Investment Objective
Fidelity Freedom® Index Income Fund seeks high current income and, as a secondary objective, capital appreciation.
Fee Table
The following table describes the fees and expenses that may be incurred when you buy, hold, and sell shares of the fund. In addition to the fees and expenses described below, your broker may also require you to pay brokerage commissions on purchases and sales of certain share classes of the fund.
 
Shareholder fees
(fees paid directly from your investment)
None
Annual Operating Expenses
(expenses that you pay each year as a % of the value of your investment)
Management fee
0.12%   
Distribution and/or Service (12b-1) fees
None   
Other expenses
0.00%   
Total annual operating expenses
0.12%   
This example helps compare the cost of investing in the fund with the cost of investing in other funds.

Let's say, hypothetically, that the annual return for shares of the fund is 5% and that the fees and the annual operating expenses for shares of the fund are exactly as described in the fee table. This example illustrates the effect of fees and expenses, but is not meant to suggest actual or expected fees and expenses or returns, all of which may vary. For every $10,000 you invested, here's how much you would pay in total expenses if you sell all of your shares at the end of each time period indicated:

Portfolio Turnover
 
The fund will not incur transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells shares of underlying Fidelity® funds (or "turns over" its portfolio), but it could incur transaction costs if it were to buy and sell other types of securities directly. If the fund were to buy and sell other types of securities directly, a higher portfolio turnover rate could indicate higher transaction costs and could result in higher taxes when fund shares are held in a taxable account. Such costs, if incurred, would not be reflected in annual operating expenses or in the example and would affect the fund's performance. During the most recent fiscal year, the fund's portfolio turnover rate was 22% of the average value of its portfolio.
Principal Investment Strategies
  • Investing primarily in a combination of Fidelity® U.S. equity funds, international equity funds, bond funds, and short-term funds (underlying Fidelity® funds), each of which (excluding any money market fund) seeks to provide investment results that correspond to the total return of a specific index.
  • Allocating assets according to a stable asset allocation strategy (approximately 11% in U.S. equity funds, 8% in international equity funds, 43% in U.S. investment grade bond funds, 5% in international bond funds, 3% in long-term treasury bond funds, 20% in short-term inflation-protected bond funds, and 10% in short-term funds). Fidelity Management & Research Company LLC (FMR) (the Adviser) may modify the fund's asset allocations from time to time when in the interests of shareholders.
  • Buying and selling futures contracts (both long and short positions) in an effort to manage cash flows efficiently, remain fully invested, or facilitate asset allocation.
  • Using an asset allocation among underlying Fidelity® U.S. equity funds, international equity funds, bond funds, short-term funds, and futures according to a stable asset allocation of approximately:
U.S. Equity Funds 11%
International Equity Funds 8%
International Bond Funds 5%
U.S. Investment Grade Bond Funds 43%
Long-Term Treasury Bond Funds 3%
Long-Term Inflation-Protected Bond Funds 0%
Short-Term Inflation-Protected Bond Funds 20%
Short-Term Funds 10%
* The Adviser may change these percentages over time. The allocation percentages may not add to 100% due to rounding.
Principal Investment Risks
Shareholders should consider that no target date fund is intended as a complete retirement program and there is no guarantee that any single fund will provide sufficient retirement income at or through your retirement. The fund's share price fluctuates, which means you could lose money by investing in the fund, including losses near, at or after the target retirement date.
  • Asset Allocation Risk.
The fund is subject to risks resulting from the Adviser's asset allocation decisions. The selection of underlying funds and the allocation of the fund's assets among various asset classes could cause the fund to lose value or its results to lag relevant benchmarks or other funds with similar objectives.
  • Investing in Other Funds.
The fund bears all risks of investment strategies employed by the underlying funds, including the risk that the underlying funds will not meet their investment objectives.
  • Stock Market Volatility.
Stock markets are volatile and can decline significantly in response to adverse issuer, political, regulatory, market, or economic developments. Different parts of the market, including different market sectors, and different types of securities can react differently to these developments.
  • Interest Rate Changes.
Interest rate increases can cause the price of a debt security to decrease.
  • Foreign Exposure.
Foreign markets can be more volatile than the U.S. market due to increased risks of adverse issuer, political, regulatory, market, or economic developments and can perform differently from the U.S. market. The extent of economic development; political stability; market depth, infrastructure, and capitalization; and regulatory oversight can be less than in more developed markets. Emerging markets typically have less established legal, accounting and financial reporting systems than those in more developed markets, which may reduce the scope or quality of financial information available to investors. Emerging markets can be subject to greater social, economic, regulatory, and political uncertainties and can be extremely volatile. Foreign exchange rates also can be extremely volatile.
  • Industry Exposure.
Market conditions, interest rates, and economic, regulatory, or financial developments could significantly affect a single industry or group of related industries.
  • Prepayment.
The ability of an issuer of a debt security to repay principal prior to a security's maturity can cause greater price volatility if interest rates change.
  • Issuer-Specific Changes.
The value of an individual security or particular type of security can be more volatile than, and can perform differently from, the market as a whole.
Changes in the financial condition of an issuer or counterparty (e.g., broker-dealer or other borrower in a securities lending transaction) can increase the risk of default by an issuer or counterparty, which can affect a security's or instrument's value or result in delays in recovering securities and/or capital from a counterparty.
A decline in the credit quality of an issuer or a provider of credit support or a maturity-shortening structure for a security can cause the price of a security to decrease.
  • Correlation to Index.
The performance of an underlying index fund and its index may vary somewhat due to factors such as fees and expenses of the underlying fund, transaction costs, sample selection, regulatory restrictions, and timing differences associated with additions to and deletions from the index. Errors in the construction or calculation of the index may occur from time to time and may not be identified and corrected for some period of time, which may have an adverse impact on an underlying fund and its shareholders.
  • Passive Management Risk.
Some of the underlying funds in which the fund invests are managed with a passive investment strategy, attempting to track the performance of an unmanaged index of securities, regardless of the current or projected performance of an underlying fund's index or of the actual securities included in the index. This differs from an actively managed fund, which typically seeks to outperform a benchmark index. As a result, the performance of these underlying funds could be lower than actively managed funds that may shift their portfolio assets to take advantage of market opportunities or lessen the impact of a market decline or a decline in the value of one or more issuers. An underlying index fund may be concentrated to approximately the same extent that its index concentrates in the securities of issuers in a particular industry or group of industries.
  • Leverage Risk.
Leverage can increase market exposure, magnify investment risks, and cause losses to be realized more quickly.
  • Inflation-Protected Debt Exposure.
Increases in real interest rates can cause the price of inflation-protected debt securities to decrease. Interest payments on inflation-protected debt securities can be unpredictable.
  • Securities Lending Risk.
Securities lending involves the risk that the borrower may fail to return the securities loaned in a timely manner or at all. If the borrower defaults on its obligation to return the securities loaned because of insolvency or other reasons, an underlying fund could experience delays and costs in recovering the securities loaned or in gaining access to the collateral.
An investment in the fund is not a deposit of a bank and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. You could lose money by investing in the fund.
 
