Savings for more than tuition

Invest529 can be used to pay for qualified higher education expenses beyond tuition, including certain room and board costs, computers and related technology expenses as well as fees, books, supplies, and other equipment.

Customize your strategy with more than 20 choices

Invest529 offers a wide variety of portfolios to help you reach your savings goals.

Target enrollment investment portfolios

Investments automatically shift toward more conservative investments as your child gets closer to using funds for higher education. Portfolios are automatically rebalanced each year.

Static investment portfolios

These asset allocations remain the same over time and can be customized from conservative to aggressive risk objectives. You decide how long you stay invested in this portfolio strategy.
