Announcing the 2018 Prudential Guaranteed Credited Rate

The Prudential Guaranteed Investment credited rate is 3.50% until December 31, 2017.

Member Benefits began offering the Prudential Guaranteed Investment to Wisconsin public school employees in 1978. Through a long-time partnership with Prudential, we have been able to offer participants in our 403(b) and IRA program a guaranteed investment option designed for the conservative investor that provides an attractive rate of return. Prudential is a solid company that continues to receive high marks for strength and stability in the financial industry.

The Prudential Guaranteed Investment account is a long-term savings vehicle with goals and strategies fit for long-term investing. It assumes the role of a fixed-income or bond investment in your asset allocation mix and therefore may be a good choice for those looking for a more conservative approach.

Investment evaluation update

Just as we monitor our mutual funds to make sure they continue to meet our standards, we also monitor the Guaranteed Investment and evaluate Prudential Retirement Insurance and Annuity Company (PRIAC) in their role as manager of the account to ensure the best interests of our participants are being served. Member Benefits recently completed an evaluation of the Guaranteed Investment which began in the fall of 2016. Details of the evaluation will be reported in our winter issue of your$ which will be available mid-January.

*Interest is compounded daily to produce a 3.15% yield prior to the deduction of Prudential's administrative fee. 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.

All earnings on investments are credited gross of 403(b) and IRA program fees.

The Prudential Guaranteed Investment is a group annuity product issued by Prudential Retirement Insurance and Annuity Company (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.

The Prudential Investment principal and net credited interest are fully guaranteed by Prudential Retirement Insurance and Annuity Company (PRIAC). Such guarantees are based upon the financial strength and claims-paying ability of PRIAC.
