2 What Does the Future Hold? As soon as your child is born, you begin imagining what the future will hold. You await the first word, watch for the first step. As your child grows, you note what interests them, what they do well, and try to envision what career they might pursue. Whatever that career, it s likely to require a college degree. So as your child takes the first steps toward the future, it s important you take the first steps toward seeing that a college education can be part of it. College can be expensive. That s why the state of New Jersey has joined with Franklin Templeton Investments to offer NJBEST 529 College Savings Plan specifically for New Jersey residents. 1 By taking advantage of Section 529 of the Internal Revenue Code, NJBEST offers you a number of features and benefits that can make saving for a college education much easier. The Future Holds More for College Graduates A college education is an investment in your child s future that pays handsomely college graduates on average earn 76% more per year than high school graduates. Over a lifetime, that difference amounts to more than $1.2 million in earnings. 2 People who hold advanced degrees can earn even more clear evidence of the lifelong value of a college education. Average Earnings in 2013, Based on Level of Education 2 $27,508 $35,309 $43,063 $62,048 $76,637 New Jersey Higher Education Student Assistance Authority (HESAA) HESAA s mission is to provide students and families with investment options and informational resources that can enable students to pursue their education beyond high school.

3 A College Education Is Expensive If paying for your child s college education is your goal, you ll need to plan well in advance. College education expenses have climbed over 5% annually during the past 10 years, more than 1.5x our nation s inflation rate. That means a child born today could need over $215,000 to attend a four-year public college in 2035, more than triple today s college costs. 3 Invest for College Now or Borrow Later? Let s look at a hypothetical example of investing now vs. borrowing later. You could wait until your child is 18 years old and borrow the money, paying interest for at least 15 years. Or, when your child is born you could begin investing $510 monthly in a tax-advantaged investment earning a hypothetical 7% annual return before taxes and investment expenses. In this example, you save about $190,000 by investing now, rather than borrowing later. 4 How Much Will It Cost? 3 Projected Average Cost for Four Years of College Public College Private College Today $81,928 $181,322 5 Years $111,252 $235, Years $143,562 $292, Years $185,254 $363, Years $215,877 $414,127 Invest or Borrow?

4 Saving for College Doesn t Have to Be Taxing You may be like many parents who can t imagine being able to save enough for college. You may be tempted to give up on the possibility altogether or choose to go into debt to pay for your children s higher education. But it is possible to save a significant amount over time; and the earlier you begin, the better off you ll be because of tax-free compounding. Benefits of Tax-Free Compounding over Time With Investments of $150/month $64,985 $54,208 n Taxable Account n Tax-Free Account $41,262 $47,822 $23,762 $26,114 $10,322 $10,802 5 Years 10 Years 15 Years 18 Years The hypothetical illustration is based on a constant monthly investment of $150; assumes a 7% annual fixed rate of return, compounded monthly; and a 25% federal income tax applied at the end of each year for the taxable account. Examples are for illustrative purposes only and are not representative of any particular investment. This chart does not take into account investment expenses, which if reflected, would lower the results shown. Investments do not guarantee any specific rate of return, and you may have a gain or a loss on the amount invested. Periodic investments do not assure a profit or protect against loss in declining markets. Our son is only in preschool now but with the rising cost of a college education, it s important for our family to invest in his future now. 2 NJBEST New Jersey s 529 College Savings Plan NJBEST.com

