As a result, the Fund may be more susceptible to a single adverse economic or political occurrence affecting one or more of these issuers and may experience increased volatility due to its investments in those securities. <tt>The Fund pays transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells<br />securities (or "turns over" its portfolio). A higher portfolio turnover rate <br />may indicate higher transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when Fund<br />shares are held in a taxable account. These costs, which are not reflected in<br />annual Fund operating expenses or in the Example, affect the Fund's performance.<br />During the most recent fiscal year, the Fund's portfolio turnover rate was 13%<br />of the average value of its portfolio.</tt> <div style="display:none">~ http://www.seic.com/role/ExpenseExample_S000016947Member column dei_LegalEntityAxis compact * column rr_ProspectusShareClassAxis compact * row primary compact * ~</div> <div style="display:none">~ http://www.seic.com/role/BarChartData_S000016947Member column dei_LegalEntityAxis compact * column rr_ProspectusShareClassAxis compact * row primary compact * ~</div> <tt>Provide the highest level of income possible in a tax efficient manner.</tt> <tt>This Example is intended to help you compare the cost of investing in the Fund<br />with the cost of investing in other mutual funds. The Example assumes that you<br />invest $10,000 in the Fund for the time periods indicated and then redeem all <br />of your shares at the end of those periods. The Example also assumes that your<br />investment has a 5% return each year and that the Fund's operating expenses<br />remain the same.</tt> Average Annual Total Returns (for the periods ended December 31, 2011) reflects no deduction for fees, expenses or taxes <tt>The Tax-Advantaged Income Fund will invest, under normal circumstances, at least<br />50% of its net assets in municipal securities that pay interest that is exempt<br />from federal income tax, including the alternative minimum tax. The principal<br />issuers of these securities are state and local governments and their agencies<br />located in any of the fifty states, as well as in Puerto Rico and other U.S.<br />territories and possessions. The Fund may invest more than 25% of its total<br />assets in bonds of issuers in California and New York. Under most market<br />conditions, a large percentage of the municipal securities in which the Fund<br />invests will be below investment grade (junk bonds), but the Fund, without<br />limitation, may invest in higher rated municipal securities.<br /> <br />To a lesser extent, the Fund will also invest in a full range of preferred stock<br />with an emphasis on preferred securities that, at the time of issuance, are<br />eligible to pay dividends that qualify for certain favorable federal income tax<br />treatment, such as dividends that are treated as qualified dividend income and<br />the dividend received deduction (in each instance, provided certain requirements<br />and holding periods are satisfied, see "Taxes"). Absent further legislation, the<br />favorable federal income tax rates applicable to qualified dividend income will<br />cease to apply in taxable years beginning after December 31, 2012 (for more<br />information, see "Taxes"). The amount invested in preferred stocks at any one<br />time will depend on the attractiveness of the after-tax income stream produced<br />by the preferred securities and will be less than 50% of the Fund's net assets.<br />It is possible that the Fund could own no preferred securities if municipal<br />securities produce a higher yield on an after-tax basis.<br /> <br />While a portion of the Fund may invest in securities other than municipal and<br />preferred securities, the Fund will seek to purchase securities that enjoy<br />preferential tax treatment. The Fund may also invest in convertible securities,<br />securities eligible for resale under Rule 144A of the Securities Act of 1933 <br />and other privately placed securities, debt securities subject to federal <br />income tax, common stock and open and closed-end funds. SIMC may directly <br />invest up to 5% of the Fund's assets in closed-end bond funds.<br /> <br />The Fund uses a multi-manager approach to manage the Fund's portfolio under the<br />general supervision of SIMC. Each Sub-Adviser and, to the extent applicable,<br />SIMC selects securities based on its view on the future direction of interest<br />rates and the shape of the yield curve, as well as its views on credit quality<br />and sector allocation issues. Where possible, each Sub-Adviser and, to the<br />extent applicable, SIMC, will attempt to acquire securities that are underpriced<br />relative to other eligible securities. Each Sub-Adviser and, to the extent<br />applicable, SIMC, will seek to maintain duration of four to eleven years for the<br />Fund's entire portfolio. The Fund may invest in securities subject to the<br />alternative minimum tax or in taxable debt securities.