529 College Savings Day is May 29, Says Cutler

HARRISBURG – The Pennsylvania Treasury is sponsoring 529 College Savings Day as a way to raise awareness with parents about the importance of saving for higher education with a 529 plan account, Rep. Bryan Cutler (R-Peach Bottom) said today.

“Pennsylvania’s 529 College Savings Programs are a great way for parents and grandparents to set aside money for higher education,” said Cutler.  “As the parent of three children, I know how daunting the idea of saving for college can be.  I encourage parents to learn more about this program and to start saving early.”

The 529 College Savings Day will be Wednesday, May 29.  As an incentive to help get families started, free online enrollment in the PA 529 Guaranteed Savings Plan, a savings of $50, will be available when they visit the 529 website and use the coupon code 529DAY.  The promotion is good through May 31.

Families also can register to win one of five $529 PA 529 Guaranteed Savings Plan accounts.  The deadline to register is May 31.

Administered by the Pennsylvania Treasury, the program currently serves more than 167,000 accounts with $2.5 billion in assets.  It offers a range of resources specifically designed to help families and students save for college and deal with rising tuition rates, including the Pennsylvania 529 Guaranteed Savings Plan and the Pennsylvania 529 Investment Plan.