Performance
The following information is intended to help you understand the risks of investing in the fund.
The information illustrates the changes in the performance of the fund's shares from year to year and compares the performance of the fund's shares to the performance of a securities market index and a hypothetical composite of market indexes over various periods of time. The indexes have characteristics relevant to the fund's investment strategies. Index descriptions appear in the "Additional Index Information" section of the prospectus. Past performance (before and after taxes) is not an indication of future performance.

Shares of the fund are not eligible for purchase by registered investment companies or business development companies to the extent such acquisition is in reliance on Rule 12d1-4 under the Investment Company Act of 1940.
The price to buy one share is its net asset value per share (NAV). Shares will be bought at the NAV next calculated after an order is received in proper form.
The price to sell one share is its NAV. Shares will be sold at the NAV next calculated after an order is received in proper form.
The fund is open for business each day the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) is open.
There is no purchase minimum for shares of the fund offered in this prospectus.
Tax Information
Distributions you receive from the fund are subject to federal income tax and generally will be taxed as ordinary income or capital gains, and may also be subject to state or local taxes, unless you are investing through a tax-advantaged retirement account (in which case you may be taxed later, upon withdrawal of your investment from such account).
Payments to Broker-Dealers and Other Financial Intermediaries
The fund, the Adviser, Fidelity Distributors Company LLC (FDC), and/or their affiliates may pay intermediaries, which may include banks, broker-dealers, retirement plan sponsors, administrators, or service-providers (who may be affiliated with the Adviser or FDC), for the sale of fund shares and related services. These payments may create a conflict of interest by influencing your intermediary and your investment professional to recommend the fund over another investment. Ask your investment professional or visit your intermediary's web site for more information.
 
Fund Summary

Fidelity Freedom® Index 2005 Fund
/Investor 
 
Investment Objective
 
Fidelity Freedom® Index 2005 Fund seeks high total return until its target retirement date. Thereafter the fund's objective will be to seek high current income and, as a secondary objective, capital appreciation.
Fee Table
The following table describes the fees and expenses that may be incurred when you buy, hold, and sell shares of the fund. In addition to the fees and expenses described below, your broker may also require you to pay brokerage commissions on purchases and sales of certain share classes of the fund.

Portfolio Turnover
 
The fund will not incur transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells shares of underlying Fidelity® funds (or "turns over" its portfolio), but it could incur transaction costs if it were to buy and sell other types of securities directly. If the fund were to buy and sell other types of securities directly, a higher portfolio turnover rate could indicate higher transaction costs and could result in higher taxes when fund shares are held in a taxable account. Such costs, if incurred, would not be reflected in annual operating expenses or in the example and would affect the fund's performance. During the most recent fiscal year, the fund's portfolio turnover rate was 28% of the average value of its portfolio.
Principal Investment Strategies
  • Investing primarily in a combination of Fidelity® U.S. equity funds, international equity funds, bond funds, and short-term funds (underlying Fidelity® funds), each of which (excluding any money market fund) seeks to provide investment results that correspond to the total return of a specific index.
  • Allocating assets according to an asset allocation strategy shown in the glide path below that adjusts over time until it reaches an allocation similar to that of the Fidelity Freedom® Index Income Fund, approximately 10 to 19 years after the year 2005. Fidelity Management & Research Company LLC (FMR) (the Adviser) may modify the fund's asset allocations from time to time when in the interests of shareholders.
  • The asset allocation shown in the glide path depicts the allocation to U.S. equity funds, international equity funds, bond funds (including U.S. investment grade bond, international bond, inflation-protected bond, and long-term treasury bond), and short-term funds.
  • Buying and selling futures contracts (both long and short positions) in an effort to manage cash flows efficiently, remain fully invested, or facilitate asset allocation.
  • The Adviser, under normal market conditions, will make investments that are consistent with seeking high total return for several years beyond the fund's target retirement date in an effort to achieve the fund's overall investment objective.
  • Using an asset allocation among underlying Fidelity® funds and futures as of April 1, 2023, of approximately:
U.S. Equity Funds 12%
International Equity Funds 8%
International Bond Funds 5%
U.S. Investment Grade Bond Funds 43%
Long-Term Treasury Bond Funds 3%
Long-Term Inflation-Protected Bond Funds 0%
Short-Term Inflation-Protected Bond Funds 19%
Short-Term Funds 10%
* The Adviser may change these percentages over time. The allocation percentages may not add to 100% due to rounding.
  • Designed for investors who retired in or within a few years of 2005 (target retirement date) at or around age 65.
When the asset allocation of a fund matches Fidelity Freedom® Index Income Fund's asset allocation (approximately 10 to 19 years after the year indicated in the fund's name), the Board of Trustees may combine the fund with Fidelity Freedom® Index Income Fund, without shareholder approval, and the fund's shareholders will become shareholders of Fidelity Freedom® Index Income Fund.
Principal Investment Risks
Shareholders should consider that no target date fund is intended as a complete retirement program and there is no guarantee that any single fund will provide sufficient retirement income at or through your retirement. The fund's share price fluctuates, which means you could lose money by investing in the fund, including losses near, at or after the target retirement date.
  • Asset Allocation Risk.
The fund is subject to risks resulting from the Adviser's asset allocation decisions. The selection of underlying funds and the allocation of the fund's assets among various asset classes could cause the fund to lose value or its results to lag relevant benchmarks or other funds with similar objectives.
  • Investing in Other Funds.
The fund bears all risks of investment strategies employed by the underlying funds, including the risk that the underlying funds will not meet their investment objectives.
  • Stock Market Volatility.
The Adviser will continue to invest the fund's assets in equity funds in the years following the fund's target retirement date in an effort to achieve the fund's overall investment objective. Stock markets are volatile and can decline significantly in response to adverse issuer, political, regulatory, market, or economic developments. Different parts of the market, including different market sectors, and different types of securities can react differently to these developments.
  • Interest Rate Changes.
Interest rate increases can cause the price of a debt security to decrease.
  • Foreign Exposure.
Foreign markets can be more volatile than the U.S. market due to increased risks of adverse issuer, political, regulatory, market, or economic developments and can perform differently from the U.S. market.

