A higher portfolio turnover rate may <br />indicate higher transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when fund shares <br />are held in a taxable account. These costs, which are not reflected in annual fund <br />operating expenses or in the example, affect the fund's investment results. During <br />the most recent fiscal year, the fund's portfolio turnover rate was 442% of the <br />average value of its portfolio.</tt> <div style="display:none">~ http://www.americanfunds.com/role/ExpenseExample_S000030190Member column dei_LegalEntityAxis compact * column rr_ProspectusShareClassAxis compact * row primary compact * ~</div> <div style="display:none">~ http://www.americanfunds.com/role/BarChartData_S000030190Member column dei_LegalEntityAxis compact * column rr_ProspectusShareClassAxis compact * row primary compact * ~</div> <tt>The fund's investment objective is to provide current income and preservation of<br />capital.</tt> <tt>This example is intended to help you compare the cost of investing in<br />the fund with the cost of investing in other mutual funds.<br /> <br />The example assumes that you invest $10,000 in the fund for the time periods<br />indicated and then redeem all of your shares at the end of those periods. The<br />example also assumes that your investment has a 5% return each year and that <br />the fund's operating expenses remain the same.</tt> <tt>Normally at least 80% of the fund's assets will be invested in mortgage-related<br />securities, including securities collateralized by mortgage loans and contracts<br />for future delivery of such securities (such as to be announced contracts and<br />mortgage dollar rolls). The fund will invest primarily in mortgage-related<br />securities that are sponsored or guaranteed by the U.S. government, such as<br />securities issued by government-sponsored entities that are not backed by the<br />full faith and credit of the U.S. government, and nongovernment mortgage-related<br />securities that are rated in the Aaa or AAA rating category (by Nationally<br />Recognized Statistical Rating Organizations designated by the fund's investment<br />adviser) or unrated but determined to be of equivalent quality by the fund's<br />investment adviser. The fund may also invest a portion of its assets in debt<br />issued by federal agencies. Each contract for future delivery is normally of<br />short duration and is replaced by another contract prior to maturity. Each such<br />transaction is reflected as turnover in the fund's portfolio, resulting in a<br />higher portfolio turnover rate than funds that do not employ this investment<br />strategy.<br /> <br />The investment adviser uses a system of multiple portfolio counselors in<br />managing the fund's assets. Under this approach, the portfolio of the fund is<br />divided into segments managed by individual counselors who decide how their<br />respective segments will be invested.<br /> <br />The fund relies on the professional judgment of its investment adviser to make<br />decisions about the fund's portfolio investments. The basic investment<br />philosophy of the investment adviser is to seek to invest in attractively priced<br />securities that, in its opinion, represent good, long-term investment<br />opportunities. The investment adviser believes that an important way to<br />accomplish this is by analyzing various factors, which may include the credit<br />strength of the issuer, prices of similar securities issued by comparable<br />issuers, anticipated changes in interest rates, general market conditions and<br />other factors pertinent to the particular security being evaluated. Securities<br />may be sold when the investment adviser believes that they no longer represent<br />relatively attractive investment opportunities.</tt> American Funds Mortgage Fund® You may qualify for sales charge discounts if you and your family invest, or agree to invest in the future, at least $100,000 in American Funds. Example After-tax returns are calculated using the highest individual federal income tax rates in effect during each year of the periods shown and do not reflect the impact of state and local taxes. Investment objective Past investment results (before and after taxes) are not predictive of future investment results. The Lipper U.S. Mortgage Funds Average includes the fund and other funds that disclose investment objectives and/or strategies reasonably comparable to the fund's objective and/or strategies. The Lipper GNMA Funds Average includes funds that disclose investment objectives and/or strategies reasonably comparable to the fund's objective and/or strategies. You may lose money by investing in the fund. Principal risks Shareholder fees (fees paid directly from your investment) Although your actual costs may be higher or lower, based on these assumptions your costs would be: 4.42 Your actual after-tax returns depend on your individual tax situation and likely will differ from the results shown above. In addition, after-tax returns are not relevant if you hold your fund shares through a tax-favored arrangement, such as a 401(k) plan, individual retirement account (IRA) or 529 college savings plan.

