If I was in your position I would go with the
2. Common Stock Index Investment Fund-invested in a stock index fund that tracks the S&P's 500 stock index

this is assuming that you are under 50 *G*

You mind remind your fiance that there are 2 kinds of risk. Volatility and Low Return. The risk of volatility is reduced over time. The risk of Low Return in increased over time. If he can move the funds once they are in the plan putting 20% or more
into the other funds might not be a bad idea, if you
can take advantage of down turns and move the money over to the Common stock fund.
