To celebrate 529 College Savings Day, my office and College Savings Iowa held a Facebook giveaway for a $529 account. We had almost 2,000 entries over the week leading up to May 29th (529 Day). Coming up in September, we’ll be celebrating College Savings Month and those who follow our social media may have another chance to win a College Savings Iowa giveaway account!
College Savings Month is a great time to learn more about how you can save money for college using a 529 plan and how a 529 plan works in general. If you already have a 529 account open for the special children and grandchildren in your life, College Savings Month is also a great time to make an extra contribution to those accounts. Throughout College Savings Month, take the time to learn about how much college may cost in the future, the value of having a higher education degree, the tax benefits of 529 plans and much, much more!
