I’m in the Brightstart plan. I want to move my funds into their MMF or Bank account as listed in the investment options. When I look at the investment results YTD for these options they show a 0% return. Does that mean they are not paying any interest? Thanks

Oops, you’re looking at the wrong column. The “zero” is for percentage change in value year-to-date, NOT the earnings.
Money market funds and CDs never change principal value — ie, you can’t LOSE principal in them.
