Before investing in any mutual fund, call WEA Member Benefits at 1-800-279-4030 to request a prospectus.

**Interest is compounded daily to produce the current annual yield prior to the deduction of administrative fees of the WEA TSA Trust and the WEAC IRA program. Principal and net credited interest are fully guaranteed by Prudential Retirement Insurance and Annuity Company (PRIAC). Such guarantees are based solely upon the financial strength and claims-paying ability of PRIAC.

The Prudential Guaranteed Investment is a group annuity product issued by PRIAC. Amounts contributed to the contract are deposited in PRIAC’s general account. Payment obligations and the fulfillment of any guarantees specified in the group annuity contract are insurance claims supported by the full faith and credit of PRIAC. PRIAC periodically resets the interest rate credited on contract balances, subject to a minimum rate specified in the group annuity contract and subject to change. Past interest rates are not indicative of future rates.

PRIAC is compensated in connection with this product by deducting an amount for investment expenses and risk from the investment experience of certain assets held in PRIAC’s general account. PRIAC uses a portion of its aggregate revenue to reimburse WEA TSA Trust and WEA Member Benefit Trust for record-keeping expenses incurred in connection with the WEA TSA Trust and WEAC IRA programs.
