Household Mailing and E-Delivery

Each year, you are automatically sent an updated summary prospectus and annual and semi-annual reports for the Funds. You may also occasionally receive proxy statements for the Funds. In order to reduce the volume of mail you receive, when possible, only one copy of these documents may be sent to shareholders who are part of the same family and share the same household address. You may elect to receive these documents electronically in lieu of paper form by enrolling in e-delivery at mainstayinvestments.com/edelivery. If you would like to opt out of household-based mailings, please call toll free 800-MAINSTAY (624-6782).
