Seeks to realize over a period of years the highest yield consistent with investing in investment grade bonds.
Who Should Invest?
You may want to invest in the Bond Fund if you are seeking higher potential returns than money market funds and are willing to accept the price volatility of bonds with longer maturities, want to diversify your investments, are seeking an income mutual fund for an asset allocation program, or are retired or nearing retirement.
Type of Risk:
The risk that when interest rates increase, securities held by an Underlying Investment will decline in value. Long-term fixed income securities will normally have more price volatility than short-term securities because of the risk.
The risk that homeowners or consumers may repay loans before they are due, which may affect the yield of mortgage- or asset-backed securities related to such loans.
The risk that an issuer of a debt security might not make interest and principal payments on the security as they become due. If the issuer fails to pay interest, the income of an Underlying Investment investing in such debt security might be reduced, and if the issuer fails to repay the principal, the value of that security and of the Underlying Investment's shares might be reduced.
The risk that the fund manager's assessment of companies whose securities are held in the fund may prove incorrect, resulting in losses or poor performance, even in a rising market.
The risk that the fund manager may have difficulty selling securities the fund holds at the time it would like to sell and at the value the fund has placed on those securities.
The risk that the income from a fund's investments will decline because of falling market interest rates.

Period to View:
Investment return and principal value will fluctuate and your investment, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than its original cost. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Recent performance may be less than the figures shown. Obtain total returns current to the most recent month-end by calling our Mutual Funds Response Center at 800-447-4930.
Total returns are the compounded rate of change in value during a period of investment, including the value of shares acquired through reinvestment of all dividends and of all capital gain distributions for the period. They include all applicable fees and expenses, including: A maximum sales charge of 3.00% for Class A and Premier shares and maximum contingent deferred sales charges on Class B and Legacy Class B shares of 3.00% during year one, 2.75% in years two and three, 2.50% in year four, 2.00% in year five, 1.00% in year six, and 0.00% in year seven. Class B and Legacy Class B shares convert to Class A shares after 8 full years, unless the total value of a shareholder's account(s) is $100,000 or more, then these shares convert to Premier shares. Ten-year returns for Class B and Legacy Class B reflect the applicable conversion to Class A with no additional sales charge. NAV Total Return does not include any initial sales charge or contingent deferred sales charge for any shares and, if reflected, would reduce the performance quoted.
There is no sales charge or 12b-1 fee associated with Institutional Class shares. Class R-1, R-2, and R-3 shares may only be purchased for certain qualified retirement plans as set forth in the prospectus.
Class B shares and Legacy Class B shares are not available for purchase by any investor after 5/1/2015.
Effective for transactions occurring on or after April 1, 2017, State Farm VP Management Corp. will waive receipt of all sales charges disclosed in the Prospectus, and no sales charges disclosed in the Prospectus will apply to transactions occurring on or after April 1, 2017.
State Farm Investment Management Corp., the investment adviser for each fund, has voluntarily agreed to reimburse each fund for certain annual operating expenses. This agreement may be eliminated at any time.
1 The 30-day SEC yield is calculated based on the standardized formula set forth by the Securities and Exchange Commission for bond funds. The yield is calculated by dividing the net investment income per share earned during the period by the maximum offering price per share on the last day of the period. Subsidized yield figures reflect the dividends and interest earned during the 30-day period, after the deduction of the fund's expenses and includes any applicable waiver or reimbursement. Unsubsidized yield reflects what the SEC yield would be if the investment company were not waiving a portion of the Fund's expense ratio.
