA-CREF Lifecycle Index 2015 Fund Class TIAA-CREF Lifecycle Index 2020 Fund Class TIAA-CREF Lifecycle Index 2025 Fund Class TIAA-CREF Lifecycle Index 2030 Fund Class TIAA-CREF Lifecycle Index 2035 Fund Class TIAA-CREF Lifecycle Index 2040 Fund Class TIAA-CREF Lifecycle Index 2045 Fund Class TIAA-CREF Lifecycle Index 2050 Fund Class TIAA-CREF Lifecycle Index 2055 Fund Class TIAA-CREF Lifecycle Index 2060 Fund Class TICKER SYMBOL TRILX TLTIX TLFIX TLWIX TLQIX TLHIX TLYIX TLZIX TLXIX TLLIX TTIIX TVIIX 8 *Lifecycle Funds share the risks associated with the types of securities held by each of the underlying funds in which they invest.

9 Do it myself Investment Options The lineup of investment options in the SMP gives you a choice of mutual funds that cover the major asset classes: stocks, bonds, short-term, and specialty investments. These investment options give you the flexibility to build your own strategy to meet your needs. These investments are categorized as either passively managed or actively managed based on how investments within the fund are managed. Passively Managed (Index) Funds Within the SMP, you can invest in a variety of pre-screened passively managed funds. Passively managed funds commonly known as index funds seek to match their benchmark s performance, rather than beat their benchmark. Because the objective is to simply mirror the holdings and return of a particular index, less research is needed, transactions occur less frequently, and expenses tend to be lower than those of actively managed funds. Ultimately, index funds are designed to provide exposure to a broad selection of securities at a relatively low cost. While these funds typically perform very similarly to the index they track, you should be aware that index funds cannot be expected to meet or beat the index s performance. The chart below shows passively managed funds available in the SMP, along with which provider is record keeping the fund.

In general, the bond market is volatile, and fixed income securities carry interest rate risk. (As interest rates rise, bond prices usually fall, and vice versa. This effect is usually more pronounced for longer-term securities.) Fixed income securities also carry inflation risk, liquidity risk, call risk, and credit and default risks for both issuers and counter parties. Unlike individual bonds, most bond funds do not have a maturity date, so holding them until maturity to avoid losses caused by price volatility is not possible. Stock markets are volatile and can fluctuate significantly in response to company, industry, political, regulatory, market, or economic developments. Investing in stock involves risks, including the loss of principal. 9
10 Do it myself Investment Options Actively Managed Funds Actively managed funds seek to beat, or exceed, their benchmarks. Unlike index funds, the managers of actively managed funds do not attempt to mirror the holdings and performance of an index. These fund managers have flexibility to actively seek out investments that they believe will beat, or exceed, the performance of a particular index. Since actively managed strategies often involve a great deal of research, transactions within these funds tend to occur more frequently and expenses tend to be higher than those of passively managed funds.

Although the fund seeks to preserve the value of your investment at $1.00 per share, it cannot guarantee it will do so. The Fund may impose a fee upon the sale of your shares or may temporarily suspend your ability to sell shares if the fund s liquidity falls below required minimums because of market conditions or other factors. An investment in the fund is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. The fund s sponsor has no legal obligation to provide financial support to the fund, and you should not expect that the sponsor will provide financial support to the fund at any time.
11 SMP Default Investment Options If you have not selected an investment mix in the SMP, your future contributions will be invested in the target date fund (with your chosen investment service provider) that has a target retirement date closest to the year you might retire, assuming a retirement age of 65. Default Investment Options for Fidelity and TIAA Accounts Please see the charts below to determine in which fund your contributions will be invested if no elections are on file. If your contributions are initially invested in the designated default option, you have the right to transfer out of that option to another investment option at any time.

They are often the largest component of retirement plan costs and are paid by all shareholders of the investment option. Typically, asset-based fees are reflected as a percentage of assets invested in the option and often are referred to as an expense ratio. You may multiply the expense ratio by your balance in the investment option to estimate the annual expenses associated with your holdings. Asset-based fees are deducted from an investment option s assets, thereby reducing its investment return. Fee levels can vary widely among investment options, depending in part on the type of investment option, its management (including whether it is active or passive) and the risks and complexities of the option s strategy. There is not necessarily a correlation between fees and investment performance, and fees are just one component to consider when determining which investment options are right for you.
