Yield and investment return fluctuate and past performance is no guarantee of future results. A money market fund is not insured or guaranteed by the FDIC or any other government agency.

Investors should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses of a mutual fund carefully before investing. Call your Dreyfus Cash Solutions representative or download from dreyfus.com a prospectus, or a summary prospectus, if available, that contains this and other information about the fund, and read it carefully before investing.

Government/Treasury Money Market Funds: 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 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.

Although the fund's board has no current intention to impose a fee upon the sale of shares or temporarily suspend redemptions if the fund's liquidity falls below certain levels, the board reserves the ability to do so after providing at least 60 days prior written notice to shareholders.

The fund's short-term corporate and asset- backed securities holdings involve credit and liquidity risks and risk of principal loss.

As a measure of current income, 7-day yield most closely reflects the fund's current income generating ability. SEC 30-day yield is based upon dividends per share from net investment income during the past 30 days, divided by the period ended maximum offering price per share and annualized. Restated yield may reflect the waiver of receipt of a portion of the management fee, and/or a reimbursement of fund expenses, by BNY Mellon Investment Adviser, Inc., which would have the effect of lowering the fund's expense ratio and generating a higher yield.

WAM: A measure of the average maturity of all of the underlying money market instruments in the fund, weighted to reflect the relative percentage ownership of each instrument, and taking into account applicable "maturity shortening" provisions provided by the Rule. Generally, for money market funds, WAM can be used primarily as a measure of relative sensitivity to interest rate changes. WAL: WAL is the WAM of the money market fund calculated without reference to the "maturity shortening" provisions of Rule 2a-7 permitted for purposes of calculating WAM. Because WAL does not reflect the rule's "maturity shortening" provisions, WAL will generally be higher than WAM.

Market Value NAV: Calculated based on available market quotations (except overnight securities which are valued at amortized cost) related to the Fund's securities at the close of business on the date stated. It is calculated to the nearest hundredth of a cent or (or $0.0001).

Daily Dividend Factor is a decimal representation of the amount of yield earned in one day.

Accumulated Dividend Factor is the decimal representation of the daily factors added up in anticipated of a monthly dividend payout.
