International UAW Fund Change Announcement – May 2016

The International UAW has announced upcoming investment option changes for the International UAW Staff Severance Plan. Two funds will change share class following the market close on May 17, 2016. As a result of the share class changes, the fund codes and ticker symbols will change. For each fund, the new share class will have the same investment objectives and underlying investment holdings as the funds they are replacing. The only difference is that they represent a different share class and offer a lower fund expense.

Balances in, and contributions to the closing funds will automatically transfer to the new share class funds in the plan unless directed elsewhere by the participant.

International UAW Fund Change Announcement – May 2015

There will be several changes within the International UAW Staff Severance Plan over the next few months. The effective date of these changes will be July 1, 2015.

The Fidelity® Fund - Class K fund will close and be replaced by an investment option currently offered by the Plan. Assets presently invested in, or contributions (including loan repayments) currently being directed to, the Fidelity® Fund - Class K fund will automatically shift to the existing fund without any action from the participant.

Additionally, the Fidelity Freedom K® Funds will become the Plan’s Designated Default Fund for the UAW Staff Severance Plan. Currently the UAW Strategy Fund is the Plan’s Designated Default Fund.

For participants without an investment election on file at Fidelity (thereby defaulting to the UAW Strategy Fund), an automatic transfer to the Fidelity Freedom K® Funds will occur if no election is made as of market close on August, 21, 2015.

A special election window will be established for participants without an investment election on file at Fidelity. During this election window period, participants can elect to have current assets remain invested in the UAW Strategy Fund as this fund will continue to be an option in the Plan.

If you have questions regarding how these changes may affect your International UAW Staff Severance Plan or your investment option selection within the Plan, do not hesitate to contact Mainstay toll-free at 1-866-444-6246.

Disclosure Information - Rankings and Awards

Barron's Magazine - Top 100 Independent Wealth Advisors

According to Barron’s: The rankings are based on data provided by individual advisors and their firms. Advisor data is confirmed via regulatory databases, cross‐checks with securities firms and conversations with individual advisors. The formula Barron’s uses to rank advisors is proprietary. It has three major components: assets managed, revenue produced and quality of practice. Investment returns are not a component of the rankings because an advisor’s returns are dictated largely by the risk tolerance of clients. The quality of practice component includes an evaluation of each advisor’s regulatory record. The data is based on one fiscal year (7/1/22 - 6/30/23) and appeared in Barron’s on 9/18/23.
