Customized Options: Static

How it works

The Customized Static investment option allows you to determine and create your own investment allocation using any combination of the available underlying funds.

Consult your financial advisor before investing. If you do not fully understand the decisions you are making by selecting the Customized Static investment option, you should consider whether this option is an appropriate choice.

This option will not change as your beneficiary ages, unless you request an investment option change. Money in the account will be rebalanced annually on your beneficiary’s birthday to bring the underlying investments back to the target allocation that you chose when you created this option.
