Important information about Vanguard Inflation-Protected Securities Fund Investor Shares distributions

Income from the Vanguard Inflation-Protected Securities Fund Investor Shares is from 2 sources: real yield and an inflation adjustment that maintains the purchasing power of investments over time. Investors interested in maintaining the purchasing power of their investments should reinvest their dividend distributions.

Because inflation fluctuates, it cannot be projected into the future with any accuracy. Measured over short periods, inflation can deviate from its long-term trend. A complete estimate of the fund's total distributions requires that an estimate of future inflation be added to the real yield. The inflation adjustment can be positive or negative, based on the change in the Consumer Price Index.
