There are several Great-West Lifetime Funds, and choosing the right fund is simple. If you know when you plan to retire, you know which fund to choose. As the date in the name of the fund gets closer, the mix of investments becomes more conservative to help protect your retirement savings.
The date in a Great-West Lifetime Fund's name represents an approximate date when an investor is expected to retire (which is assumed to be at age 65) and/or begins withdrawing money. The principal value of the funds is not guaranteed at any time, including the target date. For more information, please refer to the fund prospectus and/or disclosure document.
