If you discontinue participation in the Plan, the Funds reserve the right to redeem your account involuntarily, upon 30 days written notice, if the account's net asset value is $1,000 or less. Involuntary redemptions will not be made if the value of shares in an account falls below the minimum amount solely because of a decline in the Fund's net asset value.
