Stability of Principal Portfolio

Our stability of principal portfolio focuses on protecting the principal you invest. The Ameritas Principal Plus* investment portfolio provides for a guarantee of principal and a minimum contractual interest rate of 3.0% to the Trust. The rate of return is subject to change quarterly. The portfolio consists primarily of investment grade fixed-income securities having a short to intermediate duration. For the risk-averse, this is the Plan’s most conservative investment option.

Ameritas Principal Plus - DC 52925493585156

The Ameritas Principal Plus Account*, which is not a mutual fund, provides important guarantees of principal and interest. All contributions invested under this option are guaranteed to the Trust against principal loss as long as they remain invested in the Account. The guarantees are supported by the general account of Ameritas Life Insurance Corp. It is not anticipated that investors in the option will experience a loss of principal while invested in this Account, but the return from income is expected to fluctuate with longer-term fixed income securities.

* Formerly named Acacia Principal Plus. On July 1, 2014, Acacia Life Insurance Company merged with and into its parent company, Ameritas Life Insurance Corp.

The District of Columbia College Savings Trust Program Disclosure Booklet contains this and other information. Read it carefully before you invest or send money.

An investor should also consider, before investing, whether the investor's or designated beneficiary's home state offers any state tax or other benefits that are only available to residents of that state. An investment in another state’s 529 college savings plan may not offer comparable benefits.

The Government of the District of Columbia does not guarantee investments in the program. Investment involves risk, including possible loss of principal.
