The performance data contained herein represents past performance which does not guarantee future results.

Before investing consider carefully the investment objectives, risks, and charges and expenses of the fund, including management fees, other expenses and special risks. This and other information may be found in each fund's prospectus or summary prospectus, if available. Always read the prospectus or summary prospectus carefully before you invest or send money. Prospectuses can be obtained by contacting us.
You could lose money by investing in a money market fund. There are different types of money market funds. For some, the share price of the fund will fluctuate and, therefore, when you sell your shares they may be worth more or less than what you originally paid for them. Other money market funds, although they seek to preserve the value of your investment at $1.00 per share, cannot guarantee they will do so. Certain money market funds may impose a fee upon the sale of your shares or may temporarily suspend your ability to sell shares if such funds liquidity falls below required minimums because of market conditions or other factors. An investment in any money market fund is not insured or guaranteed by Bank of America, N.A., Merrill Lynch or any bank affiliate of Merrill Lynch, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. A money market funds sponsor has no legal obligation to provide financial support to the money market funds, and you should not expect that the sponsor will provide financial support to the money market fund at any time.
Keep in mind that the Fund's 7-day yield more closely reflects the current earnings of the Fund than the total return quotations.
Expense Ratio – Gross Expense Ratio is the total annual operating expense (before waivers or reimbursements) from the fund's most recent prospectus. You should also review the fund's detailed annual fund operating expenses which are provided in the fund's prospectus.
