Franklin Templeton 529 College Savings Plan offers multiple share classes. All share classes pay underlying fund expenses (currently up to 0.97% of assets) and the current annual program management fee of 0.25% of plan portfolio assets. Class A shares have an initial sales charge of up to 5.75% and an annual sales fee of 0.25%; Class B shares have a contingent deferred sales charge which is 4% in the first year, declining to 1% in the sixth year and eliminated thereafter and an annual sales fee of 1.00%; Class C shares have a 1% contingent deferred sales charge and a annual sales fee of 1.00%. The Franklin Money 529 Portfolio does not charge an initial sales charge nor does it assess and annual sales fee; the Program Management fee is currently waived for the portfolio.