Shares of the fund are not eligible for purchase by registered investment companies or business development companies to the extent such acquisition is in reliance on Rule 12d1-4 under the Investment Company Act of 1940.
The price to buy one share is its net asset value per share (NAV). Shares will be bought at the NAV next calculated after an order is received in proper form.
The price to sell one share is its NAV. Shares will be sold at the NAV next calculated after an order is received in proper form.
The fund is open for business each day the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) is open.
There is no purchase minimum for shares of the fund offered in this prospectus.
Tax Information
Distributions you receive from the fund are subject to federal income tax and generally will be taxed as ordinary income or capital gains, and may also be subject to state or local taxes, unless you are investing through a tax-advantaged retirement account (in which case you may be taxed later, upon withdrawal of your investment from such account).
Payments to Broker-Dealers and Other Financial Intermediaries
The fund, the Adviser, Fidelity Distributors Company LLC (FDC), and/or their affiliates may pay intermediaries, which may include banks, broker-dealers, retirement plan sponsors, administrators, or service-providers (who may be affiliated with the Adviser or FDC), for the sale of fund shares and related services. These payments may create a conflict of interest by influencing your intermediary and your investment professional to recommend the fund over another investment. Ask your investment professional or visit your intermediary's web site for more information.
 
Fund Summary
Fund/Class:
Fidelity Freedom® Index 2010 Fund
/Investor 
 
Investment Objective
 
Fidelity Freedom® Index 2010 Fund seeks high total return until its target retirement date. Thereafter the fund's objective will be to seek high current income and, as a secondary objective, capital appreciation.
Fee Table
The following table describes the fees and expenses that may be incurred when you buy, hold, and sell shares of the fund. In addition to the fees and expenses described below, your broker may also require you to pay brokerage commissions on purchases and sales of certain share classes of the fund.
 
 
Shareholder fees
(fees paid directly from your investment)
None
 
Annual Operating Expenses
(expenses that you pay each year as a % of the value of your investment)
Management fee

This example helps compare the cost of investing in the fund with the cost of investing in other funds.

Let's say, hypothetically, that the annual return for shares of the fund is 5% and that the fees and the annual operating expenses for shares of the fund are exactly as described in the fee table. This example illustrates the effect of fees and expenses, but is not meant to suggest actual or expected fees and expenses or returns, all of which may vary. For every $10,000 you invested, here's how much you would pay in total expenses if you sell all of your shares at the end of each time period indicated:

