You could lose money by investing in a portfolio which includes the State Street Institutional Treasury Money Market Fund (the “underlying fund”). Although the money market fund in which your investment option invests (the “underlying fund”) seeks to preserve its value at $1.00 per share, the underlying fund cannot guarantee it will do so. An investment in this investment option is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. The underlying fund’s sponsor has no legal obligation to provide financial support to the underlying fund, and you should not expect that the sponsor will provide financial support to the underlying fund at any time.
Investment returns are not guaranteed, and you could lose money by investing in the SSGA Upromise 529. Investments in bonds are subject to interest rate, credit, and inflation risk.
Note: Under the federal tax rules governing all 529 plans, you may reallocate your investment twice per calendar year or when you change the beneficiary on an account to a qualifying member of the family without incurring federal income tax or penalties. You may change how your future contributions are allocated at any time.
