Little by little, you can save for college.
Balancing today’s bills with tomorrow’s tuition isn’t easy. Often, the hardest part of saving for college is getting started. HI529 makes it simple. Consider an approach like the following:
- Open a HI529 account and start saving with as little as $15.
- Commit to saving $15 or more on a regular basis.
- Make saving automatic by setting up a recurring contribution or payroll direct deposit.1
As you can see in this hypothetical chart, if an account owner began to save $50 a month when a child was 1 year old (with an initial contribution of $250), a 529 college savings plan could potentially have an account worth $16,494 by the time the child was college age.2
