NOTE: Annually, prior to September 1, investments in the Enrollment-based Portfolios are reallocated to the next appropriate Portfolio as the Designated Beneficiary nears enrollment in college. To accomplish this reallocation, the Portfolios do not use moneys contributed or redeemed to purchase or sell shares of the Underlying Investments until the next business day. This timing difference, depending on how the markets are moving, could cause the Portfolio’s performance to differ from the similarly managed Portfolio which did not experience the same shift in assets.

Contributions can be made until the value or total amount of contributions across all Nebraska program accounts for the beneficiary reaches $360,000.