Portfolio Turnover
 
The fund will not incur transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells shares of underlying Fidelity® funds (or "turns over" its portfolio), but it could incur transaction costs if it were to buy and sell other types of securities directly. If the fund were to buy and sell other types of securities directly, a higher portfolio turnover rate could indicate higher transaction costs and could result in higher taxes when fund shares are held in a taxable account. Such costs, if incurred, would not be reflected in annual operating expenses or in the example and would affect the fund's performance. During the most recent fiscal year, the fund's portfolio turnover rate was 26% of the average value of its portfolio.
Principal Investment Strategies
  • Investing primarily in a combination of Fidelity® U.S. equity funds, international equity funds, bond funds, and short-term funds (underlying Fidelity® funds), each of which (excluding any money market fund) seeks to provide investment results that correspond to the total return of a specific index.
  • Allocating assets according to an asset allocation strategy shown in the glide path below that adjusts over time until it reaches an allocation similar to that of the Fidelity Freedom® Index Income Fund, approximately 10 to 19 years after the year 2010. Fidelity Management & Research Company LLC (FMR) (the Adviser) may modify the fund's asset allocations from time to time when in the interests of shareholders.
  • The asset allocation shown in the glide path depicts the allocation to U.S. equity funds, international equity funds, bond funds (including U.S. investment grade bond, international bond, inflation-protected bond, and long-term treasury bond), and short-term funds.
  • Buying and selling futures contracts (both long and short positions) in an effort to manage cash flows efficiently, remain fully invested, or facilitate asset allocation.
  • The Adviser, under normal market conditions, will make investments that are consistent with seeking high total return for several years beyond the fund's target retirement date in an effort to achieve the fund's overall investment objective.
  • Using an asset allocation among underlying Fidelity® funds and futures as of April 1, 2023, of approximately:
U.S. Equity Funds 17%
International Equity Funds 11%
International Bond Funds 5%
U.S. Investment Grade Bond Funds 39%
Long-Term Treasury Bond Funds 3%
Long-Term Inflation-Protected Bond Funds 3%
Short-Term Inflation-Protected Bond Funds 14%
Short-Term Funds 7%
* The Adviser may change these percentages over time. The allocation percentages may not add to 100% due to rounding.
  • Designed for investors who retired in or within a few years of 2010 (target retirement date) at or around age 65.
When the asset allocation of a fund matches Fidelity Freedom® Index Income Fund's asset allocation (approximately 10 to 19 years after the year indicated in the fund's name), the Board of Trustees may combine the fund with Fidelity Freedom® Index Income Fund, without shareholder approval, and the fund's shareholders will become shareholders of Fidelity Freedom® Index Income Fund.
Principal Investment Risks
Shareholders should consider that no target date fund is intended as a complete retirement program and there is no guarantee that any single fund will provide sufficient retirement income at or through your retirement. The fund's share price fluctuates, which means you could lose money by investing in the fund, including losses near, at or after the target retirement date.
  • Asset Allocation Risk.
The fund is subject to risks resulting from the Adviser's asset allocation decisions. The selection of underlying funds and the allocation of the fund's assets among various asset classes could cause the fund to lose value or its results to lag relevant benchmarks or other funds with similar objectives.
  • Investing in Other Funds.
The fund bears all risks of investment strategies employed by the underlying funds, including the risk that the underlying funds will not meet their investment objectives.
  • Stock Market Volatility.
The Adviser will continue to invest the fund's assets in equity funds in the years following the fund's target retirement date in an effort to achieve the fund's overall investment objective. Stock markets are volatile and can decline significantly in response to adverse issuer, political, regulatory, market, or economic developments. Different parts of the market, including different market sectors, and different types of securities can react differently to these developments.
  • Interest Rate Changes.
Interest rate increases can cause the price of a debt security to decrease.
  • Foreign Exposure.
Foreign markets, particularly emerging markets, can be more volatile than the U.S. market due to increased risks of adverse issuer, political, regulatory, market, or economic developments and can perform differently from the U.S. market. The extent of economic development; political stability; market depth, infrastructure, and capitalization; and regulatory oversight can be less than in more developed markets. Emerging markets typically have less established legal, accounting and financial reporting systems than those in more developed markets, which may reduce the scope or quality of financial information available to investors. Emerging markets can be subject to greater social, economic, regulatory, and political uncertainties and can be extremely volatile. Foreign exchange rates also can be extremely volatile.
  • Industry Exposure.
Market conditions, interest rates, and economic, regulatory, or financial developments could significantly affect a single industry or group of related industries.
  • Prepayment.
The ability of an issuer of a debt security to repay principal prior to a security's maturity can cause greater price volatility if interest rates change.
  • Issuer-Specific Changes.
The value of an individual security or particular type of security can be more volatile than, and can perform differently from, the market as a whole.
Changes in the financial condition of an issuer or counterparty (e.g., broker-dealer or other borrower in a securities lending transaction) can increase the risk of default by an issuer or counterparty, which can affect a security's or instrument's value or result in delays in recovering securities and/or capital from a counterparty.
A decline in the credit quality of an issuer or a provider of credit support or a maturity-shortening structure for a security can cause the price of a security to decrease.
  • Correlation to Index.
The performance of an underlying index fund and its index may vary somewhat due to factors such as fees and expenses of the underlying fund, transaction costs, sample selection, regulatory restrictions, and timing differences associated with additions to and deletions from the index. Errors in the construction or calculation of the index may occur from time to time and may not be identified and corrected for some period of time, which may have an adverse impact on an underlying fund and its shareholders.
  • Passive Management Risk.
Some of the underlying funds in which the fund invests are managed with a passive investment strategy, attempting to track the performance of an unmanaged index of securities, regardless of the current or projected performance of an underlying fund's index or of the actual securities included in the index. This differs from an actively managed fund, which typically seeks to outperform a benchmark index. As a result, the performance of these underlying funds could be lower than actively managed funds that may shift their portfolio assets to take advantage of market opportunities or lessen the impact of a market decline or a decline in the value of one or more issuers. An underlying index fund may be concentrated to approximately the same extent that its index concentrates in the securities of issuers in a particular industry or group of industries.
  • Leverage Risk.
Leverage can increase market exposure, magnify investment risks, and cause losses to be realized more quickly.
  • Inflation-Protected Debt Exposure.
Increases in real interest rates can cause the price of inflation-protected debt securities to decrease. Interest payments on inflation-protected debt securities can be unpredictable.
  • Securities Lending Risk.
Securities lending involves the risk that the borrower may fail to return the securities loaned in a timely manner or at all. If the borrower defaults on its obligation to return the securities loaned because of insolvency or other reasons, an underlying fund could experience delays and costs in recovering the securities loaned or in gaining access to the collateral.
An investment in the fund is not a deposit of a bank and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. You could lose money by investing in the fund.

Shares of the fund are not eligible for purchase by registered investment companies or business development companies to the extent such acquisition is in reliance on Rule 12d1-4 under the Investment Company Act of 1940.
The price to buy one share is its net asset value per share (NAV). Shares will be bought at the NAV next calculated after an order is received in proper form.
The price to sell one share is its NAV. Shares will be sold at the NAV next calculated after an order is received in proper form.
The fund is open for business each day the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) is open.
There is no purchase minimum for shares of the fund offered in this prospectus.
Tax Information
Distributions you receive from the fund are subject to federal income tax and generally will be taxed as ordinary income or capital gains, and may also be subject to state or local taxes, unless you are investing through a tax-advantaged retirement account (in which case you may be taxed later, upon withdrawal of your investment from such account).
Payments to Broker-Dealers and Other Financial Intermediaries
The fund, the Adviser, Fidelity Distributors Company LLC (FDC), and/or their affiliates may pay intermediaries, which may include banks, broker-dealers, retirement plan sponsors, administrators, or service-providers (who may be affiliated with the Adviser or FDC), for the sale of fund shares and related services. These payments may create a conflict of interest by influencing your intermediary and your investment professional to recommend the fund over another investment. Ask your investment professional or visit your intermediary's web site for more information.
 
Fund Summary
Fund/Class:
Fidelity Freedom® Index 2020 Fund
/Investor 
 
Investment Objective
 
Fidelity Freedom® Index 2020 Fund seeks high total return until its target retirement date. Thereafter the fund's objective will be to seek high current income and, as a secondary objective, capital appreciation.
Fee Table
The following table describes the fees and expenses that may be incurred when you buy, hold, and sell shares of the fund. In addition to the fees and expenses described below, your broker may also require you to pay brokerage commissions on purchases and sales of certain share classes of the fund.
 
 
Shareholder fees
(fees paid directly from your investment)
None
 
Annual Operating Expenses

This example helps compare the cost of investing in the fund with the cost of investing in other funds.

