The MFS 529 Savings Plan is a flexible college investing plan sponsored by the state of Oregon, acting by and through the Oregon 529 College Savings Board and is part of the Oregon 529 College Savings Network. MFS Fund Distributors, Inc. is the Program Manager. MFS 529 Savings Plan accounts are considered municipal fund securities.

Depending on your state of residence and the state of residence of the beneficiary, an investment in the MFS 529 Savings Plan may not afford you or your beneficiary state tax benefits or other benefits only available for investments in such state's qualified tuition program. See your tax advisor to be sure you understand the tax issues related to a 529 plan. Withdrawals of earnings not used to pay for qualified higher education expenses are subject to an additional 10% federal tax penalty. State taxes may also apply.

There is a $25 annual account fee associated with the MFS 529 Savings Plan. This annual fee is waived for Oregon residents and for those accounts with assets of $25,000 or more. Investments in 529 plans involve investment risks. You should consider your financial needs, goals, and risk tolerance prior to investing.

Before investing in the MFS 529 Savings Plan, consider the investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses.
