Performance data shown represents past performance and is no guarantee of future results. Investment returns and principal value will fluctuate, so you may have a gain or loss when shares are sold. Current performance may be higher or lower than that quoted. See current yield and most recent month-end performance for Fidelity® Government Cash Reserves FDRXX.

You could lose money by investing in a money market 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 a bank account and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. Fidelity Investments and its affiliates, the fund’s sponsor, is not required to reimburse the fund for losses, and you should not expect that the sponsor will provide financial support to the fund at any time, including during periods of market stress. Fidelity's government and U.S. Treasury money market funds will not impose a fee upon the sale of your shares.

  • More information

    * Money market funds have different characteristics than bank sweep accounts and savings accounts. Read any fund's prospectus carefully. An important difference is that bank sweep products have FDIC protection, which guarantees principal and interest within limits; and money market funds and non-bank default sweep products do not. See more information about safeguarding your accounts. The Fidelity fund yield is the average amount earned by the fund after expenses over the past 7 days (per date indicated) and annualized. The comparison APY is the amount of total interest earned on a bank product in 1 year. Comparison is based on information available on each providers public website as of 7/5/2024 and is subject to change. Please carefully consider ALL fees, features and characteristics for each account carefully.
