About your investments
Your plan includes an investment lineup with a diverse array of options. These investment choices represent a broad spectrum of asset classes and risk/return characteristics to allow you to tailor your account to help meet your particular financial goals and match your investing style.
To help meet the needs of those who perhaps don’t have the time or interest in creating their own investment portfolios, our lineup also includes target-date funds.
Target date funds let you choose a professionally allocated portfolio based on the target date of the fund. The target date is the approximate date when investors in the fund would expect to retire or begin taking withdrawals.
To learn more about any of the funds available in our investment line-up, Fund Fact Sheets are available via the links on this page.

All investing involves various risks, including the possible loss of principal. You can lose money by investing in securities.
The target date is the approximate date when investors plan to retire and may begin withdrawing their money. The asset allocation of the target date funds will become more conservative as the target date approaches by lessening the equity exposure and increasing the exposure in fixed income type investments. The principal value of an investment in a target date fund is not guaranteed at any time, including the target date. There is no guarantee that the fund will provide adequate retirement income.
A target date fund should not be selected based solely on age or retirement date. Participants should carefully consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of any Fund before investing. Funds are not guaranteed investments and the stated asset allocation may be subject to change. It is possible to lose money by investing in securities, including losses near and following retirement.
Investors should consider a fund’s investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses before investing. The prospectus and if available the summary prospectus contain complete information about the investment options available through your plan. Please call 877-PRU-2100 (877-778-2100) for a free prospectus and if available a summary prospectus that contain this and other information about our mutual funds. You should read the prospectus, and the summary prospectus if available, carefully before investing. You can lose money by investing in securities.

Payment obligations and the fulfillment of any guarantees specified in the group annuity contract are insurance claims supported by the full faith and credit of PRIAC. PRIAC periodically resets the interest rate credited on contract balances, subject to a minimum rate specified in the group annuity contract. Past interest rates are not indicative of future rates.

Prudential Retirement is compensated in connection with this product when general account investment returns exceed the interest credited on contract balances. Prudential Retirement may earn fee revenue in addition to the foregoing compensation if your plan has agreed to pay contract charges, which are sometimes paid in respect of plan and participant recordkeeping and distribution services. For some plans, Prudential Retirement uses a portion of its aggregate compensation to satisfy the plan's request for allowances and for payments to defray plan expenses. If Prudential Retirement's aggregate compensation from this product and from other plan investment products exceeds the costs of servicing your plan, Prudential Retirement earns a profit; otherwise we incur a loss.
Frequent exchanging between plan investment options may harm long‐term investors. Your plan or the plan's investment funds may have provisions to deter exchanges that may be abusive. These policies may require us to modify, restrict or suspend purchase or exchange privileges and/or impose redemption fees.

Amounts withdrawn before age 59½ may be subject to a 10% federal income tax penalty, applicable taxes and plan restrictions.
