Strategy And Objective

The fund s investment objective is to seek a high level of total return consistent with its asset allocation until the approximate retirement year in the fund s name;thereafter, the fund will seek total return through a combination of current income and capital appreciation. The asset allocation of the fund will change over time. The fund is designed to provide diversification among different asset classes for investors with the approximate retirement year in the fund s name. MFS(Massachusetts Financial Services Company, the fund s investment adviser) invests substantially all of the fund s assets in other MFS mutual funds, referred to asunderlying funds. The underlying funds are selected following a two-stage asset allocation process. The first stage is a strategic asset allocation to determine the percentage of the fund s assets invested in the general asset classes MFS Lifetime 2055 Fund of (1) Bond Funds, (2) International Stock Funds, and (3) U.S. Stock Funds, as well as (4) Specialty Funds (underlying funds that have less traditional investment strategies that MFS believes provide diversification benefits when added to a portfolio consisting of stock and bond funds).The second stage involves the actual selection of underlying funds to represent the asset classes based on underlying fund classifications, historical risk, performance, and other factors. Within the stock fund allocations, MFS seeks to diversify by geography (by including domestic and international underlying funds), in terms of market capitalization (by including large, mid, and small capitalization underlying funds) and by style (by including both growth and value underlying funds).Within the bond fund allocation, MFS includes underlying funds with varying degrees of geographic, interest rate and credit exposure, including exposure to below investment grade quality debt instruments. MFS normally invests the underlying funds assets across different industries, sectors, countries, and regions, but MFS may invest a significant percentage of the underlying funds assets in issuers in a single industry, sector, country, or region.