Let's say, hypothetically, that the annual return for shares of the fund is 5% and that the fees and the annual operating expenses for shares of the fund are exactly as described in the fee table. This example illustrates the effect of fees and expenses, but is not meant to suggest actual or expected fees and expenses or returns, all of which may vary. For every $10,000 you invested, here's how much you would pay in total expenses if you sell all of your shares at the end of each time period indicated:

Portfolio Turnover
 
The fund will not incur transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells shares of underlying Fidelity® funds (or "turns over" its portfolio), but it could incur transaction costs if it were to buy and sell other types of securities directly. If the fund were to buy and sell other types of securities directly, a higher portfolio turnover rate could indicate higher transaction costs and could result in higher taxes when fund shares are held in a taxable account. Such costs, if incurred, would not be reflected in annual operating expenses or in the example and would affect the fund's performance. During the most recent fiscal year, the fund's portfolio turnover rate was 21% of the average value of its portfolio.
Principal Investment Strategies
  • Investing primarily in a combination of Fidelity® U.S. equity funds, international equity funds, bond funds, and short-term funds (underlying Fidelity® funds), each of which (excluding any money market fund) seeks to provide investment results that correspond to the total return of a specific index.
  • Allocating assets according to an asset allocation strategy shown in the glide path below that adjusts over time until it reaches an allocation similar to that of the Fidelity Freedom® Index Income Fund, approximately 10 to 19 years after the year 2020. Fidelity Management & Research Company LLC (FMR) (the Adviser) may modify the fund's asset allocations from time to time when in the interests of shareholders.
  • The asset allocation shown in the glide path depicts the allocation to U.S. equity funds, international equity funds, bond funds (including U.S. investment grade bond, international bond, inflation-protected bond, and long-term treasury bond), and short-term funds.
  • Buying and selling futures contracts (both long and short positions) in an effort to manage cash flows efficiently, remain fully invested, or facilitate asset allocation.
  • The Adviser, under normal market conditions, will make investments that are consistent with seeking high total return for several years beyond the fund's target retirement date in an effort to achieve the fund's overall investment objective.
  • Using an asset allocation among underlying Fidelity® funds and futures as of April 1, 2023, of approximately:
U.S. Equity Funds 28%
International Equity Funds 19%
International Bond Funds 5%
U.S. Investment Grade Bond Funds 32%
Long-Term Treasury Bond Funds 4%
Long-Term Inflation-Protected Bond Funds 8%
Short-Term Inflation-Protected Bond Funds 3%
Short-Term Funds 2%
* The Adviser may change these percentages over time. The allocation percentages may not add to 100% due to rounding.
  • Designed for investors who retired in or within a few years of 2020 (target retirement date) at or around age 65.
When the asset allocation of a fund matches Fidelity Freedom® Index Income Fund's asset allocation (approximately 10 to 19 years after the year indicated in the fund's name), the Board of Trustees may combine the fund with Fidelity Freedom® Index Income Fund, without shareholder approval, and the fund's shareholders will become shareholders of Fidelity Freedom® Index Income Fund.
Principal Investment Risks
Shareholders should consider that no target date fund is intended as a complete retirement program and there is no guarantee that any single fund will provide sufficient retirement income at or through your retirement. The fund's share price fluctuates, which means you could lose money by investing in the fund, including losses near, at or after the target retirement date.
  • Asset Allocation Risk.
The fund is subject to risks resulting from the Adviser's asset allocation decisions. The selection of underlying funds and the allocation of the fund's assets among various asset classes could cause the fund to lose value or its results to lag relevant benchmarks or other funds with similar objectives.
  • Investing in Other Funds.
The fund bears all risks of investment strategies employed by the underlying funds, including the risk that the underlying funds will not meet their investment objectives.
  • Stock Market Volatility.
The Adviser will continue to invest the fund's assets in equity funds in the years following the fund's target retirement date in an effort to achieve the fund's overall investment objective. Stock markets are volatile and can decline significantly in response to adverse issuer, political, regulatory, market, or economic developments. Different parts of the market, including different market sectors, and different types of securities can react differently to these developments.
  • Interest Rate Changes.
Interest rate increases can cause the price of a debt security to decrease.
  • Foreign Exposure.
Foreign markets, particularly emerging markets, can be more volatile than the U.S. market due to increased risks of adverse issuer, political, regulatory, market, or economic developments and can perform differently from the U.S. market. The extent of economic development; political stability; market depth, infrastructure, and capitalization; and regulatory oversight can be less than in more developed markets. Emerging markets typically have less established legal, accounting and financial reporting systems than those in more developed markets, which may reduce the scope or quality of financial information available to investors. Emerging markets can be subject to greater social, economic, regulatory, and political uncertainties and can be extremely volatile. Foreign exchange rates also can be extremely volatile.
  • Industry Exposure.
Market conditions, interest rates, and economic, regulatory, or financial developments could significantly affect a single industry or group of related industries.
  • Prepayment.
The ability of an issuer of a debt security to repay principal prior to a security's maturity can cause greater price volatility if interest rates change.
  • Issuer-Specific Changes.
The value of an individual security or particular type of security can be more volatile than, and can perform differently from, the market as a whole.
Changes in the financial condition of an issuer or counterparty (e.g., broker-dealer or other borrower in a securities lending transaction) can increase the risk of default by an issuer or counterparty, which can affect a security's or instrument's value or result in delays in recovering securities and/or capital from a counterparty.
A decline in the credit quality of an issuer or a provider of credit support or a maturity-shortening structure for a security can cause the price of a security to decrease.
  • Correlation to Index.
The performance of an underlying index fund and its index may vary somewhat due to factors such as fees and expenses of the underlying fund, transaction costs, sample selection, regulatory restrictions, and timing differences associated with additions to and deletions from the index. Errors in the construction or calculation of the index may occur from time to time and may not be identified and corrected for some period of time, which may have an adverse impact on an underlying fund and its shareholders.
  • Passive Management Risk.
Some of the underlying funds in which the fund invests are managed with a passive investment strategy, attempting to track the performance of an unmanaged index of securities, regardless of the current or projected performance of an underlying fund's index or of the actual securities included in the index. This differs from an actively managed fund, which typically seeks to outperform a benchmark index. As a result, the performance of these underlying funds could be lower than actively managed funds that may shift their portfolio assets to take advantage of market opportunities or lessen the impact of a market decline or a decline in the value of one or more issuers. An underlying index fund may be concentrated to approximately the same extent that its index concentrates in the securities of issuers in a particular industry or group of industries.
  • Leverage Risk.
Leverage can increase market exposure, magnify investment risks, and cause losses to be realized more quickly.
  • Inflation-Protected Debt Exposure.
Increases in real interest rates can cause the price of inflation-protected debt securities to decrease. Interest payments on inflation-protected debt securities can be unpredictable.
  • Securities Lending Risk.
Securities lending involves the risk that the borrower may fail to return the securities loaned in a timely manner or at all. If the borrower defaults on its obligation to return the securities loaned because of insolvency or other reasons, an underlying fund could experience delays and costs in recovering the securities loaned or in gaining access to the collateral.
An investment in the fund is not a deposit of a bank and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. You could lose money by investing in the fund.
 
