Higher Earnings Expected Full-Time Lifetime Earnings Relative to High School Graduates, by Education Level Earnings Ratio Less than a High School Diploma High School Diploma Some College, No Degree Associate Degree Bachelor s Degree Education Level Master s Degree Doctoral Degree Professional Degree Source: The College Board, Education Pays Note: Based on the sum of median 2011 earnings for full-time year-round workers at each age from 25 to 64 for each education level. No allowance is made for the shorter work life resulting from time spent in college or out of the labor force for other reasons. Future earnings are discounted at a 3% annual rate to account for the reality that because of forgone interest, dollars received in the future are not worth as much as those received today. Discounting does not have a large impact on the lifetime earnings ratios. The calculations are illustrative and do not represent what individuals will actually earn in the future. Earnings ratios calculated using data from another year will likely yield slightly different results. For example, the earnings ratio of bachelor s degree recipients to high school graduates is 1.61 based on 2005 earnings data, 1.66 based on 2008 earnings data, and 1.65 based on 2011 earnings data.

4 How Edvest orks Edvest is a 529 college savings plan The number 529 refers to the federal tax code section that provides federal tax advantages for qualified tuition savings programs. 401(k) plans are named after a federal tax code section as well. A 401(k) plan helps you save for retirement. A 529 college savings plan helps you save for college. ho can Open an Account? The Edvest College Savings Plan is open to everyone. Parents, grandparents, friends and relatives at any income level can open an account for anyone. You can even open an account for yourself. Plus, more than one person can contribute to a single account. Minimum Contribution Open an account with as little a s $25 per investment portfolio, and make additional contributions of at least $25. If your employer allows payroll deductions, the minimum contribution is $15 per investment portfolio per pay period. Maximum Account Balance The lifetime maximum account balance limit per beneficiary is $330,000. An account may continue to grow beyond the maximum account balance limit, but no further contributions will be allowed. Starting Early can Help The more time your money has to grow, the more compounding can work in your favor. Opening an account when your loved one is a baby means that your money has up to 18 years to grow! Encourage Support From Others Grandparents, other relatives and friends may give your child gifts on birthdays and other occasions. Tell them you have opened an Edvest account for your child. Ask if they would be willing to give just a small toy or book, for example, and use the rest as a cash contribution toward college savings. Even Small Contributions can be Meaningful Any amount of money that you add to your account each month, even the minimum, can lead to a stronger future for your child. $100,000 60,000 Monthly Contribution $50 $100 $200 20, Years 12 Years 18 Years Years of Accumulation This hypothetical example illustrates the future values of different regular monthly investments for different time periods and assumes an annual investment return of 6% with an initial investment of $5,000. It is presented for illustrative purposes and does not reflect actual performances or predict future results of Edvest. It does not reflect the benefits of any isconsin or federal tax benefits or withdrawals. 4 Edvest.com (888)

5 Edvest Offers Tax Advantages Save on Federal and State Taxes Contributions to the Edvest College Savings Plan may reduce a isconsin resident s state taxable income each year*. Plus, any account earnings will be free from federal and isconsin state income tax, provided withdrawals are used for qualified higher education expenses. Limitations, restrictions and/or recapture provisions may apply. See the Disclosure Booklet for details. Federal Estate and Gift Tax Benefits Contributions to Edvest may reduce the taxable value of your estate. For example, money placed in a grandchild s Edvest account, together with all the other gifts you give that grandchild in one year, may qualify for an annual federal gift tax exclusion of $14,000. Ask your tax advisor about your own situation. Couples filing jointly can contribute up to $140,000 per child and take advantage of up to five years worth of tax-free gifts at one time ($70,000 for individual filers). Completed gifts are removed from your estate for tax purposes, so your investment goes toward a child s education, not taxes. Consult your tax advisor about your situation. O ebsite Tip!

7 Investment Options You can direct your contributions to any one or a combination of Edvest s 22 investment options. These vary in investment strategy and degree of risk, so you can choose an option or combination of options that s right for you. hy Risk is Important Each investment portfolio has its own risks. Investments in growth stocks may be more volatile than other securities. Fixed income investing poses credit and interest risks; when interest rates rise, bond prices generally fall and the underlying fund s share price can fall. Investment returns over your investment period could be lower than the rate of increase in higher education costs. International investing involves special risks currency, political, social and economic. You could lose all or part of the value of your account. Edvest Offers Broad Categories of Investment Options Two Age-Based Investment Options including an Aggressive Option. There are nine age bands in each Age-Based Investment Option, which automatically shift to a more conservative risk level as the beneficiary gets older. Multi-Fund Investment Portfolios. Five index-based portfolios. Five active-based portfolios. Re-examine your Edvest account if: Your goals, time period for college investing or personal financial situation change. Long-term changes in the economy will affect how you save or invest. The balance in your account changes significantly due to varying performance of different investment portfolios. You can transfer from one portfolio to another twice per calendar year. You can transfer money among portfolios if you are changing the beneficiary of the account. Single Fund Investment Options Eight static portfolios that do not automatically shift allocations. Bank CD Option. Principal Plus Interest Option. 7 Edvest.com (888)

8 Choose Your Own Investment Strategy Age-based investments are very popular, but if you prefer to construct your own asset allocation, you can pick investment portfolios that more directly match your tolerance for risk, your time horizon or other factors. Unlike the Age-Based Options, however, your unique investment allocation won t automatically change as the child ages. The more you invest and the earlier you start the more opportunity your money has to grow. Calculate how much you need to save. Set your goals. Set up an automatic contribution plan (ACP) and have your contributions electronically sent from your bank account to your Edvest account. Contribute through payroll deduction if your employer offers it. 8 Edvest.com (888)

9 Age-Based Investment Options Contributions to the Age-Based Options will be placed in one of nine age bands (depending upon the age of your beneficiary), each of which has a different investment objective and investment strategy. As the child gets closer to college, assets are automatically shifted to a more conservative allocation. Edvest offers both an Age-Based Investment Option and an Aggressive Age-Based Investment Option. Allocations for the Age-Based Investment Option are illustrated below. The Aggressive Age-Based Investment Option has similar allocations except each age band will invest a larger percentage of its assets in mutual funds that invest primarily in equity securities (including real estate securities) and a smaller percentage in mutual funds that invest primarily in debt securities.
