SMITH COLLEGE DC RETIREMENT PLAN  
 
Average Annual Total Returns as of 04/30/2018    (shown in percentages)  

 Variable annuities and mutual funds offered through a retirement plan are intended as long-term investments designed for retirement purposes. Money distributed from a 403(b) plan, 401(a)/(k) plan, or a 457 plan will be taxed as ordinary income in the year the money is distributed. Early withdrawals from a 403(b) plan and a 401(a)/(k) plan, if taken prior to age 59 1/2, will be subject to the IRS 10% premature distribution penalty tax, unless an exception applies. This IRS premature distribution penalty tax does not apply to 457 plans. Account values fluctuate with market conditions, and when surrendered the principal may be worth more or less than the original amount invested. 

 The performance data quoted represents past performance.  Past performance does not guarantee future results.  For month-end performance which may be lower or higher than the performance data shown please call 800-584-6001.  Investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that, when sold, an investment may be worth more or less than the original cost.  

 The returns assume reinvestment of all dividends (ordinary income and capital gains) and are net of management fees and other fund operating expenses. An asset based Administrative Fee is deducted from your account quarterly at an annual rate of 0.11% of balances held in each of the funds except for the Voya Fixed Plus Account III.  The performance data shown below does not reflect this administrative expense. If such fees had been reflected, the performance data shown for each option would have been lower. 

 The returns assume reinvestment of all dividends (ordinary income and capital gains) and are net of management fees and other fund operating expenses.  They do not reflect any plan level administrative fees, if applicable; if reflected, returns would be less favorable. 

 You should consider the investment objectives, risks and charges, and expenses of the funds carefully before investing.  The prospectus contains this and other information.  Anyone who wishes to obtain a free copy of the fund prospectuses may call their Voya representative or the number above.  Please read the prospectus carefully before investing. 

 Returns less than one year are not annualized.  Fund Inception Date is the date of inception for the underlying fund, and is the date used in calculating the periodic returns.  This date may also precede the portfolio's inclusion in the product.

 The risks of investing in small company stocks may include relatively low trading volumes, a greater degree of change in earnings and greater short-term volatility. 
 Foreign investing involves special risks such as currency fluctuation and public disclosure, as well as economic and political risks. 
 Some of the Funds invest in securities guaranteed by the U.S. Government as to the timely payment of principal and interest; however, shares of the Funds are not insured nor guaranteed. 
 High yielding fixed-income securities generally are subject to greater market fluctuations and risks of loss of income and principal than are investments in lower yielding fixed-income securities. 
 Sector funds may involve greater-than average risk and are often more volatile than funds holding a diversified portfolio of stocks in many industries. Examples include: banking, biotechnology, chemicals, energy, environmental services, natural resources, precious metals, technology, telecommunications, and utilities. 
 *The Gross Expense Ratios shown do not reflect any temporary fee or expense waivers that may be in effect for a fund. The performance of a fund with a temporary fee or expense waiver would have been lower if the gross fund fees / expenses listed had been reflected.

ADDITIONAL NOTES 
(1) The current rate for the Voya Fixed Plus Account III MC 902, Fund 4020 is 2.00%, expressed as an annual effective yield. The current rate may change and be higher or lower than the previously identified rate but is guaranteed not to be less than 1.00%. VRIAC will not apply a decrease to the current rate following a rate change initiated solely by us prior to the last day of the three-month period measured from the first day of the month in which such change was effective. Note: The current rate for an initial investment in the fixed account previously identified may be in effect for less than a full three-month period. 