Performance
The following information is intended to help you understand the risks of investing in the fund.
The information illustrates the changes in the performance of the fund's shares from year to year and compares the performance of the fund's shares to the performance of a securities market index and a hypothetical composite of market indexes over various periods of time. The indexes have characteristics relevant to the fund's investment strategies. Index descriptions appear in the "Additional Index Information" section of the prospectus. Past performance (before and after taxes) is not an indication of future performance.

Shares of the fund are not eligible for purchase by registered investment companies or business development companies to the extent such acquisition is in reliance on Rule 12d1-4 under the Investment Company Act of 1940.
The price to buy one share is its net asset value per share (NAV). Shares will be bought at the NAV next calculated after an order is received in proper form.
The price to sell one share is its NAV. Shares will be sold at the NAV next calculated after an order is received in proper form.
The fund is open for business each day the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) is open.
There is no purchase minimum for shares of the fund offered in this prospectus.
Tax Information
Distributions you receive from the fund are subject to federal income tax and generally will be taxed as ordinary income or capital gains, and may also be subject to state or local taxes, unless you are investing through a tax-advantaged retirement account (in which case you may be taxed later, upon withdrawal of your investment from such account).
Payments to Broker-Dealers and Other Financial Intermediaries
The fund, the Adviser, Fidelity Distributors Company LLC (FDC), and/or their affiliates may pay intermediaries, which may include banks, broker-dealers, retirement plan sponsors, administrators, or service-providers (who may be affiliated with the Adviser or FDC), for the sale of fund shares and related services. These payments may create a conflict of interest by influencing your intermediary and your investment professional to recommend the fund over another investment. Ask your investment professional or visit your intermediary's web site for more information.
 
Fund Summary
Fund/Class:
Fidelity Freedom® Index 2030 Fund
/Investor 
 
Investment Objective
 
Fidelity Freedom® Index 2030 Fund seeks high total return until its target retirement date. Thereafter the fund's objective will be to seek high current income and, as a secondary objective, capital appreciation.
Fee Table
The following table describes the fees and expenses that may be incurred when you buy, hold, and sell shares of the fund. In addition to the fees and expenses described below, your broker may also require you to pay brokerage commissions on purchases and sales of certain share classes of the fund.
 
 
Shareholder fees
(fees paid directly from your investment)
None
 
Annual Operating Expenses
(expenses that you pay each year as a % of the value of your investment)
Management fee

This example helps compare the cost of investing in the fund with the cost of investing in other funds.

Let's say, hypothetically, that the annual return for shares of the fund is 5% and that the fees and the annual operating expenses for shares of the fund are exactly as described in the fee table. This example illustrates the effect of fees and expenses, but is not meant to suggest actual or expected fees and expenses or returns, all of which may vary. For every $10,000 you invested, here's how much you would pay in total expenses if you sell all of your shares at the end of each time period indicated:

