DESERET 401(K) PLAN
This summary plan description (benefits handbook), or SPD, outlines the
major provisions of the Deseret 401(k) Plan as of January 1, 2020.

KEY POINTS OF THE PLAN
The Deseret 401(k) Plan is a traditional safe harbor defined contribution
plan. You contribute a percentage of your income to your account and your
employer matches a percentage of your contributions.
 • You control how your contributions and your employer’s contributions are
   invested.
 • You’re fully vested in the value of your account. That means you own the
   money in your account.
 • You may borrow funds from your account and pay them back with interest.
 • If you’re married, your legal spouse is your automatic beneficiary.
 • For eligible employees hired on or after April 1, 2010, your employer may
   also make additional Employer Discretionary Retirement Contributions.

Investment options
The funds available under the plan provide
investment opportunities in significant segments
of the stock and bond markets. Available
investment options include mutual funds and
collective investment trusts (CITs).
Both mutual funds and CITs are made up of
pooled assets and have specific investment
objectives. They are alike in many ways, but have
some important differences. For instance, CITs
are privately held trusts with different regulatory

* The Specialty Income Preset Mix Asset Allocation Model (previously known as Current Income) has not been in existence for 10 years. Returns shown are since
 the model’s inception in May 2011.

Performance data represents past performance and is not a guarantee or prediction of future results.

Compared to higher rated securities, high-yield bond investment options are subject to greater risk, including the risk of default. A bond fund’s yield, share price,
and total return change daily and are based on changes in interest rates, market conditions, economic and political news, and the equity and maturity of its
investment. In general, bond prices fall when interest rates rise and vice versa.

Growth (increase in value over time or appreciation) and income (current income generation through dividends or interest payments) are investment strategies
that can be used, depending on risk tolerance, to create a balanced investment objective.

Time horizon, generally defined, is the time your money is expected to be invested before you need it for retirement income.

The preset mix asset allocation models have been programmed into the recordkeeping system for easy selection. Individual allocations are available in the
system, with or without the rebalancing feature, based on your individual risk tolerance.

Please consider the objectives, risk, fees, and expenses before investing. For important investment-related materials regarding the individual investment options,
such as the fund fact sheet or prospectus, please log into your personal account at www.dmba.com. From the DMBA home page, navigate to the Deseret 401(k)
