Selling the Funds
The majority of the funds redeem their shares continuously and investors may sell their shares back to the funds on any business day. You may redeem all or any portion of your fund shares at the next determined NAV after your redemption order is received in good order by Guggenheim Investments. Redemption orders are subject to the funds’ transaction cutoff times.
The funds offer you the option to send redemption orders by:
Attn: Operations Department
P.O. Box 10839
Rockville, MD 20849-0839
Attn: Operations Department
805 King Farm Blvd
Rockville, MD 20850
If you send your redemption order by fax, you should call Guggenheim Investments Client Services at 800.820.0888 or 301.296.5100 to verify that your fax was received.
||800.820.0888 or 301.296.5100 (not available for retirement accounts)
To redeem shares from your taxable account, please use our Withdrawal Form found in the customer service forms area of the site. Please note that certain redemption requests may require a Medallion signature guarantee and therefore cannot be faxed.
You may only place a redemption order if you are the registered owner of the account or the registered owner has given Guggenheim Investments written authorization allowing you to request redemptions from the account. You will receive a confirmation number for your redemption; please retain it for your records.
IRA and Qualified Retirement Plan Account Redemptions
All redemptions from tax-qualified plans or IRAs must be requested be in writing. Please complete the IRA Distribution Form found in the customer service forms area of the site.
Redeeming shares that you hold through a tax-qualified plan or individual retirement account (IRA) may have adverse tax consequences. You should consult your tax advisor before redeeming shares and making distributions from your tax qualified plan or IRA. All distributions from tax-qualified plans and IRAs are subject to federal and state tax withholding rules.
Distributions from 403(b) accounts may require employer or plan administrator approval. Please see the 403(b)(7) Distribution Form found in the customer service forms area of the site.
Redeeming Shares by Checkwriting
If you hold shares directly, you may redeem shares from the U.S. Government Money Market by writing draft checks for $100 or more against your existing account. The drafts may be made payable to any person or entity and your account will continue to earn dividends until the draft clears. Draft checks may not be used for electronic funds transfers (i.e., electronic bill payments or ACH). Draft check writing is only available for non-retirement accounts.
If your balance in the U.S. Money Market Fund is insufficient to cover the amount of your draft, the transfer agent will automatically exchange sufficient funds from your other Guggenheim Investments Funds, starting with the Guggenheim Investments Fund with the highest account balance and then, if sufficient assets are not available in that fund, with the next Guggenheim Investments Funds (by decreasing order) until the entirety of the amount of the draft is covered. If no sufficient amount is available across all Guggenheim Investments Funds that you own, the draft will be rejected entirely. If your balance in the U.S. Goverment Money Market is insufficent to cover the amount of your draft, the transfer agent will automatically exchange sufficent funds from your other Guggenheim Investments fund(s), starting with the fund with the highest dollar balance and continue in decreasing order until the entire amount of the draft is covered. If a sufficient amount is not available across all Guggenheim Investments funds that you own, the draft will be rejected entirely.
Such an exchange will thus cause your shares in other Guggenheim Investments funds to be redeemed, which means that any contingent deferred sales charges (CDSC) (if applicable based on share class) due upon the redemption of such shares will be assessed. Such redemptions also will constitute taxable events (taxes would generally need to be paid on gains, for example). Also, such redemptions may be made at a time when you otherwise would not have wished to redeem these other funds’ shares. Accordingly, you should carefully consider your available balance in the funds and the consequences of your draft redemption, before using this feature.
You can establish draft writing privileges by completing a Check Signature Card, which you may obtain by calling 800.820.0888 or from the forms and applications area of the site. Because of the difficulty of determining in advance the exact value of your fund account, you may not use a draft to close your account.
There is no fee for draft writing privileges, but if payment on a draft is stopped at your request, or if the draft cannot be honored because of insufficient funds or other valid reasons, you may be charged a fee by the financial institution where you presented your draft for payment. Guggenheim Investments may also charge a $25 fee for a draft that cannot be honored due to insufficient funds. The Fund may suspend the draft writing privilege at any time.
Receiving Your Redemption Proceeds
Your redemption proceeds will normally be sent within seven(7) days of the transfer receipt of your request. For redemption orders that settle on a federal bank holiday, your redemption proceeds will be sent on the next business day following the holiday. Purchanses made by check or ACH (not wire), will be on hold for ten (10) business days before they may be redeemed.
All redemptions will be mailed to your address of record, sent electronically via ACH, or wired to your bank account of record. You may request overnight mail service for an additional fee. If redemption proceeds are transmitted by ACH or wire and the payee instructions are not valid, the proceeds may be re-invested into shares of the Fund as of the redemption date.
If you are setting up new alternate (check) payee instructions or new bank instructions (ACH or wire) the request must be in writing, include a signature guarantee, and may not be faxed. If you request to have your redemption proceeds sent to an address of record that has been changed within the previous ten (10) business days, a signature guarantee also is required and may not be faxed. For certain exceptions (e.g., accounts managed by financial professionals and requests to transfer between accounts), you may not be required to provide a signature guarantee.
Please contact Client Services at 800.820.0888 with any questions about your redemption request.
Low Balance Accounts
To offset the administrative expense of servicing small accounts, Guggenheim Investments may assess an administrative fee of $15 per year during periods where your account balance below the minimum required amount for any reason.
Guggenheim Investments may redeem your shares if the value of your account falls below the required minimum investment amount; however, Guggenheim Investments will provide you with at least thirty (30) days’ written notice to allow you sufficient time to add assets to your account and avoid the redemption of your shares.
Uncashed Check Policy
Any dividend, capital gain or partial redemption check that has remained outstanding for a period of ninety (90) days from the issuance date will be canceled and re-issued. If a re-issued check is not cashed within ninety (90) days, the check will be canceled and the proceeds will be deposited into the shareholder’s account as of the cancellation date.
For dividend and capital gain checks, the proceeds will be reinvested into the Fund. All subsequent distributions will also be reinvested into the Fund.
For partial redemption checks, the proceeds will be deposited into the Fund. Any full redemption check (one that reduces your account balance to $0.00) that is still outstanding for a period of ninety (90) days from the issuance date will be canceled and re-issued one time.
Any redemption check from a retirement account (e.g. IRA, Roth IRA, 403(b) accounts) that is still outstanding for a period of ninety (90) days from the issuance date will be canceled and re-issued one time.
For checks returned in the mail, the Fund will attempt to contact the client. If no contact is made, the check will be processed according to the procedures mentioned above.
Each exchange or redemption of fund shares may be a taxable event to you. For tax purposes, an exchange of shares into a different fund is treated the same as a redemption. You should consider the tax consequences of any redemption or exchange before making such a request. You should consider the tax consequences of redemptions if you invest in the funds through a tax-qualified retirement plan.

You could lose money by investing in the Fund. Although the Fund seeks to preserve the value of your investment at $1.00 per share, it cannot guarantee it will do so. An investment in the Fund is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. The Fund’s sponsor has no legal obligation to provide financial support to the Fund, and you should not expect that the sponsor will provide financial support to the Fund at any time.