</tt> TAX-ADVANTAGED INCOME FUND EXAMPLE After-tax returns are calculated using the historical highest individual federal marginal income tax rates and do not reflect the impact of state and local taxes. Investment Goal The Fund's past performance (before and after taxes) is not necessarily an indication of how the Fund will perform in the future. Loss of money is a risk of 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: 0.13 Your actual after-tax returns will depend on your tax situation and may differ from those shown. After-tax returns shown are not relevant to investors who hold their Fund shares through tax-deferred arrangements, such as 401(k) plans or individual retirement accounts. Performance Information The bar chart and the performance table below provide some indication of the risks of investing in the Fund by showing the Fund's performance from year to year for the past four calendar years and by showing how the Fund's average annual returns for 1 year, and since the Fund's inception, compared with those of a broad measure of market performance. <tt>Best Quarter: 17.31% (06/30/09)<br /> <br />Worst Quarter: -11.47% (09/30/08)<br /> <br />The Fund's Class A total return (pre-tax) from January 1, 2012 to <br />September 30, 2012 was 13.11%.</tt> 1-800-DIAL-SEI ANNUAL FUND OPERATING EXPENSES (expenses that you pay each year as a percentage of the value of your investment) PORTFOLIO TURNOVER <tt>Below Investment Grade Securities Risk -- Fixed income securities rated below<br />investment grade (junk bonds) involve greater risks of default or downgrade and<br />are more volatile than investment grade securities because the prospect for<br />repayment of principal and interest of many of these securities is speculative.<br /> <br />California/New York Investment Risk -- To the extent the Fund invests a material<br />portion of its assets in issuers of California or New York municipal securities,<br />the Fund's performance will be affected by the fiscal and economic health of <br />the States of California or New York, their political subdivisions, <br />municipalities, agencies and authorities and political and regulatory <br />developments affecting California or New York municipal issuers.<br /> <br />Call Risk -- Issuers of callable bonds may call (redeem) securities with higher<br />coupons or interest rates before their maturity dates. The Fund may be forced to<br />reinvest the unanticipated proceeds at lower interest rates, resulting in a<br />decline in the Fund's income. Bonds may be called due to falling interest rates<br />or non-economical circumstances.<br /> <br />Convertible and Preferred Securities Risk -- Convertible and preferred securities<br />generally have less potential for gain or loss than common stocks. In addition,<br />convertible and preferred securities generally provide yields higher than the<br />underlying common stocks, but generally lower than comparable non-convertible<br />securities. Because of this higher yield, convertible and preferred securities<br />generally sell at a price above their "conversion value," which is the current<br />market value of the stock to be received upon conversion. The difference between<br />this conversion value and the price of convertible and preferred securities will<br />vary over time depending on changes in the value of the underlying common stocks<br />and interest rates. Convertible and preferred securities are also subject to<br />credit risk and are often lower-quality securities.<br /> <br />Credit Risk -- The Fund could lose money if the issuer or guarantor of a<br />portfolio security or a counterparty to a contract fails to make timely payment<br />or otherwise honor its obligations. If the Fund purchases securities supported<br />by credit enhancements from banks and other financial institutions, changes in<br />the credit quality of these institutions could cause losses to the Fund and<br />affect its share price.<br /> <br />Equity Market Risk -- The risk that stock prices will fall over short or extended<br />periods of time.<br /> <br />Extension Risk -- The risk that rising interest rates may extend the duration of<br />a fixed income security, typically reducing the security's value.<br /> <br />Interest Rate Risk -- The risk that the value of fixed income securities will<br />fall due to rising interest rates.<br /> <br />Investment Company Risk -- When the Fund invests in an investment company, in<br />addition to directly bearing the expenses associated with its own operations, it<br />will bear a pro rata portion of the investment company's expenses. In addition,<br />while the risks of owning shares of an investment company generally reflect the<br />risks of owning the underlying investments of the investment company, the Fund<br />may be subject to additional or different risks than if the Fund had invested<br />directly in the underlying investments. Closed-end investment companies issue a<br />fixed number of shares that trade on a stock exchange or over-the-counter at a<br />premium or a discount to their net asset value. As a result, a closed-end fund's<br />share price fluctuates based on what another investor is willing to pay rather<br />than on the market value of the securities in the fund.