College costs can seem overwhelming but having a plan can help. In fact, parents with a plan save 76% more than parents who save without a plan.* 529 plans offer these benefits:

  • Fits your budget. Fits your schedule. Choose when, how and how much to contribute.
  • Any state. Any school. Use funds for accredited 2- and 4-year colleges, vocational/technical and graduate school, even K-12 private school tuition.
  • Anyone can open. Anyone can contribute. Grandparents, aunts, uncles and friends can open a 529 account or can contribute to a plan already established.
  • Save for college. Save on taxes. Funds grow tax-deferred and qualified withdrawals are tax free.

The availability of tax or other state benefits (such as financial aid, scholarship funds and protection from creditors) may be conditioned on meeting certain requirements, such as residency, purpose for or timing of distributions, or other factors.
