Vanguard Lifetime Income Program Performance
Short-term total return information is provided only as a service. Average annual returns include changes in unit value, and reinvestment of all dividends and capital gains, reduced by daily mortality and expense risk charges and administrative expense charges.
Since-inception returns for less than one year aren't annualized.
Index performance is provided as a benchmark but isn't illustrative of any particular investment. An investment can't be made in an index.
The performance data shown represent past performance, which isn't a guarantee of future results. Investment returns and principal value will fluctuate.
Vanguard Lifetime Income Program Money Market Portfolio
An investment in a money market portfolio isn't insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. Although the portfolio seeks to preserve the value of your investment at $1 per share, it's possible to lose money by investing in the portfolio.
The yield quotation for the Money Market Portfolio reflects the current earnings of this portfolio more closely than its total return quotation.