<br /> <br />Liquidity Risk -- The risk that certain securities may be difficult or impossible<br />to sell at the time and the price that the Fund would like. The Fund may have to<br />lower the price, sell other securities instead or forego an investment<br />opportunity, any of which could have a negative effect on Fund management or<br />performance.<br /> <br />Municipal Securities Risk -- Municipal securities, like other fixed income<br />securities, rise and fall in value in response to economic and market factors,<br />primarily changes in interest rates, and actual or perceived credit quality.<br />Rising interest rates will generally cause municipal securities to decline in<br />value. Longer-term securities respond more sharply to interest rate changes <br />than do shorter-term securities. A municipal security will also lose value if, <br />due to rating downgrades or other factors, there are concerns about the issuer's<br />current or future ability to make principal or interest payments. State and<br />local governments rely on taxes and, to some extent, revenues from private<br />projects financed by municipal securities, to pay interest and principal on<br />municipal debt. Poor statewide or local economic results or changing political<br />sentiments may reduce tax revenues and increase the expenses of municipal<br />issuers, making it more difficult for them to meet their obligations. Actual or<br />perceived erosion of the creditworthiness of municipal issuers may reduce the<br />value of the Fund's holdings. As a result, the Fund will be more susceptible to<br />factors that adversely affect issuers of municipal obligations than a mutual<br />fund that does not have as great a concentration in municipal obligations. Also,<br />there may be economic or political changes that impact the ability of issuers of<br />municipal securities to repay principal and to make interest payments on<br />securities owned by the Fund. Any changes in the financial condition of<br />municipal issuers may also adversely affect the value of the Fund's securities.<br /> <br />Non-Diversified Risk -- The Fund is non-diversified, which means that it may<br />invest in the securities of relatively few issuers. As a result, the Fund may be<br />more susceptible to a single adverse economic or political occurrence affecting<br />one or more of these issuers and may experience increased volatility due to its<br />investments in those securities.<br /> <br />Portfolio Turnover Risk -- Due to its investment strategy, the Fund may buy and<br />sell securities frequently. This may result in higher transaction costs and<br />additional capital gains tax liabilities.<br /> <br />Prepayment Risk -- The risk that, with declining interest rates, fixed income<br />securities with stated interest rates may have the principal paid earlier than<br />expected, requiring the Fund to invest the proceeds at generally lower interest<br />rates.<br /> <br />Private Placements Risk -- Investment in privately placed securities may be <br />less liquid than in publicly traded securities. Although these securities may <br />be resold in privately negotiated transactions, the prices realized from these<br />sales could be less than those originally paid by the Fund or less than what <br />may be considered the fair value of such securities. Furthermore, companies <br />whose securities are not publicly traded may not be subject to the disclosure <br />and other investor protection requirements that might be applicable if their<br />securities were publicly traded.<br /> <br />Tax Risk -- In order to pay tax-exempt interest, tax-exempt securities must <br />meet certain legal requirements. Failure to meet such requirements may cause <br />the interest received and distributed by the Fund to shareholders to be <br />taxable. Changes or proposed changes in federal tax laws may cause the prices <br />of tax-exempt securities to fall. While the Fund intends, under normal<br />circumstances, to invest at least 50% of its net assets in municipal securities<br />that pay interest that is exempt from federal income tax in order to meet the<br />requirements necessary to pay out exempt-interest dividends to its shareholders,<br />if the Fund fails to meet this requirement, the income from all of its investments, <br />including its municipal securities, may be subject to federal income tax.<br /> <br />Loss of money is a risk of investing in the Fund.</tt> Fees and Expenses Principal Investment Strategies <tt>The bar chart and the performance table below provide some indication of the<br />risks of investing in the Fund by showing the Fund's performance from year <br />to year for the past four calendar years and by showing how the Fund's <br />average annual returns for 1 year, and since the Fund's inception, compared<br />with those of a broad measure of market performance.