(2) YOU COULD LOSE MONEY BY INVESTING IN THE FUND. ALTHOUGH THE FUND SEEKS TO PRESERVE THE VALUE OF YOUR INVESTMENT AT $1.00 PER SHARE, IT CANNOT GUARANTEE IT WILL DO SO. AN INVESTMENT IN THE FUND IS NOT INSURED OR GUARANTEED BY THE FEDERAL DEPOSIT INSURANCE CORPORATION OR ANY OTHER GOVERNMENT AGENCY. THE FUND'S SPONSOR HAS NO LEGAL OBLIGATION TO PROVIDE FINANCIAL SUPPORT TO THE FUND, AND YOU SHOULD NOT EXPECT THAT THE SPONSOR WILL PROVIDE FINANCIAL SUPPORT TO THE FUND AT ANY TIME. 
(3) Principal High Yield I Fund - Institutional Class: Principal Management Corporation ("Principal"), the investment advisor, has contractually agreed to limit the Fund's expenses by paying, if necessary, expenses normally payable by the Fund, (excluding interest expense, expenses related to fund investments, acquired fund fees and expenses, and other extraordinary expenses) to maintain a total level of operating expenses (expressed as a percent of average net assets on an annualized basis) not to exceed 0.61%. It is expected that the expense limits will continue through the period ending February 28, 2017; however, Principal Funds, Inc. and Principal, the parties to the agreement, may mutually agree to terminate the expense limits prior to the end of the period. 

(4) BlackRock Inflation Protected Bond Portfolio - Institutional Shares: As described in the Management of the Fund section of the Fund's prospectus beginning on page 38, BlackRock has contractually agreed to waive the management fee with respect to any portion of the Fund's assets estimated to be attributable to investments in other equity and fixed-income mutual funds and exchange-traded funds managed by BlackRock or its affiliates that have a contractual management fee, through April 30, 2019. The contractual agreement may be terminated upon 90 days' notice by a majority of the non-interested trustees of BlackRock Funds II (the Trust) or by a vote of a majority of the outstanding voting securities of the Fund. Other Expenses of BlackRock Cayman Inflation Protected Bond Portfolio, Ltd. (the Subsidiary) are based on estimated amounts for the current fiscal year of less than 0.01%. The Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses do not correlate to the ratios of expenses to average net assets given in the Fund's most recent annual report, which do not include the restatement of Management Fees to reflect current expense. As described in the Management of the Fund section of the Fund's prospectus beginning on page 38, BlackRock has contractually agreed to waive and/or reimburse fees or expenses in order to limit Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses After Fee Waivers and/or Expense Reimbursements (excluding Dividend Expense, Interest Expense, Acquired Fund Fees and Expenses and certain other Fund expenses) to 0.35% of average daily net assets through April 30, 2019. The Fund may have to repay some of these waivers and/or reimbursements to BlackRock in the two years following such waivers and/or reimbursements. The contractual agreement may be terminated upon 90 days' notice by a majority of the non-interested trustees of the Trust or by a vote of a majority of the outstanding voting securities of the Fund. 

(5) Janus Aspen Series Flexible Bond Portfolio - Institutional Shares: Janus Capital has contractually agreed to waive its investment advisory fee and/or reimburse Portfolio expenses to the extent that the Portfolio's total annual fund operating expenses (excluding administrative services fees payable pursuant to the Transfer Agency Agreement, brokerage commissions, interest, dividends, taxes, acquired fund fees and expenses, and extraordinary expenses) exceed 0.57% until at least May 1, 2016. The contractual waiver may be terminated or modified prior to this date only at the discretion of the Portfolio's Board of Trustees. 
(6) PIMCO Long-Term U.S. Government Fund - Institutional Class: "Other Expenses" include interest expense of 0.18%. Interest expense is borne by the Fund separately from the management fees paid to Pacific Investment Management Company LLC ("PIMCO"). Excluding interest expense, Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses are 0.475%. 

(7) Templeton Global Bond Fund - Advisor Class: The investment manager has contractually agreed in advance to reduce its fees as a result of the Fund's investments in Franklin Templeton affiliated funds (acquired funds), including a Franklin Templeton money fund, for the next 12-month period. Contractual fee waiver and/or expense reimbursement agreements may not be changed or terminated during the time period set forth above. 

(8) T.Rowe Price Funds: This fund provides a simplified option for retirement investing including professional management, broad-based diversification, and low-cost management fees. The principal value of the Retirement Funds is not guaranteed at any time, including at or after the target date, which is the approximate date when investors turn age 65. The funds invest in a broad range of underlying mutual funds that include stocks, bonds, and short-term investments and are subject to the risks of different areas of the market. The funds emphasize potential capital appreciation during the early phases of retirement asset accumulation, balance the need for appreciation with the need for income as retirement approaches, and focus more on income and principal stability during retirement. The funds maintain a substantial allocation to equities both prior to and after the target date, which can result in greater volatility.
