Shares of mutual funds and 529 college savings plans are not deposits or obligations of any bank, are not guaranteed by any bank, are not insured by the FDIC or any other agency, and involve investment risks, including the possible loss of the principal amount invested.

Before investing in any mutual fund or 529 college savings plan investors should carefully consider a fund’s or a 529 college savings plan’s investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses. Fund prospectuses and plan documents contain this and other information about the funds.

Some States offer favorable tax treatment to their residents only if they invest in the state’s own 529 college savings plan. You should consult your tax advisor.

*Distributions under the policy (including cash dividends and partial/full surrenders) are not subject to taxation up to the amount paid into the policy (the cost basis). If the policy is a Modified Endowment Contract, policy loans and/or distributions are taxable to the extent of gain and are subject to a 10% tax penalty. Access to cash values through borrowing or partial surrenders can reduce the policy’s cash value and death benefit, increase the chance the policy will lapse, and may result in a tax liability if the policy terminates before the death of the insured.
