September was College Savings Month - There's still time to celebrate

Last month was College Savings Month, a nationally recognized celebration of 529 plans. During College Savings Month, we encourage parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and friends  to learn more about College Savings Iowa and  how their contributions can make a difference for a child’s future. We also encourage account holders to make an extra contribution to their accounts during the back-to-school season.

Just because College Savings Month is over, though, doesn’t mean we have to stop celebrating. There’s always time to learn more about how College Savings Iowa works and the benefits it provides college savers. There’s also never a wrong time to get your whole family involved. Don’t forget that parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles can all open individual accounts for the special children in their lives. Every little contribution helps and they can start with as little as $25.