Portfolio Turnover
 
The fund will not incur transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells shares of underlying Fidelity® funds (or "turns over" its portfolio), but it could incur transaction costs if it were to buy and sell other types of securities directly. If the fund were to buy and sell other types of securities directly, a higher portfolio turnover rate could indicate higher transaction costs and could result in higher taxes when fund shares are held in a taxable account. Such costs, if incurred, would not be reflected in annual operating expenses or in the example and would affect the fund's performance. During the most recent fiscal year, the fund's portfolio turnover rate was 15% of the average value of its portfolio.
Principal Investment Strategies
  • Investing primarily in a combination of Fidelity® U.S. equity funds, international equity funds, bond funds, and short-term funds (underlying Fidelity® funds), each of which (excluding any money market fund) seeks to provide investment results that correspond to the total return of a specific index.
  • Allocating assets according to an asset allocation strategy shown in the glide path below that adjusts over time until it reaches an allocation similar to that of the Fidelity Freedom® Index Income Fund, approximately 10 to 19 years after the year 2030. Fidelity Management & Research Company LLC (FMR) (the Adviser) may modify the fund's asset allocations from time to time when in the interests of shareholders.
  • The asset allocation shown in the glide path depicts the allocation to U.S. equity funds, international equity funds, bond funds (including U.S. investment grade bond, international bond, inflation-protected bond, and long-term treasury bond), and short-term funds.
  • Buying and selling futures contracts (both long and short positions) in an effort to manage cash flows efficiently, remain fully invested, or facilitate asset allocation.
  • The Adviser, under normal market conditions, will make investments that are consistent with seeking high total return for several years beyond the fund's target retirement date in an effort to achieve the fund's overall investment objective.
  • Using an asset allocation among underlying Fidelity® funds and futures as of April 1, 2023, of approximately:
U.S. Equity Funds 37%
International Equity Funds 24%
International Bond Funds 5%
U.S. Investment Grade Bond Funds 26%
Long-Term Treasury Bond Funds 5%
Long-Term Inflation-Protected Bond Funds 4%
Short-Term Inflation-Protected Bond Funds 0%
Short-Term Funds 0%
* The Adviser may change these percentages over time. The allocation percentages may not add to 100% due to rounding.
  • Designed for investors who anticipate retiring in or within a few years of 2030 (target retirement date) at or around age 65.
When the asset allocation of a fund matches Fidelity Freedom® Index Income Fund's asset allocation (approximately 10 to 19 years after the year indicated in the fund's name), the Board of Trustees may combine the fund with Fidelity Freedom® Index Income Fund, without shareholder approval, and the fund's shareholders will become shareholders of Fidelity Freedom® Index Income Fund.
Principal Investment Risks
Shareholders should consider that no target date fund is intended as a complete retirement program and there is no guarantee that any single fund will provide sufficient retirement income at or through your retirement. The fund's share price fluctuates, which means you could lose money by investing in the fund, including losses near, at or after the target retirement date.
  • Asset Allocation Risk.
The fund is subject to risks resulting from the Adviser's asset allocation decisions. The selection of underlying funds and the allocation of the fund's assets among various asset classes could cause the fund to lose value or its results to lag relevant benchmarks or other funds with similar objectives.
  • Investing in Other Funds.
The fund bears all risks of investment strategies employed by the underlying funds, including the risk that the underlying funds will not meet their investment objectives.
  • Stock Market Volatility.
The Adviser will continue to invest the fund's assets in equity funds in the years following the fund's target retirement date in an effort to achieve the fund's overall investment objective. Stock markets are volatile and can decline significantly in response to adverse issuer, political, regulatory, market, or economic developments. Different parts of the market, including different market sectors, and different types of securities can react differently to these developments.
  • Interest Rate Changes.
Interest rate increases can cause the price of a debt security to decrease.
  • Foreign Exposure.
Foreign markets, particularly emerging markets, can be more volatile than the U.S. market due to increased risks of adverse issuer, political, regulatory, market, or economic developments and can perform differently from the U.S. market. The extent of economic development; political stability; market depth, infrastructure, and capitalization; and regulatory oversight can be less than in more developed markets. Emerging markets typically have less established legal, accounting and financial reporting systems than those in more developed markets, which may reduce the scope or quality of financial information available to investors. Emerging markets can be subject to greater social, economic, regulatory, and political uncertainties and can be extremely volatile. Foreign exchange rates also can be extremely volatile.
  • Industry Exposure.
Market conditions, interest rates, and economic, regulatory, or financial developments could significantly affect a single industry or group of related industries.
  • Prepayment.
The ability of an issuer of a debt security to repay principal prior to a security's maturity can cause greater price volatility if interest rates change.
  • Issuer-Specific Changes.
The value of an individual security or particular type of security can be more volatile than, and can perform differently from, the market as a whole.
Changes in the financial condition of an issuer or counterparty (e.g., broker-dealer or other borrower in a securities lending transaction) can increase the risk of default by an issuer or counterparty, which can affect a security's or instrument's value or result in delays in recovering securities and/or capital from a counterparty.
A decline in the credit quality of an issuer or a provider of credit support or a maturity-shortening structure for a security can cause the price of a security to decrease.
  • Correlation to Index.
The performance of an underlying index fund and its index may vary somewhat due to factors such as fees and expenses of the underlying fund, transaction costs, sample selection, regulatory restrictions, and timing differences associated with additions to and deletions from the index. Errors in the construction or calculation of the index may occur from time to time and may not be identified and corrected for some period of time, which may have an adverse impact on an underlying fund and its shareholders.
  • Passive Management Risk.
Some of the underlying funds in which the fund invests are managed with a passive investment strategy, attempting to track the performance of an unmanaged index of securities, regardless of the current or projected performance of an underlying fund's index or of the actual securities included in the index. This differs from an actively managed fund, which typically seeks to outperform a benchmark index. As a result, the performance of these underlying funds could be lower than actively managed funds that may shift their portfolio assets to take advantage of market opportunities or lessen the impact of a market decline or a decline in the value of one or more issuers. An underlying index fund may be concentrated to approximately the same extent that its index concentrates in the securities of issuers in a particular industry or group of industries.
  • Leverage Risk.
Leverage can increase market exposure, magnify investment risks, and cause losses to be realized more quickly.
  • Securities Lending Risk.
Securities lending involves the risk that the borrower may fail to return the securities loaned in a timely manner or at all. If the borrower defaults on its obligation to return the securities loaned because of insolvency or other reasons, an underlying fund could experience delays and costs in recovering the securities loaned or in gaining access to the collateral.
An investment in the fund is not a deposit of a bank and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. You could lose money by investing in the fund.

Tax Information
Distributions you receive from the fund are subject to federal income tax and generally will be taxed as ordinary income or capital gains, and may also be subject to state or local taxes, unless you are investing through a tax-advantaged retirement account (in which case you may be taxed later, upon withdrawal of your investment from such account).
Payments to Broker-Dealers and Other Financial Intermediaries
The fund, the Adviser, Fidelity Distributors Company LLC (FDC), and/or their affiliates may pay intermediaries, which may include banks, broker-dealers, retirement plan sponsors, administrators, or service-providers (who may be affiliated with the Adviser or FDC), for the sale of fund shares and related services. These payments may create a conflict of interest by influencing your intermediary and your investment professional to recommend the fund over another investment. Ask your investment professional or visit your intermediary's web site for more information.
 
Fund Summary
Fund/Class:
Fidelity Freedom® Index 2040 Fund
/Investor 
 
Investment Objective
 
Fidelity Freedom® Index 2040 Fund seeks high total return until its target retirement date. Thereafter the fund's objective will be to seek high current income and, as a secondary objective, capital appreciation.
Fee Table
The following table describes the fees and expenses that may be incurred when you buy, hold, and sell shares of the fund. In addition to the fees and expenses described below, your broker may also require you to pay brokerage commissions on purchases and sales of certain share classes of the fund.
 
 
Shareholder fees
(fees paid directly from your investment)
None
 
Annual Operating Expenses
(expenses that you pay each year as a % of the value of your investment)
Management fee

This example helps compare the cost of investing in the fund with the cost of investing in other funds.

Let's say, hypothetically, that the annual return for shares of the fund is 5% and that the fees and the annual operating expenses for shares of the fund are exactly as described in the fee table. This example illustrates the effect of fees and expenses, but is not meant to suggest actual or expected fees and expenses or returns, all of which may vary. For every $10,000 you invested, here's how much you would pay in total expenses if you sell all of your shares at the end of each time period indicated:

