Saving for retirement?
Start with the number of years until you plan to retire or your current age, and we'll suggest a Vanguard Target Retirement Fund for you.
Each fund in this series seeks to manage stock market risk by gradually shifting its focus from stocks to bonds, becoming more conservative as you get closer to retirement.
Preparing for another adventure?
Consider how much risk you're willing to take with your investments, and choose the Vanguard LifeStrategy® Fund that most closely matches your comfort level and investment objective.
Each of these 4 funds has a set percentage of stocks and bonds and automatically maintains that percentage for you.
Already retired and looking for income?
If you need regular monthly payments from your investments but still want control of your money, consider Vanguard Managed Payout Fund.*
This fund is a fully diversified, all-in-one investment that comes with the low costs you'd expect from Vanguard.
Saving for college?
Want to cut back on the homework involved with deciding how to invest the money you're saving for college? An age-based portfolio in The Vanguard 529 College Savings Plan could be a good fit.
Based on your child's current age and how much risk you're willing to take, we'll show you which option might be good for you.

Investments in Target Retirement Funds are subject to the risks of their underlying funds. The year in the fund name refers to the approximate year (the target date) when an investor in the fund would retire and leave the workforce. The fund will gradually shift its emphasis from more aggressive investments to more conservative ones based on its target date. An investment in a Target Retirement Fund is not guaranteed at any time, including on or after the target date.
Each LifeStrategy Fund invests in 4 broadly diversified Vanguard funds and is subject to the risks associated with those underlying funds.
The Managed Payout Fund is not guaranteed to achieve its investment objectives, is subject to loss, and some of its distributions may be treated in part as a return of capital. The dollar amount of the fund's monthly cash distributions could go up or down substantially from one year to the next and over time. It is also possible for the fund to suffer substantial investment losses and simultaneously experience additional asset reductions as a result of its distributions to shareholders under its managed-distribution policy. An investment in the fund could lose money over short, intermediate, or even long periods of time because the fund allocates its assets worldwide across different asset classes and investments with specific risk and return characteristics. Diversification does not necessarily ensure a profit or protect against a loss in a declining market. The fund is proportionately subject to the risks associated with its underlying funds, which may invest in stocks (including stocks issued by REITs), bonds, cash, inflation-linked investments, commodity-linked investments, long/short market-neutral investments, and leveraged absolute return investments.
The Managed Payout Fund may not be appropriate for all investors. For example, depending on the time horizon, retirement income needs, and tax bracket, an investment in the Managed Payout Fund might not be appropriate for younger investors not currently in retirement, in IRAs or other tax-advantaged accounts for those investors under 59½, or for participants in employer-sponsored plans. Investors who hold the Managed Payout Fund within a tax-advantaged retirement account should consult their tax advisors to discuss tax consequences that could result if payments are distributed from their core account prior to age 59½ or if they plan to use the Managed Payout Fund, in whole or in part, to meet their required minimum distribution (RMD) obligations. Distributions from the Managed Payout Fund are unlikely to precisely match an investor's IRA RMD obligations. In addition, use of the Managed Payout Fund may be restricted in employer-sponsored plans by the terms of the governing plan documents and/or at the discretion of the plan administrator. Review the information carefully with your financial advisor before deciding whether the Managed Payout Fund is right for you.
