PLEASE NOTE: Many providers of 401(k) investment and administration services are
less than candid about expense ratios, 12b1 fees and other investment expenses charged
by every mutual fund and insurance product. If you have trouble obtaining this information,
you may obtain it at "www.Morningstar.com" by looking up the "ticker symbol" of funds
being recommended for investment.
