Celebrate College Savings Month in September

As August and September approach, so does the start of the new school year, making it the perfect time to look ahead to your child’s future and in particular their higher-education plans. Starting in September, we’ll be celebrating College Savings Month to spread the awareness of 529 plans and how they can help families save for future education.

Our goal is to make postsecondary education accessible to all families and their children, so we’re encouraging parents, grandparents, friends and other family to get involved. Every little bit saved could help a student reach their educational aspirations without the heavy burden of student loans.

Stay connected with us on social media to keep up with our celebration and learn how you can get involved. Then, get your friends and family involved by sharing our posts. They can join the fun while learning about the benefits of saving in a 529 plan.

And remember, you can also celebrate College Savings Month by making an extra contribution or increasing automatic contributions to your account.