The principal issuers of these securities are<br />state and local governments and their agencies located in any of the fifty<br />states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and other U.S. territories and<br />possessions.<br /> <br />The Fund uses a multi-manager approach, relying on a number of sub-advisers<br />(each, a Sub-Adviser and collectively, the Sub-Advisers) with differing<br />investment philosophies to manage the Fund's portfolio under the general<br />supervision of SEI Investments Management Corporation, the Fund's adviser<br />(SIMC). To a limited extent, SIMC may also directly manage a portion of the<br />Fund's portfolio. The Sub-Advisers and, to the extent applicable, SIMC select<br />securities based on their views on the future direction of interest rates and<br />the shape of the yield curve, as well as their views on credit quality and<br />sector allocation issues. Where possible, the Sub-Advisers and, to the extent<br />applicable, SIMC will attempt to acquire securities that are underpriced<br />relative to other eligible securities. The Sub-Advisers and, to the extent<br />applicable, SIMC will strive to maintain an average dollar-weighted portfolio<br />maturity of three to ten years for the Fund's entire portfolio. The Fund may, <br />to a limited extent, invest in securities subject to the alternative minimum <br />tax or in debt securities subject to federal income tax. The Fund may also <br />invest in municipal securities rated below investment grade (junk bonds).</tt> INTERMEDIATE-TERM MUNICIPAL FUND EXAMPLE After-tax returns are calculated using the historical highest individual federal marginal income tax rates and do not reflect the impact of state and local taxes.

Performance Information The bar chart and the performance table below provide some indication of the risks of investing in the Fund by showing changes in the Fund's performance from year to year for the past ten calendar years and by showing how the Fund's average annual returns for 1, 5 and 10 years, and since the Fund's inception, compared with those of a broad measure of market performance. <tt>Best Quarter: 6.42% (09/30/09)<br /> <br />Worst Quarter: -3.11% (12/31/10)<br /> <br />The Fund's Class A total return (pre-tax) from January 1, 2012 <br />to September 30, 2012 was 4.75%.</tt> 1-800-DIAL-SEI ANNUAL FUND OPERATING EXPENSES (expenses that you pay each year as a percentage of the value of your investment) PORTFOLIO TURNOVER <tt>Below Investment Grade Securities Risk -- Fixed income securities rated below<br />investment grade (junk bonds) involve greater risks of default or downgrade and<br />are more volatile than investment grade securities because the prospect for<br />repayment of principal and interest of many of these securities is speculative.<br /> <br />Call Risk -- Issuers of callable bonds may call (redeem) securities with higher<br />coupons or interest rates before their maturity dates. The Fund may be forced to<br />reinvest the unanticipated proceeds at lower interest rates, resulting in a<br />decline in the Fund's income. Bonds may be called due to falling interest rates<br />or non-economical circumstances.<br /> <br />Credit Risk -- The Fund could lose money if the issuer or guarantor of a<br />portfolio security or a counterparty to a contract fails to make timely payment<br />or otherwise honor its obligations. If the Fund purchases securities supported<br />by credit enhancements from banks and other financial institutions, changes in<br />the credit quality of these institutions could cause losses to the Fund and<br />affect its share price.<br /> <br />Extension Risk -- The risk that rising interest rates may extend the duration of<br />a fixed income security, typically reducing the security's value.<br /> <br />Fixed Income Market Risk -- The prices of the Fund's fixed income securities<br />respond to economic developments, particularly interest rate changes, as well <br />as to perceptions about the creditworthiness of individual issuers, including<br />governments and their agencies. In addition, the Fund is subject to the risk<br />that tax-exempt fixed income securities may underperform other fixed income<br />market segments or the fixed income markets as a whole.<br /> <br />Interest Rate Risk -- The risk that the value of fixed income securities will<br />fall due to rising interest rates.