NextGen is a Section 529 plan administered by the Finance Authority of Maine (FAME).Before you invest in NextGen, request a NextGen Program Description from your Maine distribution agent or Merrill Lynch financial advisor, or call Merrill Edge at (877) 4-NEXTGEN and read it carefully. The Program Description contains more complete information, including investment objectives, charges, expenses and risks of investing in NextGen, which you should carefully consider before investing. You also should consider whether your or your designated beneficiary's home state offers any state tax or other benefits that are only available for investments in such state's 529 plan. Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated (Merrill Lynch), a registered broker-dealer, Member SIPC, is the program manager and underwriter.
NextGen is available to self-directed investors in the Client Direct Series or through financial advisors in the Client Select Series. Each series offers different investment options, each wtih its own sales charges, fees and expense structure. Expenses associated with the Client Direct Series will generally be lower than those associated with the Client Select Series. Currently some of the same investment options are available in each series.
Merrill Edge is the marketing name for two businesses: Merrill Edge Advisory Center, which offers team-based advice and guidance brokerage services; and a self-directed online investing platform. Both are made available through Merrill Lynch.
