1The Account Service Fee applies only to select accounts opened before 1/1/12 with household assets totaling less than $50,000 in assets held at NMIS. Accounts exempt from this fee include: Northwestern Mutual Cash Management Gold and Platinum, IRAs, qualified retirement plans, accounts that hold share classes that are designed specifically for employer-sponsored 529 plans, accounts invested solely in certain single-fund solutions, and accounts serviced by the Northwestern Mutual Client Service Center. For more information regarding the Account Service Fee, please contact your NMIS registered representative.

2NMIS reserves the right to assess a late payment fee, with a minimum of $10.00, for any trade paid after the date due. The charge will be calculated at the current margin interest rate beginning on settlement date. Late payment fees will be subject to a $10.00 minimum such that any fee calculated to equal $1.00-10.00 may be charged a flat $10.00. Amounts less than $1.00 may be waived. The interest period for late payments is the 16th of the month through the 15th of the following month. Charges are posted to the client's cash account on the same day margin interest is posted (second last business day of the month). IRA accounts, DVP accounts, and accounts with a margin balance are not subject to the late payment fee. Other accounts that accrue small interest amounts and/or that have no prior history of late payment, etc., may be waived by NMIS at NMIS's discretion.

3Clients will be assessed a Service Charge for the purchase of certain no- and low-load funds. A complete list of impacted fund families can be obtained by contacting your NMIS registered representative. The fee may not be applicable for certain ERISA accounts.