<br />&#xA0;&#xA0;<br />Liquidity Risk -- The risk that certain securities may be difficult or impossible<br />to sell at the time and the price that the Fund would like. The Fund may have to<br />lower the price, sell other securities instead or forego an investment<br />opportunity, any of which could have a negative effect on Fund management or<br />performance.<br /> <br />Municipal Securities Risk -- State and local governments rely on taxes and, to<br />some extent, revenues from private projects financed by municipal securities, <br />to pay interest and principal on municipal debt. Poor statewide or local <br />economic results or changing political sentiments may reduce tax revenues and <br />increase the expenses of municipal issuers, making it more difficult for them <br />to meet their obligations. Actual or perceived erosion of the creditworthiness <br />of municipal issuers may reduce the value of the Fund's holdings. As a result, <br />the Fund will be more susceptible to factors that adversely affect issuers of<br />municipal obligations than a mutual fund that does not have as great a<br />concentration in municipal obligations. Also, there may be economic or political<br />changes that impact the ability of issuers of municipal securities to repay<br />principal and to make interest payments on securities owned by the Fund. Any<br />changes in the financial condition of municipal issuers may also adversely<br />affect the value of the Fund's securities.<br /> <br />Prepayment Risk -- The risk that, with declining interest rates, fixed income<br />securities with stated interest rates may have the principal paid earlier than<br />expected, requiring the Fund to invest the proceeds at generally lower interest<br />rates.<br /> <br />Taxation Risk -- The Fund may invest a portion of its assets in securities that<br />generate income that is subject to federal, state and local income tax, including <br />the federal alternative minimum tax.<br /> <br />Loss of money is a risk of investing in the Fund.</tt> Fees and Expenses Principal Investment Strategies <tt>The bar chart and the performance table below provide some indication of the<br />risks of investing in the Fund by showing changes in the Fund's performance <br />from year to year for the past ten calendar years and by showing how the <br />Fund's average annual returns for 1, 5 and 10 years, and since the Fund's <br />inception, compared with those of a broad measure of market performance.

A rise in interest rates typically causes a<br />fall in the value of fixed income securities in which the Fund invests, while a<br />fall in interest rates typically causes a rise in the value of such securities.<br />During periods when interest rates are low, the Fund's yield (and total return)<br />also will be low and the income generated by the Fund may not be sufficient to<br />offset all or a significant portion of the Fund's expenses, which could impair<br />the Fund's ability to provide a positive yield and maintain a stable $1.00 share<br />price.<br /> <br />Municipal Securities Risk -- State and local governments rely on taxes and, to<br />some extent, revenues from private projects financed by municipal securities, <br />to pay interest and principal on municipal debt.

The Fund may be forced <br />to reinvest the unanticipated proceeds at lower interest rates, resulting in a<br />decline in the Fund's income. Bonds may be called due to falling interest rates<br />or non-economical circumstances.<br /> <br />Credit Risk -- The Fund could lose money if the issuer or guarantor of a<br />portfolio security or a counterparty to a contract fails to make timely payment<br />or otherwise honor its obligations. If the Fund purchases securities supported<br />by credit enhancements from banks and other financial institutions, changes in<br />the credit quality of these institutions could cause losses to the Fund and<br />affect its share price.<br /> <br />Extension Risk -- The risk that rising interest rates may extend the duration of<br />a fixed income security, typically reducing the security's value.