Our programs


As State Treasurer, I serve Iowans in many ways.

I act as the State’s banker, depositing State funds, investing them and ensuring they are available when needed. I invest Iowa’s pooled money, coordinate bonding and oversee the unclaimed property program that has returned millions through the Great Iowa Treasure Hunt. I administer Iowa’s 529 education savings programs, including College Savings Iowa and the IAdvisor 529 Plan, which have billions of dollars invested by families for future education expenses. I also manage Iowa’s ABLE plan, IAble, to help individuals with disabilities achieve their better life experience.
