Age-based tracks: Save without the guesswork

Our age-based savings tracks are managed for you. They adjust automatically—making it easier for you to save for higher education.

When you choose 1 of our 4 age-based savings tracks your money is automatically moved from one investment to another within that track, gradually shifting from more aggressive (riskier) investments to more conservative investments as your child nears college age.

The 4 tracks you can invest in are Conservative Growth, Moderate Growth, Growth and Aggressive Growth. The track you choose and your child's current age determine how much of your investment is comprised of stocks, bonds or short-term reserves.

For instance if your child is 8 years old and you choose the Conservative Growth track, you will start out invested in 40% stocks and 60% bonds. As your child ages we will gradually shift your money so that when he or she is ready for college you will be invested in 75% bonds and 25% short-term reserves.