<br /> <br />Fixed Income Market Risk -- The prices of the Fund's fixed income securities<br />respond to economic developments, particularly interest rate changes, as well as<br />to perceptions about the creditworthiness of individual issuers, including<br />governments and their agencies. In addition, the Fund is subject to the risk<br />that tax-exempt fixed income securities may underperform other fixed income<br />market segments or the fixed income markets as a whole.<br /> <br />Income Risk -- An investment in the Fund is subject to income risk, which is the<br />possibility that the Fund's yield will decline due to falling interest rates.<br /> <br />Interest Rate Risk -- The risk that the value of fixed income securities will<br />fall due to rising interest rates. A rise in interest rates typically causes a<br />fall in the value of fixed income securities in which the Fund invests, while a<br />fall in interest rates typically causes a rise in the value of such securities.<br />During periods when interest rates are low, the Fund's yield (and total return)<br />also will be low and the income generated by the Fund may not be sufficient to<br />offset all or a significant portion of the Fund's expenses, which could impair<br />the Fund's ability to provide a positive yield and maintain a stable $1.00 share<br />price.<br /> <br />Municipal Securities Risk -- State and local governments rely on taxes and, to<br />some extent, revenues from private projects financed by municipal securities, <br />to pay interest and principal on municipal debt. Poor statewide or local <br />economic results or changing political sentiments may reduce tax revenues and <br />increase the expenses of municipal issuers, making it more difficult for them <br />to meet their obligations. Actual or perceived erosion of the creditworthiness <br />of municipal issuers may reduce the value of the Fund's holdings. As a result, <br />the Fund will be more susceptible to factors that adversely affect issuers of<br />municipal obligations than a mutual fund that does not have as great a<br />concentration in municipal obligations. Also, there may be economic or political<br />changes that impact the ability of issuers of municipal securities to repay<br />principal and to make interest payments on securities owned by the Fund. Any<br />changes in the financial condition of municipal issuers may also adversely<br />affect the value of the Fund's securities.<br /> <br />Prepayment Risk -- The risk that, with declining interest rates, fixed income<br />securities with stated interest rates may have the principal paid earlier than<br />expected, requiring the Fund to invest the proceeds at generally lower interest<br />rates.<br />&#xA0;&#xA0;<br />Redemption Risk -- The Fund may experience periods of heavy redemptions that<br />could cause the Fund to liquidate its assets at inopportune times or at a loss<br />or depressed value, particularly during periods of declining or illiquid<br />markets. This could have a significant adverse effect on the Fund's ability to<br />maintain a stable $1.00 share price, and, in extreme circumstances, could cause<br />the Fund to suspend redemptions and liquidate completely.<br /> <br />Taxation Risk -- The Fund may invest a portion of its assets in securities that<br />generate income that is subject to federal, state and local income tax,<br />including the federal alternative minimum tax.<br /> <br />An investment in the Fund is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit<br />Insurance Corporation (FDIC) or any other government agency.

Investment Goal The Fund's past performance (before and after taxes) is not necessarily an indication of how the Fund will perform in the future. Loss of money is a risk of 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: 0.16 Your actual after-tax returns will depend on your tax situation and may differ from those shown. After-tax returns shown are not relevant to investors who hold their Fund shares through tax-deferred arrangements, such as 401(k) plans or individual retirement accounts.

The Fund may be forced to<br />reinvest the unanticipated proceeds at lower interest rates, resulting in a<br />decline in the Fund's income. Bonds may be called due to falling interest rates<br />or non-economical circumstances.<br /> <br />Credit Risk -- The Fund could lose money if the issuer or guarantor of a<br />portfolio security or a counterparty to a contract fails to make timely payment<br />or otherwise honor its obligations.

