INVESTMENT BASICS
FEATURES AND HIGHLIGHTS
Please keep in mind that investing involves market risk, including possible loss of
principal, and there is no guarantee that investment objectives will be achieved. Also,
assets withdrawn from a qualified plan may be subject to a 10% penalty tax if
withdrawn prior to age 59 ½ distribution and all may be subject to income tax.
It’s Your
Retirement.

RETIREMENT DREAMS.
WILL SOCIAL SECURITY BE ENOUGH?
Ask the Social Security Administration …
Q
Should I count on Social Security for all my
retirement income?
A
No. Social Security was never meant to be the sole
source of income in retirement. It is often said that a
comfortable retirement is based on a "three-legged
stool" of Social Security, pensions and savings.
American workers should be saving for their
retirement on a personal basis and through
employer-sponsored or other retirement plans.

Totals shown reflect a $100 monthly
investment with an 8% annual return, 4%
annual wage inflation and a 25% federal tax
rate. From the taxable investments, taxes
are taken each month from deposits and
$158,981
annually upon gains. Taxes are taken on the
tax-deferred investment’s end balance. This
is a hypothetical compounding example and
$115,555
is not intended to predict or project
investment results of any specific
investment. Investment return is not
guaranteed and will vary depending upon
your investments and market experience. If
fees were reflected, the return would be
less.
Assets withdrawn from a qualified plan may
be subject to a 10% penalty tax if withdrawn
prior to age 59 ½ distribution, and all may
30 years
be subject to income tax.
OR CONSIDER ROTH
CONTRIBUTIONS —
Roth provides an option to pay taxes on contributions now
These examples are hypothetical
in nature and assume a 25% tax
bracket at distribution. They also
assume that the retirement
plan’s value earns an average
annual total return of 8%.
Investment return is not
guaranteed and will vary
depending upon the investments
and market experience.
A single contribution of $10,000
will be worth the same amount
in 20 years (discounting the
impact of inflation) if the tax
bracket remains the same.
However, if the future tax rate is
greater, the amount distributed
from the Roth account will be
greater than the post-tax amount
distributed from the traditional
401(k) account.

The hypothetical example assumes an investment that tracks the returns of the S&P 500 Index and includes dividend reinvestment. There is volatility in the market and a
sale at any point in time could result in a gain or loss. Your own investment experience will differ, including the possibility of losing money. You cannot invest directly in
the S&P. Stock values are more volatile than those of other securities. Source: FMR LLC, as of 12/31/06.
