Did you know: Youth who expect to graduate from a four-year college and have an account are approximately seven times more likely to attend college than youth without an account.1
Here's why you should invest with Learning Quest:
Opening a 529 Plan and Managing it is Easy
It takes just a few minutes to open an education savings plan. Our customer-focused enrollment process is simple and straightforward. Easily manage your account online, too. Of course, we're always here to help if needed.
Funds may be used at accredited higher education institutions anywhere in the United States such as 2- or 4-year college, vocational school or technical college, and graduate school. Funds may also be used at any K-12 education institutions. Your child does NOT need to attend college in your home state.
529 Tax Benefits
The funds in your education savings account grow tax-deferred and qualified 529 withdrawals are tax-free. That means more money in your pocket. Take advantage of several tax benefits at the federal and state level. It's the smart way to save!
The availability of tax or other state benefits (such as financial aid, scholarship funds and protection from creditors) may be conditioned on meeting certain requirements, such as residency, purpose for or timing of distributions, or other factors.
You choose how and when to contribute — set up recurring contributions from your bank account or paycheck through payroll deduction, or make a one-time payment. See how regular investing pays off.
529 Plan Investments
No two investors are the same. That's why we offer a variety of 529 investment options that allows you to select what's best for you and your family depending on your comfort level and goals.
