Two Investment Strategies
You can choose to invest in the Age Based Portfolios, the Choice Based Portfolios or a combination of the two.
Age Based Portfolios - Your account is placed in one of six portfolios-based on the beneficiary's age-and automatically adjusts over time. The investments are more aggressive when the beneficiary is younger, and grow more conservative as the beneficiary grows older.
Choice Based Portfolios - Investing in any of the four Choice Based portfolios means exercising more control over your account. You may choose the portfolio, or portfolios, that work(s) best for you.
Should your goals or needs change, under federal law you have the flexibility to change how previous contributions have been allocated among the available Portfolio options twice per calendar year.
