An investment in the CREF Money Market Account and the TIAA-CREF Money Market Fund is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. Although the Fund seeks to preserve the value of your investment at $1.00 per share, it is possible to lose money by investing in the Fund. The current yield more closely reflects the account's or fund's current earnings than does the total return.

The performance data quoted represents past performance, and is no guarantee of future results. Your returns and the principal value of your investment will fluctuate so that your accumulation units or shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted above. Performance may reflect waivers or reimbursements of certain expenses. Absent these waivers or reimbursement arrangements, performance results would have been lower. Since Inception performance shown is cumulative for funds that have less than one year of performance history.
  1. Total return includes the reinvestment of all dividends and any capital gains distribution.
  2. To see the inception date for each account/fund, as well as each fund's gross expense ratio, click on the account/fund and review the fund profile information.
  3. Beginning August 27, 2013, part or all of the investment management fees are being voluntarily waived. In addition, the fund's investment adviser is reimbursing certain other fund expenses. Beginning August 18, 2009 part or all of the service fees are being voluntarily waived. Without these changes, the 7-day current and effective net annualized yields and total returns for the fund would have been lower. The suspension of reimbursements and the addition of waivers are voluntary and may be discontinued at any time without notice.
  4. The fund's Institutional Class began operations on 07/01/1999. Performance shown for the Since Inception period and prior to the inception of the Retirement Class is based on the performance of the fund's Institutional Class. Performance has not been restated to reflect the higher expenses of the Retirement Class. If the expense differential had been reflected, performance for these periods would have been lower.
  5. The 7-day money market yield listed more closely reflects the current earnings of the money market mutual fund(s) than does the total return.
  6. No Registration Under the Investment Company Act, the Securities Act or State Securities Laws - The Fund is not a mutual fund and will not be registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") as an investment company under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, in reliance upon the exemptive provision of Section 3(c)(11) of the Investment Company Act. Shares of the Fund will not be registered with the SEC in reliance upon the exemptive provisions of Section 3(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, nor will it be registered with any state securities regulator. Accordingly, the Fund is not subject to compliance with the requirements of such acts, nor may investors in the Fund avail themselves of the protections thereunder.

    No Registration with the CFTC - The Fund may purchase, sell or trade exchange-traded futures contracts, options thereon, and other commodity interests; therefore, the Fund may be viewed as subject to regulation as a commodity pool under the U.S. Commodity Exchange Act and the rules of the CFTC. However, pursuant to CFTC Rule 4.5, the Trustee is exempt from having to register as a commodity pool operator with respect to the Fund.

    You should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses of any fund carefully before investing. Call 877 518-9161 for the Disclosure Statement that contains this and other important information. Please read the Disclosure Statement carefully before investing.
  7. The Wells Fargo Stable Return Fund is a collective investment trust fund for which Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. ("Wells Fargo") is the investment advisor and trustee. Galliard Capital Management, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Wells Fargo, serves as subadvisor to the Fund. The Fund charges an annualized fee for investment and administrative services equivalent to 0.85% of assets invested in the Fund. From this fee, the Fund will pay a fee equivalent to 0.50% of assets invested in the Fund to the Recordkeeper for administrative and recordkeeping services performed by it, or its agents, related to the purchase, sale and holding of fund units. The difference between the Fund's total annual operating expenses (expense ratio) and the investment and administrative services fee described above is attributable to investment contract fees (wrap fees), acquired fund fees, subadvisor investment management expenses, trustee, audit, valuation and 5500 fees. Fund returns reflect all income, realized and unrealized capital gains and losses and all annual fund operating expenses. The Fund is not insured by the FDIC, Federal Reserve Bank, nor guaranteed by Wells Fargo or any affiliate, including Galliard Capital Management. Past performance is not an indication of how the investment will perform in the future. For additional details, please visit http://www.galliard.com/tiaa-cref/SVJ_disclosure.pdf or refer to the Fund fact sheet.
  8. Data provided by Galliard Capital Management. Neither TIAA-CREF nor its affiliates has independently verified the accuracy or completeness of this information.
  9. Daily performance data shown above is from Interactive Data CorporationTM, and is updated at approximately 7 a.m. each morning. Month-end performance data is provided by MorningstarTM, and is updated approximately 10 days after month-end. Returns may differ slightly from those provided by fund families themselves.
  10. Accumulations in mutual funds not managed by TIAA-CREF may be subject to administrative charges. These charges are subject to change. Please review current documents related to your plan.
  11. Money market investments are neither insured nor guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) or any other government agency. Although these investments seek to preserve the value of your investment at $1.00 per share, it is possible to lose money by investing in such mutual funds or annuity accounts. The current yield more closely reflects current earnings than does the total return.
  12. Closed to new investors.
  13. The net expense ratio reflects total annual fund operating expenses excluding interest expense. If interest expense was included, returns would have been lower.
Annuities are designed for retirement savings or for other long-term goals. They offer several payment options, including lifetime income. Payments from CREF and TIAA variable annuities are not guaranteed, and the payment amounts will rise or fall depending on investment returns.
