Default Option: Target Date Fund
For less experienced investors and those who have neither the time nor inclination to actively monitor their investments, target date funds are a great option.

Target date funds are rebalanced on an on-going basis (typically quarterly) with the investment mix becoming slowly more conservative over time. 

As the planned retirement date draws closer, equity exposure is reduced and the amount invested in more conservative instruments, such as fixed income securities, increases.

With target date funds, participants simply select the fund whose year most closely matches their planned year of retirement.  It’s that easy!  So, even novice investors need not shy away from participating due to a lack of investment knowledge or tough decisions.

Given their simplicity and effectiveness, target date funds are the default option for participants who fail, or choose not to actively select an investment fund(s).  In this case, the participant is assumed to retire at age 65 and the plan assigns the fund that corresponds most closely to their year of retirement.