You may lose money by investing in the fund. The<br />likelihood of loss may be greater if you invest for a shorter period of time.<br /> <br />Investing in mortgage-related securities - Mortgage-related securities are<br />subject to prepayment risk as well as the risks associated with investing in<br />debt securities in general. If interest rates fall and the loans underlying<br />these securities are prepaid faster than expected, the fund may have to reinvest<br />the prepaid principal in lower yielding securities, thus reducing the fund's<br />income. Conversely, if interest rates increase and the loans underlying the<br />securities are prepaid more slowly than expected, the expected duration of the<br />securities may be extended, reducing the cash flow for potential reinvestment in<br />higher yielding securities.<br /> <br />Market conditions - The prices of, and the income generated by, the securities<br />held by the fund may decline due to market conditions and other factors,<br />including those directly involving the issuers of securities held by the fund.<br /> <br />Investing in bonds - Rising interest rates will generally cause the prices of<br />bonds and other debt securities to fall. Longer maturity debt securities may be<br />subject to greater price fluctuations than shorter maturity debt securities. In<br />addition, falling interest rates may cause an issuer to redeem, call or<br />refinance a security before its stated maturity, which may result in the fund<br />having to reinvest the proceeds in lower yielding securities.<br /> <br />Bonds and other debt securities are subject to credit risk, which is the<br />possibility that the credit strength of an issuer will weaken and/or an issuer<br />of a debt security will fail to make timely payments of principal or interest<br />and the security will go into default. Lower quality debt securities generally<br />have higher rates of interest and may be subject to greater price fluctuations<br />than higher quality debt securities.<br /> <br />Thinly traded securities - There may be little trading in the secondary market<br />for particular bonds or other debt securities, which may make them more<br />difficult to value, acquire or sell.<br /> <br />Investing in securities backed by the U.S. government - Securities backed by the<br />U.S. Treasury or the full faith and credit of the U.S. government are guaranteed<br />only as to the timely payment of interest and principal when held to maturity.<br />Accordingly, the current market values for these securities will fluctuate with<br />changes in interest rates. Securities issued by government-sponsored entities<br />and federal agencies and instrumentalities that are not backed by the full faith<br />and credit of the U.S. government are neither issued nor guaranteed by the U.S.<br />government.<br /> <br />Investing in future delivery contracts - Contracts for future delivery of<br />mortgage-related securities, such as to be announced contracts and mortgage<br />dollar rolls, involve the fund selling mortgage-related securities and<br />simultaneously contracting to repurchase similar securities for delivery at a<br />future date at a predetermined price. This can increase the fund's market<br />exposure, and the market price of the securities the fund contracts to<br />repurchase could drop below their purchase price. While the fund can preserve<br />and generate capital through the use of such contracts by, for example,<br />realizing the difference between the sale price and the future purchase price,<br />the income generated by the fund may be reduced by engaging in such<br />transactions. In addition, these transactions may increase the turnover rate of<br />the fund.<br />&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;<br />Management - The investment adviser to the fund actively manages the fund's<br />investments. Consequently, the fund is subject to the risk that the methods and<br />analyses employed by the investment adviser in this process may not produce the<br />desired results. This could cause the fund to lose value or its investment<br />results to lag relevant benchmarks or other funds with similar objectives.<br /> <br />It is important to note that neither your investment in the fund nor the fund's<br />yield is guaranteed by the U.S. government. Your investment in the fund is not a<br />bank deposit and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance<br />Corporation or any other governmental agency, entity or person. You should<br />consider how this fund fits into your overall investment program.</tt> Fees and expenses of the fund After-tax returns are shown only for Class A shares; after-tax returns for other share classes will vary.

