The performance data quoted represent past performance and are net of all fees and expenses, including the estimated expense ratio of the underlying mutual funds and the Program Manager Fee. Past performance is not a guarantee of future results. Your returns and the principal value of your Account will fluctuate so your investment may be worth more or less than the original value when you withdraw your money. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted above.

1 All performance figures in the table, with the exception of the performance figures in the Year-to-Date column, represent the average annual compound rate of total return. All figures in the Year-to-Date column represent cumulative, non-annualized returns.

2 Beneficiaries are moved from one Age Band to the next Age Band on the first "rolling date" following their fourth, eighth, twelfth, fifteenth and eighteenth birthdays. The "rolling dates" are March 20, June 20, September 20 and December 20 (or the first business day thereafter).

3 The Blended Indexes are customized benchmarks that combine the fund benchmarks of each underlying mutual fund held in an investment option (other than the Principal Plus Interest Option) according to the investment option's asset allocation during the relevant time period. The Blended Indexes are used to compare the performance of the corresponding investment option. They are unmanaged and do not reflect the deduction of any fees or expenses.

4 These Investments have limited operating histories, so the returns cited above may not be a good indication of how they may perform over a longer time period.

5 Effective August 1, 2011, the Direct Plan Manager and the Connecticut Higher Education Trust Program Trustee have agreed to voluntarily waive the Money Market Option's Direct Plan Manager Fee and Administrative Fee, respectively, as necessary in an attempt to maintain at least a 0.00% return for the Money Market Option. The Direct Plan Manager and the Connecticut Higher Education Trust Program Trustee may discontinue the waiver at any time without notice. Please note that after the waivers, the net return for the Money Market Option may still be negative. The performance data shown for the Money Market Option is net of all waivers then in effect.
