The Education Plan offers a practical way of approaching education savings. Plan highlights include:

  • Streamlined portfolio options: Our enhanced investment menu features fewer, yet more diversified options. Enrollment year-based portfolios help make choosing a suitable investment strategy easier.
  • Expertise: Ascensus College Savings Recordkeeping Services, LLC (Ascensus College Savings) manages The Education Plan. With over 4.5 million accounts administered, Ascensus brings a wealth of experience to help improve your saving experience.
  • Lower cost: Our total asset-based fees are just 0.10-0.44%.
  • Gifting opportunities: We offer access to Ugift and Upromise. Ugift allows you to easily and securely share your 529 plan account information with family, friends and coworkers, giving them the opportunity to make gift contributions online. Upromise lets members earn back a percentage of qualified spending, which can be deposited into their 529 account.
  • Flexibility: you can open an account with just $1 and contribute what you want, when you want. Account changes, contributions and withdrawals are easy to manage online and beneficiaries and ownership are transferable.

For more information about The Education Plan, call 1.877.337.5268 or view the Plan Description and Participation Agreement, which includes investment objectives, risks, charges, expenses, and other important information; read and consider it carefully before investing.

Please Note: Before you invest, consider whether your or the beneficiary’s home state offers any state tax or other state benefits such as financial aid, scholarship funds, and protection from creditors that are only available for investments in that state’s qualified tuition program. You also should consult a financial, tax, or other advisor to learn more about how state-based benefits (or any limitations) would apply to your specific circumstances. You also may wish to contact directly your home state’s 529 plan(s), or any other 529 plan, to learn more about those plan’s features, benefits and limitations. Keep in mind that state-based benefits should be one of many appropriately weighted factors to be considered when making an investment decision.