In addition, the Fund is subject to the risk<br />that tax-exempt fixed income securities may underperform other fixed income<br />market segments or the fixed income markets as a whole.<br /> <br />Interest Rate Risk -- The risk that the value of fixed income securities will<br />fall due to rising interest rates.<br /> <br />Liquidity Risk -- The risk that certain securities may be difficult or impossible<br />to sell at the time and the price that the Fund would like. The Fund may have to<br />lower the price, sell other securities instead or forego an investment<br />opportunity, any of which could have a negative effect on Fund management or<br />performance.<br /> <br />Municipal Securities Risk -- State and local governments rely on taxes and, to<br />some extent, revenues from private projects financed by municipal securities, <br />to pay interest and principal on municipal debt. Poor statewide or local economic <br />results or changing political sentiments may reduce tax revenues and increase the <br />expenses of municipal issuers, making it more difficult for them to meet their <br />obligations. Actual or perceived erosion of the creditworthiness of municipal <br />issuers may reduce the value of the Fund's holdings. As a result, the Fund will <br />be more susceptible to factors that adversely affect issuers of municipal <br />obligations than a mutual fund that does not have as great a concentration in <br />municipal obligations. Also, there may be economic or political changes that <br />impact the ability of issuers of municipal securities to repay principal and to <br />make interest payments on securities owned by the Fund. Any changes in the <br />financial condition of municipal issuers may also adversely affect the value of <br />the Fund's securities.<br /> <br />New Jersey Investment Risk -- The Fund's performance will be affected by the<br />fiscal and economic health of the State of New Jersey, its political<br />subdivisions, municipalities, agencies and authorities and political and<br />regulatory developments affecting New Jersey municipal issuers.<br /> <br />Non-Diversified Risk -- The Fund is non-diversified, which means that it may<br />invest in the securities of relatively few issuers. As a result, the Fund may <br />be more susceptible to a single adverse economic or political occurrence affecting<br />one or more of these issuers and may experience increased volatility due to its<br />investments in those securities.<br /> <br />Prepayment Risk -- The risk that, with declining interest rates, fixed income<br />securities with stated interest rates may have the principal paid earlier than<br />expected, requiring the Fund to invest the proceeds at generally lower interest<br />rates.<br /> <br />Taxation Risk -- The Fund may invest a portion of its assets in securities that<br />generate income that is subject to federal, state and local income tax, including <br />the federal alternative minimum tax.<br /> <br />Loss of money is a risk of investing in the Fund.</tt> Fees and Expenses Principal Investment Strategies <tt>The bar chart and the performance table below provide some indication of the<br />risks of investing in the Fund by showing changes in the Fund's performance from<br />year to year for the past ten calendar years and by showing how the Fund's<br />average annual returns for 1, 5 and 10 years, and since the Fund's inception,<br />compared with those of a broad measure of market performance.

The Fund may be forced to<br />reinvest the unanticipated proceeds at lower interest rates, resulting in a<br />decline in the Fund's income. Bonds may be called due to falling interest rates<br />or non-economical circumstances.<br /> <br />Credit Risk -- The Fund could lose money if the issuer or guarantor of a<br />portfolio security or a counterparty to a contract fails to make timely payment<br />or otherwise honor its obligations. If the Fund purchases securities supported<br />by credit enhancements from banks and other financial institutions, changes in<br />the credit quality of these institutions could cause losses to the Fund and<br />affect its share price.<br /> <br />Extension Risk -- The risk that rising interest rates may extend the duration <br />of a fixed income security, typically reducing the security's value.<br /> <br />Fixed Income Market Risk -- The prices of the Fund's fixed income securities<br />respond to economic developments, particularly interest rate changes, as well <br />as to perceptions about the creditworthiness of individual issuers, including<br />governments and their agencies. In addition, the Fund is subject to the risk<br />that tax-exempt fixed income securities may underperform other fixed income<br />market segments or the fixed income markets as a whole.<br /> <br />Interest Rate Risk -- The risk that the value of fixed income securities will<br />fall due to rising interest rates.<br /> <br />Liquidity Risk -- The risk that certain securities may be difficult or impossible<br />to sell at the time and the price that the Fund would like. The Fund may have to<br />lower the price, sell other securities instead or forego an investment opportunity, <br />any of which could have a negative effect on Fund management or performance.<br /> <br />Municipal Securities Risk -- State and local governments rely on taxes and, to<br />some extent, revenues from private projects financed by municipal securities, <br />to pay interest and principal on municipal debt. Poor statewide or local <br />economic results or changing political sentiments may reduce tax revenues and <br />increase the expenses of municipal issuers, making it more difficult for them <br />to meet their obligations. Actual or perceived erosion of the creditworthiness <br />of municipal issuers may reduce the value of the Fund's holdings. As a result, <br />the Fund will be more susceptible to factors that adversely affect issuers of<br />municipal obligations than a mutual fund that does not have as great a<br />concentration in municipal obligations.

