The performance data quoted represent past performance and are net of all fees and expenses, including the estimated expense ratio of the underlying mutual funds and the Plan Manager Fee. Past performance is not a guarantee of future results. Your returns and the principal value of your account will fluctuate so your investment may be worth more or less than the original value when you withdraw your money. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted above.

1 All performance figures in the table, with the exception of the performance figures less than one year, represent the average annual compound rate of total return. All figures less than one year represent cumulative, non-annualized returns.

2 Beneficiaries are moved from one Age Band to the next Age Band on the first "rolling date" following their fifth, ninth, eleventh, thirteenth, fifteenth, sixteenth, seventeenth and eighteenth birthdays. The "rolling dates" are March 20, June 20, September 20 and December 20 (or the first business day thereafter).

3 The blended indexes are customized benchmarks that combine the fund benchmarks of each underlying mutual fund held in an investment portfolio (other than the Principal Plus Interest Portfolio) according to the investment portfolio's asset allocation during the relevant time period. The blended indexes are used to compare the performance of the corresponding investment portfolio. They are unmanaged and do not reflect the deduction of any fees or expenses.

4 These investment portfolios have limited operating histories, so the returns cited above may not be a good indication of how they may perform over a longer time period.

5 The Principal Plus Interest Portfolio seeks to preserve capital and provide a stable return. The assets in the portfolio are allocated to a funding agreement issued by TIAA-CREF life to the Board, which is the policyholder under the agreement. This funding agreement provides for a return of principal plus a guaranteed rate of interest and allows for the possibility that additional interest may be credited as declared periodically by TIAA-CREF Life. The interest rate guarantee is made to the Board only, and not to account owners or beneficiaries.
