Fund past performance, as shown, is no guarantee of how the fund will perform in the future. The performance shown has been annualized for periods greater than one year. Investment returns and principal value will fluctuate, so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. For current performance, visit www.icmarc.org.

The initial offering date of the R7 share class was October 11, 2013. As a result, performance information for the R7 share class prior to its initial offering date is the performance of the Fund's R5 share class net of fees and expenses. The R7 share class fees and expenses are 0.09% lower than the total fees and expenses of the Fund's R5 share class.

Fund performance is shown comparing it to a "benchmark" which may be a (i) broad-based securities market index (ii) a group of mutual funds with similar investment objectives, or (iii) a short term government backed debt obligation such as a U.S. Treasury Bill. An index is not available for direct investment, is unmanaged, and does not reflect the costs of portfolio management or trading. A fund's portfolio may differ from the securities held in an index.

d.

Those asset class benchmarks are the Barclays U.S. Intermediate Aggregate Bond Index for the fixed income asset class and the S&P 500 Index for the equity asset class. Should the target allocations for the Fund between those asset classes change, the percentage allocations to the corresponding indexes will also change when calculating the custom benchmark.

For each fund with at least a three-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating™ based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a fund's monthly performance (including the effects of sales charges, loads, fee waivers, and redemption fees), placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of funds in each category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a fund is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five- and ten-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. For funds with loads, the Morningstar rating on a load-waived basis is provided, when available. Load-waived ratings do not include any front- or back-end sales loads and are intended for investors that have access to such purchase terms. Funds with loads are waived for plans administered by ICMA-RC. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

The Morningstar Ranking and Morningstar Rating, as well as statistics for alpha, beta, and standard deviation, (collectively, "Data"), are not available for the R7 or R9 share classes of the VT Vantagepoint Funds. Data provided is for the R5 share class of the VT Vantagepoint Funds, which has an expense ratio that is 0.09% higher than the R7 share class, and 0.19% higher than the R9 share class of the Funds.
