MI 529 Advisor Plan

TIAA U.S. Small Cap Portfolio

CUSIP: 59319K412  /  Inception date: 06/12/20


These investment portfolios are each invested solely in either shares of a single underlying fund or a Funding Agreement. For those investment portfolios invested in an underlying fund, their performance is entirely reliant on the performance of that underlying fund and may be more volatile than the age-based investment portfolios or the multi-fund investment portfolios. You should be aware that participants do not own shares of the underlying funds directly. This option may be good for people who are interested in specific individual funds such as equity index, money market or social fund options.

Returns quoted represent past performance which is no guarantee of future results. Investment returns and principal value will fluctuate so that when shares are redeemed, they may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be higher or lower than the performance shown. Total returns for a period of less than one year are cumulative. Returns without sales charges would be lower if the sales charges were included. Returns assume reinvestment of dividends and capital gains.

Average annual total returns shown "with sales charges" are net of the following: (1) the current annual program management fee of 0.32% of plan portfolio assets; (2) the current annual service fees of 0.25% (not applicable for Class I) and distribution fees (Class C only) of 0.75% for enrollment year and target risk portfolios or 0.40% for individual and multi-fund portfolios; (3) initial sales charges up to 4.25% (Class A) or 1.00% CDSC for periods one year or less (Class C); and (4) annual expenses of the share classes of the underlying mutual funds in which Plan portfolios invest, currently up to 0.81% of assets, which may vary. The Principal Plus Interest Portfolio does not charge an initial sales charge nor does it assess an annual sales fee; the program management fee is currently waived for the portfolio. Plan fees, expenses and sales charges are subject to change. Underlying fund expenses will vary and in some cases have been reduced by fee and expense waivers or reimbursements, which may be ended at any time reducing future performance.
