Returns & Expenses

Figures shown are past results and are not predictive of results in future periods. Current and future results may be lower or higher than those shown. Results shown at net asset value have all distributions reinvested. If a sales charge had been deducted, the results would have been lower. Share price and return will vary, so investors may lose money. Investing for short periods makes losses more likely. Investments are not FDIC-insured, nor are they deposits of or guaranteed by a bank or any other entity, so they may lose value. Returns with sales charge for Class A shares reflect payment of the 5.75% maximum sales charge at the beginning of the stated periods. Definitions and other important legal information about these prices and returns are shown below.

Important Legal Information

Investing outside the United States involves risks, such as currency fluctuations, periods of illiquidity and price volatility, as more fully described in the prospectus. These risks may be heightened in connection with investments in developing countries. Small-company stocks entail additional risks, and they can fluctuate in price more than larger company stocks. Lower rated bonds are subject to greater fluctuations in value and risk of loss of income and principal than higher rated bonds. The return of principal in bond funds and in a fund's bond holdings is not guaranteed. Fund shares are subject to the same interest rate, inflation and credit risks that are associated with the bonds owned by the underlying fund. Fund shares of the U.S. Government Securities Fund are not guaranteed by the U.S. government. For more information about the risks associated with each underlying fund, go to its detailed fund information page or read its prospectus.

The return of principal for the underlying funds in this target date fund is not guaranteed. Fund shares are subject to the same interest rate, inflation and credit risks associated with the underlying bond holdings.

Bond ratings, which typically range from AAA/Aaa (highest) to D (lowest), are assigned by credit rating agencies such as Standard & Poor's, Moody's and/or Fitch, as an indication of an issuer's creditworthiness.

While not directly correlated to changes in interest rates, the values of inflation linked bonds generally fluctuate in response to changes in real interest rates and may experience greater losses than other debt securities with similar durations.

Although the target date funds are managed for investors on a projected retirement date time frame, the fund's allocation strategy does not guarantee that investors' retirement goals will be met. The target date is the year in which an investor is assumed to retire and begin taking withdrawals. American Funds investment professionals actively manage the target date fund's portfolio, moving it from a more growth-oriented strategy to a more income-oriented focus as the fund gets closer to its target date. Investment professionals continue to manage each fund for 30 years after it reaches its target date.

* Investment results assume all distributions are reinvested and reflect applicable fees and expenses. Lifetime returns are from the fund's inception on February 1, 2007, through the most recent month- or quarter-end. Investment results assume all distributions are reinvested and reflect applicable fees and expenses. The investment adviser is currently waiving its management fee of 0.10%. After December 31, 2014, the adviser may modify or terminate the waiver, but only with fund board approval. In addition, the investment adviser has in the past reimbursed certain expenses for all share classes. Investment results reflect the waiver and reimbursements, without which the results would have been lower.

  The investment adviser is currently waiving its management fee of 0.10%. After December 31, 2014, the adviser may modify or terminate the waiver, but only with fund board approval. In addition, the investment adviser has in the past reimbursed certain expenses for all share classes. Net expense ratios reflect the waiver and reimbursements, without which the expenses would have been higher.

The SEC yield reflects the rate at which the fund is earning income on its current portfolio of securities, while the distribution rate reflects the fund's past dividends paid to shareholders. Accordingly, the fund's SEC yield and distribution rate may differ.

** Allocation percentages and underlying funds are subject to the Portfolio Oversight Committee's discretion and will evolve over time. Underlying funds may be added or removed during the year.