5 New Jersey s 529 College Savings Plan NJBEST 529 College Savings Plan can be an advantageous way to invest for college. The program offers maximum flexibility and investment diversification to fit the needs of almost any investor. Here are just a few features and benefits you can enjoy as an NJBEST account owner. 5 Smart Benefits Smart Tax Advantages Control over Plan Assets As plan owner, you maintain control over how and when plan assets will be spent for higher education expenses. If the beneficiary you ve saved for decides not to go to college, you can use the funds to educate another family member. Potential College Scholarship of up to $1,500 Students at New Jersey colleges and universities can receive a tax-free scholarship whose value depends on time and investment in the plan. 6 All Accredited Colleges and Universities Are Available Plan assets can be used at any accredited college, not just colleges or universities in New Jersey. Admissions are not guaranteed by the 529 plan. Won t Interfere with New Jersey Financial Aid The first $25,000 in savings will be excluded from the criteria used to determine eligibility for financial aid awarded by the state of New Jersey. Low Contribution Requirement You can open an NJBEST plan with as little as $25. High Contribution Limit Contributions can be made until the plan value for a beneficiary is $305,000. No Income Restrictions You can open a plan regardless of how much you earn.

Special Gift and Estate Tax Treatment A contribution in one year of up to $70,000 (or $140,000 if a married couple) to a single beneficiary is generally excludable for federal gift and estate tax purposes if the contributor makes no further gifts to the beneficiary for five years. Tax benefits are conditioned on meeting certain requirements. Federal income tax, a 10% federal tax penalty, and state income tax and penalties may apply to nonqualified withdrawals of earnings. Generation-skipping tax may apply to substantial transfers to a beneficiary at least two generations below the contributor. Gift examples are general; individual financial circumstances and state laws vary consult a tax advisor before investing. If the contributor dies within the five-year period, a prorated portion of contributions may be included in their taxable estate. See the Investor Handbook for more complete information. 529 plans have risks which cause investment return and principal value to fluctuate, these can include risks of stocks; bonds, including lower-rated; and foreign investing, especially in developing markets. These and other risks are discussed in the Investor Handbook. 5. Please read the Investor Handbook for more information. 6.

6 Smart Investment Options When you open an NJBEST plan, you get experienced and knowledgeable management of your assets from Franklin Templeton Investments, providing a variety of investment options designed to help you pursue your college savings goals. 7 You may choose to invest among as many of the following portfolios as you d like, as long as the total allocation equals 100%. Age-Based Asset Allocations Pursue your goals by choosing an age-based asset allocation track suitable for you conservative, moderate or growth. Your investments will be placed in a portfolio within the asset allocation you choose based on the beneficiary s age. As your beneficiary ages, the age-based asset allocations are designed to move into plan portfolios that invest less in equity-based funds (which have more stocks) and more into conservative, income-seeking funds (such as bond and money-market funds). By the time college is around the corner, a greater proportion of your assets will be in more conservative, lower-risk investments.

A few words about risk. 529 plan underlying funds have risks that will cause your investment return and principal value to fluctuate. Stocks tend to fluctuate dramatically over the short term. Bond prices generally move opposite to interest rates; as bond prices adjust to a rise in interest rates, a fund s share price may decline. High-yield, lower-rated bonds generally have greater price swings and higher default risks. Foreign investing, especially in developing markets, has additional risks such as currency and market volatility and political or social instability. These and other risks are discussed in each fund s prospectus. Investors should carefully consider plan investment goals, risks, charges and expenses before investing. To obtain the Investor Handbook, which contains this and other information, call Franklin Templeton Distributors, Inc., the manager and underwriter for the plan, at (877) 4NJ-BEST or visit NJBEST.com. You should read the Investor Handbook carefully before investing and consider whether your or the account beneficiary s home state offers any state tax or other benefits that are only available for investments in its qualified tuition program. You should note that: (i) depending upon the laws of the home state of the 529 plan account owner, third-party contributor or beneficiary, favorable state tax treatment or other benefits offered by such home state for investing in qualified tuition programs may be available only for investments in such home state s qualified tuition program; (ii) any state-based benefit offered with respect to a particular qualified tuition program should be one of many appropriately weighted factors to be considered in making an investment decision; and (iii) you should consult with your financial, tax or other advisor to learn more about how state-based benefits (including any limitations) would apply to your specific circumstances; you may also wish to contact the home state of the account owner, third-party contributor and/or beneficiary, as applicable, or any other qualified tuition program to learn more about the features, benefits and limitations of that state s qualified tuition program.
