1 Upromise GoalSaver Accounts are offered through Sallie Mae Bank, Member FDIC.

2 10% Annual Match will post to Upromise GoalSaver Account(s) in the form of interest payments and is subject to taxable income rules. To be eligible for the 10% annual match on your Upromise earnings from Upromise, you must link your Upromise GoalSaver Account to your Upromise Rewards Account and either: 1. Within 90 days of opening your Upromise GoalSaver Account, make your first of at least 10 credit/deposit transactions, initiated from your Upromise GoalSaver Account, into the Upromise GoalSaver Account and complete at least 10 credit/deposit transactions, initiated from your Upromise GoalSaver Accoun, within the anniversary year or 2. Within 90 days of opening your Upromise GoalSaver Account, fund your Upromise GoalSaver Account with $5,000 or more and maintain an average daily balance of $5,000 or more during the 12 months from account opening. Should you fail to meet the requirements during the anniversary year, you will have the opportunity to become eligible for the 10% match in additional years if, by your anniversary date, you (a) link your Upromise GoalSaver Account to your Upromise Rewards Account, and (b), you either meet the $5,000 average daily balance minimum funding requirement, or you meet the 10 Upromise GoalSaver Account initiated credit/deposit requirement in the anniversary year. If you qualify for the 10% match based on having the average daily balance of $5,000 in your Upromise GoalSaver Account, you must maintain that average balance in your Upromise GoalSaver Account for the duration of the anniversary year for which your transferred earnings will be matched. Once you complete the steps above, Upromise will match 10% of your Upromise earnings that you transfer from your Upromise Rewards Account into your Upromise GoalSaver Account during each anniversary year. Your match will be deposited into your Upromise GoalSaver Account within 60 days after your anniversary date, provided that both accounts remain active at time of transfer. Please refer to GoalSaver FAQs for additional information.

4 Before investing in any 529 plan, please consider whether your or the designated beneficiary's home state offers its taxpayers any benefits that are only available through that state's 529 plan. Investment objectives, risks, charges, expenses, and other important information are included in each 529 plan's offering statement; please read and consider it carefully before investing in a 529 plan.

When you invest in a 529 plan, you are purchasing municipal securities whose value may vary based on market conditions.

Account owners assume all investment risks as well as responsibility for any federal and state tax consequences. 529 savings plans are not FDIC insured, carry no bank guarantee and may lose value.

The availability of tax advantages or other benefits may be contingent on meeting other requirements. Please consult your financial, tax, or other advisors to learn more about how state-based benefits and limitations would apply to your specific circumstance.
