Debunking 529 myths

Fiction: If my child doesn’t go to a college or university in Iowa, I can’t use funds from College Savings Iowa.

Fact: Funds from a College Savings Iowa account can be used at any accredited higher education institution around the country, including colleges, universities, vocational and trade schools, graduate schools and even programs abroad. You don’t have to live in Iowa to open a College Savings Iowa 529 account, and the beneficiaries of your accounts do not have to be residents of Iowa either. College Savings Iowa is proud to be one of the top choices for 529 plans for Iowans and those around the entire country.
