Fund like VFORX


I decided to take the free $76 from ING/Sharebuilder today and open an extra account there. The plus is that unless a regular Scottrade account you have the option to reinvest dividends instead of them paying out as cash into your account. They have a few families of NTF (no trading fee) funds that I could get into and then add a little extra to them each month. I'm looking for a pick similar to VFORX but offered by ING, American Century, Dreyfus, or PIMCO since those are the four families with no trading fees on their funds with Sharebuilder. Can anyone help me find a VFORX equivalent within their offerings? I'm banging my head trying to figure this out. Thanks!

For ING you'll need to mix the 2035 and 2045 funds (ISETX and ISJTX)

For American century you want the LIVESTRONG 2040 fund (ARDMX)

Dreyfus doesn't have a Target Date Retirement fund as far as I can see

For PIMCO you want the PIMCO RealRetirement 2040 fund (POFAX)

Some of the funds have different classes with slightly different fund symbols - you'll get the idea though
