BNY Mellon Government Money Market Fund

Fund Objective / Approach

The fund seeks as high a level of current income as is consistent with the preservation of capital and the maintenance of liquidity.

The fund pursues its investment objective by investing only in government securities (i.e., securities issued or guaranteed as to principal and interest by the U.S. government or its agencies or instrumentalities, including those with floating or variable rates of interest), repurchase agreements collateralized solely by government securities and/or cash, and cash. The fund seeks to invest in securities that present minimal credit risk, based on BNY Mellon Investment Adviser's assessment of the issuer's or guarantor's credit quality and capacity to meet its financial obligations, which may include environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors as appropriate and applicable, among other factors. The fund is a government money market fund managed to meet the requirements of Rule 2A-7 under the Investment Company Act of 1940.

      Investors should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses of a money market fund carefully before investing. To obtain a prospectus, or summary prospectus, if available, that contains this and other information about the fund, contact your financial professional or visit dreyfus.com. Read the prospectus carefully before investing.

      Retail Prime and Tax-Exempt/Municipal 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. The fund may impose a fee upon the sale of your shares if determined in the best interests of the fund to do so because of market conditions, reduced liquidity or other factors.  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.

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

      ESG evaluation risk applies to all government/treasury money market funds except Dreyfus Government Securities Cash Management, Dreyfus Treasury Securities Cash Management, and Dreyfus Institutional Preferred Treasury Securities Money Market Fund. Where appropriate and as applicable, Dreyfus incorporates environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into its fundamental credit research process. Dreyfus may not consider ESG ratings or other ESG data or analysis in connection with every investment decision and may determine that other attributes of an investment outweigh ESG considerations when making an investment decision. ESG factors may not be determinative with respect to a given credit analysis or investment decision. Accordingly, a fund may invest in securities of a company/issuer with a negative ESG profile, and a fund may divest or not invest in a company/issuer with a positive ESG profile. In light of the fact that ESG data often lacks standardization, consistency and transparency, such data including ESG ratings for certain issuers/companies may not be available, complete or accurate.

      As a measure of current income, 7-day yield most closely reflects the fund's current income generating ability.

      1-Day Yield: the distribution factor for the prior business day multiplied by the number of days in the year.

      1-Day Yield Unsubsidized: reflects what the 1-Day Yield would have been absent of contractual and or voluntary expense waivers.

      1-Day Yield Subsidized: reflects expense fee waivers during the period. Without waivers, the yield would be reduced.

      7-Day Yield Unsubsidized: the Fund's previous 7 days of income dividend per share, annualized by dividing by the 7 days and multiplying by the number of days in the year, and shown as a percentage of the fund's current net asset value per share. This yield does not reflect contractual and or voluntary fee waivers.

      7-Day Yield Subsidized: the Fund's previous 7 days of income dividend per share, annualized by dividing by the 7 days and multiplying by the number of days in the year, and shown as a percentage of the fund's current net asset value per share. This yield reflects contractual and or voluntary fee waivers.

      30-Day Unsubsidized Yield: a net yield inclusive exclusive of any fee waivers or reimbursements, 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.

      30-Day Subsidized Yield: a net yield inclusive of any fee waivers or reimbursements, 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.

      WAM: A measure of the average effective maturity of all of the underlying money market instruments in the fund, weighted to reflect the relative percentage ownership of each instrument. WAM calculations allow for the maturities of certain securities with periodic interest rate resets to be shortened. Generally, for money market funds, WAM can be used primarily as a measure of relative sensitivity to interest rate changes.

      WAL: A measure of the average final maturity of all of the underlying money market instruments in the fund, weighted to reflect the relative percentage ownership of each instrument. Unlike WAM, WAL calculations do not allow maturities to be shortened for periodic interest rate resets. Accordingly, 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.
