Ascensus College Savings, a 529 plan administrator, has launched Learn529.com, an interactive website that educates investors about 529 plans and how to achieve college savings goals.
Ascensus timed the launch for September’s College Savings Month. The website, which is available in both English and Spanish, highlights the benefits and common misconceptions associated with 529 plans. Benefits of 529 plans include a range of investment options, tax advantages for qualified withdrawals, the flexibility to change beneficiaries, and more. Ascensus developed the website in association with EverFi, a provider of financial education for consumers and students.
“Learn529.com is a great resource for families to better understand the many benefits of investing in a 529 plan,” says Jeff Howkins, president of Ascensus College Savings. “As the cost of a college education continues to rise, Ascensus College Saings recognizes the importance of educating investors about how 529 plans can help them reach their college savings goals.”
