(4) Employer and employee contributions are estimated each quarter from annual contribution rates based on data received from plan providers or plan sponsors. The data presented in the table above differs from data provided in filings prior to September 30, 2012, as the data above represents an estimate of the contributions for the entire AUM base, and the prior contributions data reported represented only a subset of members for whom we received salary data.
(5) Other factors affecting assets under management include estimated market movement, plan administrative fees, participant loans and hardship withdrawals, and timing differences.
