NAV Transfer/Rollover Program

Do your clients need a change? The Hartford offers the NAV Transfer/Rollover program for The Hartford SMART529

Program Highlights

Subject to the conditions below, the front-end load normally associated with Class A share purchases is waived when contributions from other 529 plans are rolled over to a 529 plan managed by The Hartford.


How to Participate

Firms that wish to participate in the NAV Transfer/Rollover Program must 1) have an executed Sales and Supervision Agreement, and 2) must then submit a signed NAV Transfer/Rollover Program Agreement. A firm's participation in the program is effective the first day of the month following receipt of the NAV Transfer/Rollover Program Agreement by The Hartford.


If rolling over from an in-state to an out-of-state 529 plan, some states may require the recapture of prior state tax deductions. Clients must also consider possible withdrawal charges by their existing plan, market value adjustments and differences in ongoing investment fees. As with all matters of a tax or legal nature, your clients should consult their own tax or legal counsel for advice.

Qualifying Transfers/Rollovers

rollovers must be received directly from the original plan.
rollovers must come into A share class to receive NAV pricing.
rollover assets are subject to an 18 month 1% Contingent Deferral Sales Charge (CDSC).
All subsequent contributions will be subject to the standard A share sales charge and CDSC schedules.


Commissions on Qualifying Rollovers

You will be paid a 1% up-front commission and standard trail commission for A share purchases. No other up-front commission will be paid on the transfer/rollover.

Please note: For firms that sign the NAV Transfer/Rollover Program Agreement, all transfer/rollovers into A Shares will be treated as part of the program for compensation purposes.

Refer to the current Offering Statement and the Sales and Supervision Agreement for additional details and requirements.



If you have any questions, please contact The Hartford at 1-800-456-PLAN (7526) Monday through Thursday, 8:15 AM to 7:00 PM and Friday 8:15 AM to 5:00 PM ET.
