Investors should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of the Fund/Portfolio carefully before investing. For copies of our prospectus or summary prospectus, which contain this and other information, visit us online at www.abfunds.com or contact your AB representative. Please read the prospectus and/or summary prospectus carefully before investing.

Each fund is named for a “target date”—the approximate year when you expect to retire and start withdrawing from your account. Funds furthest from their target dates emphasize growth potential by investing almost entirely in equities. As investors move closer to—and into—retirement, the Funds automatically adjust to a more conservative asset mix. Investments in Multi-Manager Select Retirement Funds are not guaranteed against loss of principal: at any time, your account value can be more or less than the original amount contributed—including at the time of the fund’s target date. Also, investing in Multi-Manager Select Retirement Funds does not guarantee sufficient income in retirement.