Portfolio Turnover
 
The fund will not incur transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells shares of underlying Fidelity® funds (or "turns over" its portfolio), but it could incur transaction costs if it were to buy and sell other types of securities directly. If the fund were to buy and sell other types of securities directly, a higher portfolio turnover rate could indicate higher transaction costs and could result in higher taxes when fund shares are held in a taxable account. Such costs, if incurred, would not be reflected in annual operating expenses or in the example and would affect the fund's performance. During the most recent fiscal year, the fund's portfolio turnover rate was 12% of the average value of its portfolio.
Principal Investment Strategies
  • Investing primarily in a combination of Fidelity® U.S. equity funds, international equity funds, bond funds, and short-term funds (underlying Fidelity® funds), each of which (excluding any money market fund) seeks to provide investment results that correspond to the total return of a specific index.
  • Allocating assets according to an asset allocation strategy shown in the glide path below that adjusts over time until it reaches an allocation similar to that of the Fidelity Freedom® Index Income Fund, approximately 10 to 19 years after the year 2040. Fidelity Management & Research Company LLC (FMR) (the Adviser) may modify the fund's asset allocations from time to time when in the interests of shareholders.
  • The asset allocation shown in the glide path depicts the allocation to U.S. equity funds, international equity funds, bond funds (including U.S. investment grade bond, international bond, inflation-protected bond, and long-term treasury bond), and short-term funds.
  • Buying and selling futures contracts (both long and short positions) in an effort to manage cash flows efficiently, remain fully invested, or facilitate asset allocation.
  • The Adviser, under normal market conditions, will make investments that are consistent with seeking high total return for several years beyond the fund's target retirement date in an effort to achieve the fund's overall investment objective.
  • Using an asset allocation among underlying Fidelity® funds and futures as of April 1, 2023, of approximately:
U.S. Equity Funds 52%
International Equity Funds 35%
International Bond Funds 2%
U.S. Investment Grade Bond Funds 6%
Long-Term Treasury Bond Funds 5%
Long-Term Inflation-Protected Bond Funds 0%
Short-Term Inflation-Protected Bond Funds 0%
Short-Term Funds 0%
* The Adviser may change these percentages over time. The allocation percentages may not add to 100% due to rounding.
  • Designed for investors who anticipate retiring in or within a few years of 2040 (target retirement date) at or around age 65.
When the asset allocation of a fund matches Fidelity Freedom® Index Income Fund's asset allocation (approximately 10 to 19 years after the year indicated in the fund's name), the Board of Trustees may combine the fund with Fidelity Freedom® Index Income Fund, without shareholder approval, and the fund's shareholders will become shareholders of Fidelity Freedom® Index Income Fund.
Principal Investment Risks
Shareholders should consider that no target date fund is intended as a complete retirement program and there is no guarantee that any single fund will provide sufficient retirement income at or through your retirement. The fund's share price fluctuates, which means you could lose money by investing in the fund, including losses near, at or after the target retirement date.
  • Asset Allocation Risk.
The fund is subject to risks resulting from the Adviser's asset allocation decisions. The selection of underlying funds and the allocation of the fund's assets among various asset classes could cause the fund to lose value or its results to lag relevant benchmarks or other funds with similar objectives.
  • Investing in Other Funds.
The fund bears all risks of investment strategies employed by the underlying funds, including the risk that the underlying funds will not meet their investment objectives.
  • Stock Market Volatility.
The Adviser will continue to invest the fund's assets in equity funds in the years following the fund's target retirement date in an effort to achieve the fund's overall investment objective. Stock markets are volatile and can decline significantly in response to adverse issuer, political, regulatory, market, or economic developments. Different parts of the market, including different market sectors, and different types of securities can react differently to these developments.
  • Interest Rate Changes.
Interest rate increases can cause the price of a debt security to decrease.
  • Foreign Exposure.
Foreign markets, particularly emerging markets, can be more volatile than the U.S. market due to increased risks of adverse issuer, political, regulatory, market, or economic developments and can perform differently from the U.S. market. The extent of economic development; political stability; market depth, infrastructure, and capitalization; and regulatory oversight can be less than in more developed markets. Emerging markets typically have less established legal, accounting and financial reporting systems than those in more developed markets, which may reduce the scope or quality of financial information available to investors. Emerging markets can be subject to greater social, economic, regulatory, and political uncertainties and can be extremely volatile. Foreign exchange rates also can be extremely volatile.
  • Industry Exposure.
Market conditions, interest rates, and economic, regulatory, or financial developments could significantly affect a single industry or group of related industries.
  • Prepayment.
The ability of an issuer of a debt security to repay principal prior to a security's maturity can cause greater price volatility if interest rates change.
  • Issuer-Specific Changes.
The value of an individual security or particular type of security can be more volatile than, and can perform differently from, the market as a whole.
Changes in the financial condition of an issuer or counterparty (e.g., broker-dealer or other borrower in a securities lending transaction) can increase the risk of default by an issuer or counterparty, which can affect a security's or instrument's value or result in delays in recovering securities and/or capital from a counterparty.
A decline in the credit quality of an issuer or a provider of credit support or a maturity-shortening structure for a security can cause the price of a security to decrease.
  • Correlation to Index.
The performance of an underlying index fund and its index may vary somewhat due to factors such as fees and expenses of the underlying fund, transaction costs, sample selection, regulatory restrictions, and timing differences associated with additions to and deletions from the index. Errors in the construction or calculation of the index may occur from time to time and may not be identified and corrected for some period of time, which may have an adverse impact on an underlying fund and its shareholders.
  • Passive Management Risk.
Some of the underlying funds in which the fund invests are managed with a passive investment strategy, attempting to track the performance of an unmanaged index of securities, regardless of the current or projected performance of an underlying fund's index or of the actual securities included in the index. This differs from an actively managed fund, which typically seeks to outperform a benchmark index. As a result, the performance of these underlying funds could be lower than actively managed funds that may shift their portfolio assets to take advantage of market opportunities or lessen the impact of a market decline or a decline in the value of one or more issuers. An underlying index fund may be concentrated to approximately the same extent that its index concentrates in the securities of issuers in a particular industry or group of industries.
  • Leverage Risk.
Leverage can increase market exposure, magnify investment risks, and cause losses to be realized more quickly.
  • Securities Lending Risk.
Securities lending involves the risk that the borrower may fail to return the securities loaned in a timely manner or at all. If the borrower defaults on its obligation to return the securities loaned because of insolvency or other reasons, an underlying fund could experience delays and costs in recovering the securities loaned or in gaining access to the collateral.
An investment in the fund is not a deposit of a bank and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. You could lose money by investing in the fund.

After-tax returns are calculated using the historical highest individual federal marginal income tax rates, but do not reflect the impact of state or local taxes. Actual after-tax returns may differ depending on your individual circumstances. The after-tax returns shown are not relevant if you hold your shares in a retirement account or in another tax-deferred arrangement, such as an employee benefit plan (profit sharing, 401(k), or 403(b) plan). Return After Taxes on Distributions and Sale of Fund Shares may be higher than other returns for the same period due to a tax benefit of realizing a capital loss upon the sale of fund shares.
