Current performance may be higher or lower than the quoted past performance, which cannot guarantee future results. Investment return and yield will vary. The average annual total return figures include reinvested dividends.

Year-to-date figures for the money funds are not annualized and represent total return, which includes reinvested distributions. The yield quotation more closely reflects the current earnings of the money market fund than does the total return.

A method of calculating a money fund's yield by annualizing the fund's net investment income for the last seven days of each period divided by the fund's net asset value at the end of the period.

The gross expense ratio reflects the fund expenses as stated in the fee table of the fund's prospectus prior to the deduction of any waiver or reimbursement. The net expense ratio reflects fund expenses after the deduction of any waiver or reimbursement.  If a fund has an active contractual expense limitation, the expiration date is shown below the gross and net expense ratio values above.  Expense ratios are as of the most recent prospectus.

In an effort to maintain a zero or positive net yield, T. Rowe Price has voluntarily waived or reimbursed all or a portion of the management fee and operating expenses it is entitled to receive from the fund. The 7- day yield without waiver represents what the yield would have been if we were not waiving those fees.  In addition, the fund’s performance without the fee waiver or reimbursement would also have been lower. This voluntary waiver is in addition to any contractual expense ratio limitation in effect for the fund and may be amended or terminated at any time without prior notice. Please see the prospectus for more details.

How to Invest

Shares of the Variable Insurance Portfolios are designed to be offered to insurance company separate accounts established for the purpose of funding variable annuity and variable life insurance contracts. The annuity and life contract holders or participants are not the shareholders of the funds. Rather, the separate account of the insurance company is the shareholder. The variable annuity and variable life contracts are described in separate prospectuses issued by the insurance companies. The funds assume no responsibility for such prospectuses, or variable annuity or variable life contracts.

Shares of the funds are sold and redeemed without the imposition of any sales commissions or redemption charges. However, certain other charges may apply to annuity or life contracts. Those charges are disclosed in the insurance contract prospectus. Your ability to exchange from these funds into any other T. Rowe Price fund that serves as an investment option under your insurance contract is governed by the terms of that contract and the insurance contract prospectus, as well as the funds’ excessive and short-term trading policy described in this section.

Performance prior to this date may have been different if the current investment limitations had been in effect.
