New Login Security Feature

September 27, 2017

A one-time passcode feature will replace the security image and questions that you use to log in to your online account.

A Stronger, More Convenient Login Process

In addition to greater account security, the one-time passcode feature will make it easier to reset your password or verify your identity when we don’t recognize the device you’re using to access your account.

We’ll Help You Get Started

To establish this new security feature, we’ll ask you to provide an email address or text-enabled phone number when you log in to your account.

Investments are not FDIC-insured, nor are they deposits of or guaranteed by a bank or any other entity, so they may lose value.

Investors should carefully consider investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses. This and other important information is contained in the fund prospectuses and summary prospectuses, which can be obtained from your plan’s financial professional or downloaded and should be read carefully before investing.
