A Prospectus Supplement filing for Wells Fargo Government Money Market Fund and Wells Fargo Treasury Plus Money Market Fund tells us, "At a meeting held on November 21-22, 2019, the Board of Trustees of Wells Fargo Funds Trust unanimously approved the elimination of the Sweep Class shares of the Funds. Effective at the close of business on November 22, 2019, the Sweep Class shares of the Funds are closed to investment. The elimination of the Sweep Class shares is expected to occur on or about November 29, 2019, upon the redemption in full of all assets in the Sweep Classes. After this date, all references to Sweep Class shares in the Funds' prospectus and SAI will be removed." Wells Fargo continues to offer a Sweep class on its 100% Treasury Money Market Funds (WFA10). According to our Brokerage Sweep Intelligence publication, Wells Fargo Advisors is paying 0.05% on brokerage sweep cash balances under $1 million, versus a yield of 0.92% for the Wells Fargo 100% US Treasury Sweep money market fund. (The latter is available only to select accounts.)
