Before selecting a 529 college savings account, it’s important to review all your investment choices and evaluate their performance. The performance of an investment is the measurement of the change in the investment’s value – up or down – over time. The charts below reflect total return and average annual return for each portfolio within The Education Plan®.



The performance data quoted represents past performance, which does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's units, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted.
1. The Plan Manager and the Board have agreed to voluntarily waive the Program Management Fee and Administrative Fee, respectively (but, in neither case, not below zero) and/or reimburse expenses to the extent necessary to assist the Short Term Yield Portfolio in attempting to maintain at least a 0.00% return. There is no guarantee that the Short Term Yield Portfolio will maintain this return. This undertaking may be amended or withdrawn at any time.
2. Performance data for each Portfolio is based on the total return of a hypothetical account, including reinvestment of dividends and distributions, net of The Education Plan program and administration fees.
3. Since inception returns of less than 12 months are cumulative returns. Since inception returns of greater than 12 months are annualized returns based upon a true day count and a 365-day/year calculation.
4. Expense ratios for each of the portfolios include underlying investment expenses and plan fees.
5. If applicable, the "Net Expense Ratio" for the Portfolios takes into account a voluntary expense limitation on the underlying investment without which performance would have been less. These undertakings may be modified or terminated at any time. Please see the Plan Description for more detailed information regarding any applicable expense limitations or waivers
