(CFI) Current Investment Options are offered by the State Treasurer of North Carolina; State Employee's Credit Union (SECU) and The Vanguard Group, Inc. (Vanguard).

The availability of tax benefits may be contingent on meeting other requirements. Accounts are not bank or credit union deposits and are not insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA). Neither the Contributions nor the earnings thereon invested in a Program Account are backed by the full faith and credit of the State of North Carolina or guaranteed by the Authority, CFI, SECU, or Vanguard.

The value of a Participant's Account will fluctuate depending on the market conditions and the performance of the Investment Option selected. You could lose money by investing in the Program. Participants assume all responsibility for federal and state tax consequences.
