The TD Ameritrade 529 College Savings Plan ("the Plan") is sponsored by the State of Nebraska and administered by the Nebraska State Treasurer. The plan offers a series of investment portfolios within the Nebraska Educational Savings Plan Trust ("the Trust"), which offers other investment portfolios not affiliated with the Plan. Nebraska Educational Savings Plan Trust serves as Issuer. The Plan is intended to operate as a qualified tuition program to be used only to save for qualified higher education expenses, pursuant to Section 529 of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code.

An investor should consider the Plan's Investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses before investing. The Program Disclosure Statement at, which contains more information, should be read carefully before investing.

Investors should consider whether their or their beneficiary's home state offers any state tax or other benefits that are only available for investments in such state's qualified tuition program and should consult their tax advisor, attorney and/or other advisor regarding their specific legal, investment or tax situation.

* The earnings portion (if any) of a Non-Qualified Withdrawal will be treated as ordinary income to the recipient and may also be subject to an additional 10% federal tax.

Diversification does not eliminate the risk of experiencing investment losses.