Performance Information The bar chart and the performance table below provide some indication of the risks of investing in the Fund by showing changes in the Fund's performance from year to year for the past eight calendar years and by showing how the Fund's average annual returns for 1 and 5 years, and since the Fund's inception, compared with those of a broad measure of market performance. <tt>Best Quarter: 1.51% (12/31/08)<br /> <br />Worst Quarter: -0.26% (06/30/04)<br /> <br />The Fund's Class A total return (pre-tax) from January 1, 2012 <br />to September 30, 2012 was 0.79%.</tt> 1-800-DIAL-SEI ANNUAL FUND OPERATING EXPENSES (expenses that you pay each year as a percentage of the value of your investment) PORTFOLIO TURNOVER <tt>Call Risk -- Issuers of callable bonds may call (redeem) securities with higher<br />coupons or interest rates before their maturity dates. The Fund may be forced to<br />reinvest the unanticipated proceeds at lower interest rates, resulting in a<br />decline in the Fund's income. Bonds may be called due to falling interest rates<br />or non-economical circumstances.<br /> <br />Credit Risk -- The Fund could lose money if the issuer or guarantor of a<br />portfolio security or a counterparty to a contract fails to make timely payment<br />or otherwise honor its obligations. If the Fund purchases securities supported<br />by credit enhancements from banks and other financial institutions, changes in<br />the credit quality of these institutions could cause losses to the Fund and<br />affect its share price.<br /> <br />Extension Risk -- The risk that rising interest rates may extend the duration of<br />a fixed income security, typically reducing the security's value.<br /> <br />Fixed Income Market Risk -- The prices of the Fund's fixed income securities<br />respond to economic developments, particularly interest rate changes, as well as<br />to perceptions about the creditworthiness of individual issuers, including<br />governments and their agencies. In addition, the Fund is subject to the risk<br />that tax-exempt fixed income securities may underperform other fixed income<br />market segments or the fixed income markets as a whole.<br /> <br />Interest Rate Risk -- The risk that the value of fixed income securities will<br />fall due to rising interest rates.<br /> <br />Liquidity Risk -- The risk that certain securities may be difficult or impossible<br />to sell at the time and the price that the Fund would like. The Fund may have to<br />lower the price, sell other securities instead or forego an investment opportunity, <br />any of which could have a negative effect on Fund management or performance.<br /> <br />Municipal Securities Risk -- State and local governments rely on taxes and, to<br />some extent, revenues from private projects financed by municipal securities, <br />to pay interest and principal on municipal debt. Poor statewide or local economic <br />results or changing political sentiments may reduce tax revenues and increase the <br />expenses of municipal issuers, making it more difficult for them to meet their <br />obligations. Actual or perceived erosion of the creditworthiness of municipal <br />issuers may reduce the value of the Fund's holdings. As a result, the Fund will be <br />more susceptible to factors that adversely affect issuers of municipal obligations <br />than a mutual fund that does not have as great a concentration in municipal <br />obligations. Also, there may be economic or political changes that impact the ability <br />of issuers of municipal securities to repay principal and to make interest payments <br />on securities owned by the Fund. Any changes in the financial condition of municipal <br />issuers may also adversely affect the value of the Fund's securities.<br /> <br />Prepayment Risk -- The risk that, with declining interest rates, fixed income<br />securities with stated interest rates may have the principal paid earlier than<br />expected, requiring the Fund to invest the proceeds at generally lower interest<br />rates.<br /><br />Taxation Risk -- The Fund may invest a portion of its assets in securities that<br />generate income that is subject to federal, state and local income tax,<br />including the federal alternative minimum tax.<br /> <br />Loss of money is a risk of investing in the Fund.</tt> Fees and Expenses Principal Investment Strategies <tt>The bar chart and the performance table below provide some indication of the<br />risks of investing in the Fund by showing changes in the Fund's performance from<br />year to year for the past eight calendar years and by showing how the Fund's<br />average annual returns for 1 and 5 years, and since the Fund's inception,<br />compared with those of a broad measure of market performance. The Fund's past<br />performance (before and after taxes) is not necessarily an indication of how the<br />Fund will perform in the future.
