The “target date” in a target date fund is the approximate date an investor plans to start withdrawing money. Because target date funds are managed to specific retirement dates, investors may be taking greater risk if the actual year of retirement differs dramatically from the original estimated date. Target date funds generally shift to a more conservative investment mix over time. While this may help to manage risk, it does not guarantee earnings growth nor is the fund’s principal value guaranteed at any time including at the target date. You do not have the ability to actively manage the investments within target date funds. The portfolio managers control security selection and asset allocation. Target date funds allocate their investments among multiple asset classes which can include U.S. and foreign equity and fixed income securities.

Participant Investment Direction

By allowing participants to direct the investment of their accounts, the Trustees intend the Plan to meet the requirements of Section 404(c) of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 ("ERISA"). Under that section, the Plan trustees may be relieved of liability for any investment losses which are the direct and necessary result of investment instructions given by a participant or beneficiary.

A telephone system, John Hancock (1-800-294-3575)and the website at mylife.jhrps.com allows you to check your account values, change your investment elections for future contributions, or transfer amounts from one investment fund to another on any day on which the New York Stock Exchange is open. Instructions received and accepted by 4PM Eastern time will generally be processed at the closing price on that day; instructions received and accepted after 4PM or on a non-business day will generally be processed at the closing price on the next business day.

Your John Hancock enrollment packet contains more specific information about John Hancock's telephone system, its hours and its capabilities.

To protect your investments, if you are incapacitated for a period which is expected to last more than 10 Business Days and you have not appointed a legal representative, the Executive Administrator when informed of the incapacity will transfer your Account Balance to the New York Life Stable Value Fund until you inform the Plan that your incapacity no longer exists or until you have appointed a legal representative.

It is important to recognize that each investment fund represents a different balance of risk and reward. Each Plan participant must consider what level of risk and reward best suits his circumstances and tolerance for risk and direct the investment of his account accordingly. You may want to consider dividing your account among several of the investment funds to achieve the combination of risk and reward which is best for you. John Hancock has been engaged to provide general information to participants in an effort to educate them about the selection of an appropriate investment mix. If you would like information about any of the investment options, you can call the Fund Office or contact John Hancock through its telephone system 8AM through 10PM any business day.

Plan Amendment

The Trustees have the right to amend the Plan to add or remove investment options and require Plan participants to transfer into or out of certain investment funds at any time.

Valuation of Accounts

The trust is valued at fair market value at the close of business on the last business day of each calendar quarter. Valuation of the Trust is the basis for determining the value of your account. You share in the Plan’s investment gains and losses in each investment fund in the proportion that your account balance in each investment fund bears to the account balances of all participants in that investment fund and in accordance with the rules governing each of the mutual funds. As a practical matter, when you elect to invest in one or more of the mutual funds available under the Plan, you are electing to purchase units in the mutual fund, which can increase or decrease in value. Your overall Account Balance is the sum of your interest in all of the investment funds, that is, the value of all the mutual fund units purchased for your account, less any Plan expenses charged to your account. Your share of Plan expenses will include a charge for maintaining your account, any transaction charges that might specifically apply to your account, and a proportionate share of any general expenses