Risk Return [Abstract] rr_RiskReturnAbstract  
Risk/Return [Heading] rr_RiskReturnHeading American Funds Mortgage Fund®
Objective [Heading] rr_ObjectiveHeading Investment objective
Objective, Primary [Text Block] rr_ObjectivePrimaryTextBlock The fund's investment objective is to provide current income and preservation of
capital.
Expense [Heading] rr_ExpenseHeading Fees and expenses of the fund
Expense Narrative [Text Block] rr_ExpenseNarrativeTextBlock This table describes the fees and expenses that you may pay if you buy and hold
shares of the fund. You may qualify for sales charge discounts if you and your
family invest, or agree to invest in the future, at least $100,000 in American
Funds. More information about these and other discounts is available from your
financial professional and in the "Sales charge reductions and waivers" section
on page 26 of the prospectus and on page 58 of the fund's statement of
additional information.
Shareholder Fees Caption [Text] rr_ShareholderFeesCaption Shareholder fees (fees paid directly from your investment)
Operating Expenses Caption [Text] rr_OperatingExpensesCaption Annual fund operating expenses (expenses that you pay each year as a percentage of the value of your investment)
Portfolio Turnover [Heading] rr_PortfolioTurnoverHeading Portfolio turnover
Portfolio Turnover [Text Block] rr_PortfolioTurnoverTextBlock The fund pays transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells
securities (or "turns over" its portfolio). A higher portfolio turnover rate may
indicate higher transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when fund shares
are held in a taxable account. These costs, which are not reflected in annual fund
operating expenses or in the example, affect the fund's investment results. During
the most recent fiscal year, the fund's portfolio turnover rate was 442% of the
average value of its portfolio.
Portfolio Turnover, Rate rr_PortfolioTurnoverRate 442.00%
Expense Breakpoint Discounts [Text] rr_ExpenseBreakpointDiscounts You may qualify for sales charge discounts if you and your family invest, or agree to invest in the future, at least $100,000 in American Funds.
Expense Breakpoint, Minimum Investment Required [Amount] rr_ExpenseBreakpointMinimumInvestmentRequiredAmount 100,000
Expense Example [Heading] rr_ExpenseExampleHeading Example
Expense Example Narrative [Text Block] rr_ExpenseExampleNarrativeTextBlock This example is intended to help you compare the cost of investing in
the fund with the cost of investing in other mutual funds.

The example assumes that you invest $10,000 in the fund for the time periods
indicated and then redeem all of your shares at the end of those periods. The

Strategy [Heading] rr_StrategyHeading Principal investment strategies
Strategy Narrative [Text Block] rr_StrategyNarrativeTextBlock Normally at least 80% of the fund's assets will be invested in mortgage-related
securities, including securities collateralized by mortgage loans and contracts
for future delivery of such securities (such as to be announced contracts and
mortgage dollar rolls). The fund will invest primarily in mortgage-related
securities that are sponsored or guaranteed by the U.S. government, such as
securities issued by government-sponsored entities that are not backed by the
full faith and credit of the U.S. government, and nongovernment mortgage-related
securities that are rated in the Aaa or AAA rating category (by Nationally
Recognized Statistical Rating Organizations designated by the fund's investment
adviser) or unrated but determined to be of equivalent quality by the fund's
investment adviser. The fund may also invest a portion of its assets in debt
issued by federal agencies. Each contract for future delivery is normally of
short duration and is replaced by another contract prior to maturity. Each such
transaction is reflected as turnover in the fund's portfolio, resulting in a
higher portfolio turnover rate than funds that do not employ this investment
strategy.

The investment adviser uses a system of multiple portfolio counselors in
managing the fund's assets. Under this approach, the portfolio of the fund is
divided into segments managed by individual counselors who decide how their
respective segments will be invested.

The fund relies on the professional judgment of its investment adviser to make
decisions about the fund's portfolio investments. The basic investment
philosophy of the investment adviser is to seek to invest in attractively priced
securities that, in its opinion, represent good, long-term investment
opportunities. The investment adviser believes that an important way to
accomplish this is by analyzing various factors, which may include the credit
strength of the issuer, prices of similar securities issued by comparable
issuers, anticipated changes in interest rates, general market conditions and
other factors pertinent to the particular security being evaluated. Securities
may be sold when the investment adviser believes that they no longer represent
relatively attractive investment opportunities.
Risk [Heading] rr_RiskHeading Principal risks
Risk Narrative [Text Block] rr_RiskNarrativeTextBlock This section describes the principal risks associated with the fund's principal
investment strategies. You may lose money by investing in the fund. The
likelihood of loss may be greater if you invest for a shorter period of time.

Investing in mortgage-related securities - Mortgage-related securities are
subject to prepayment risk as well as the risks associated with investing in
debt securities in general. If interest rates fall and the loans underlying
these securities are prepaid faster than expected, the fund may have to reinvest
the prepaid principal in lower yielding securities, thus reducing the fund's
income. Conversely, if interest rates increase and the loans underlying the
securities are prepaid more slowly than expected, the expected duration of the
securities may be extended, reducing the cash flow for potential reinvestment in
higher yielding securities.

Market conditions - The prices of, and the income generated by, the securities
held by the fund may decline due to market conditions and other factors,
including those directly involving the issuers of securities held by the fund.

Investing in bonds - Rising interest rates will generally cause the prices of
bonds and other debt securities to fall. Longer maturity debt securities may be
subject to greater price fluctuations than shorter maturity debt securities. In
addition, falling interest rates may cause an issuer to redeem, call or
refinance a security before its stated maturity, which may result in the fund
having to reinvest the proceeds in lower yielding securities.

Bonds and other debt securities are subject to credit risk, which is the
possibility that the credit strength of an issuer will weaken and/or an issuer
of a debt security will fail to make timely payments of principal or interest
and the security will go into default. Lower quality debt securities generally
have higher rates of interest and may be subject to greater price fluctuations
than higher quality debt securities.

Thinly traded securities - There may be little trading in the secondary market
for particular bonds or other debt securities, which may make them more
difficult to value, acquire or sell.

Investing in securities backed by the U.S. government - Securities backed by the
U.S. Treasury or the full faith and credit of the U.S. government are guaranteed
only as to the timely payment of interest and principal when held to maturity.
Accordingly, the current market values for these securities will fluctuate with
changes in interest rates. Securities issued by government-sponsored entities
and federal agencies and instrumentalities that are not backed by the full faith
and credit of the U.S. government are neither issued nor guaranteed by the U.S.
government.

Investing in future delivery contracts - Contracts for future delivery of
mortgage-related securities, such as to be announced contracts and mortgage
dollar rolls, involve the fund selling mortgage-related securities and
simultaneously contracting to repurchase similar securities for delivery at a
future date at a predetermined price. This can increase the fund's market
exposure, and the market price of the securities the fund contracts to
repurchase could drop below their purchase price. While the fund can preserve
and generate capital through the use of such contracts by, for example,
realizing the difference between the sale price and the future purchase price,
the income generated by the fund may be reduced by engaging in such
transactions. In addition, these transactions may increase the turnover rate of
the fund.
                                                                                 
Management - The investment adviser to the fund actively manages the fund's
investments. Consequently, the fund is subject to the risk that the methods and
analyses employed by the investment adviser in this process may not produce the
desired results. This could cause the fund to lose value or its investment
results to lag relevant benchmarks or other funds with similar objectives.

It is important to note that neither your investment in the fund nor the fund's
yield is guaranteed by the U.S. government. Your investment in the fund is not a
bank deposit and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance
Corporation or any other governmental agency, entity or person. You should
consider how this fund fits into your overall investment program.
