The SSGA Upromise 529 Plan is an easy, affordable, and tax-advantaged way to save for college.
You have control over your account and professional investment management.

Save for anyone

You can open an SSGA Upromise 529 account with anyone as the beneficiary—even yourself. And you can change your beneficiary (as per plan rules) with no tax penalty.

Enjoy flexible investment options

Start small

You can open an account with just $15, and make regular contributions of as little as $15 through payroll deduction.

Choose how you want to participate

Choose a simple age-based option and your investment will automatically become more conservative as your child nears college age. Or, if you’re more hands-on, you can choose from a range of individual portfolios to create your own investment plan.

Spend where and how you'd like

Use the money anywhere

Use your money for qualified expenses at any eligible school in the United States or abroad. This includes 2- and 4-year colleges, graduate schools (including law and medical), and vocational/technical schools.

Pay for tuition and more

The money in your 529 plan account can be used for qualified education expenses including tuition, fees, certain room and board costs, books, technology, and more. However, using money for non-educational expenses may incur tax penalties.

Please Note: Before investing in any 529 plan, you should consider whether your or the beneficiary's home state offers a 529 plan that provides its taxpayers with favorable state tax and other benefits that are only available through investment in the home state's 529 plan. You also should consult your financial, tax, or other advisor to learn more about how state-based benefits (or any limitations) would apply to your specific circumstances. You also may wish to contact directly your home state's 529 plan(s), or any other 529 plan, to learn more about those plans' features, benefits and limitations. Keep in mind that state-based benefits should be one of many appropriately weighted factors to be considered when making an investment decision.

The Plan is administered by the Board of Trustees of the College Savings Plans of Nevada (the "Board"), chaired by the Nevada State Treasurer. Ascensus Broker Dealer Services, Inc. (“ABD”) serves as the Program Manager. ABD has overall responsibility for the day-to-day operations, including distribution of the Plan and provision of certain marketing services. State Street Global Advisors (“SSGA”) serves as Investment Manager for the Plan except for the Savings Portfolio, which is managed by Sallie Mae Bank, and also provides or arranges for certain marketing services for the Plan. The Plan's Portfolios invest in either (i) Exchange Traded Funds and mutual funds offered or managed by SSGA affiliates; or (ii) a Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC)-insured omnibus savings account held in trust by the Board at Sallie Mae Bank. Except for the Savings Portfolio, investments in the Plan are not insured by the FDIC. Units of the Portfolios are municipal securities and the value of units will vary with market conditions.

Investment returns will vary depending upon the performance of the Portfolios you choose. Except to the extent of FDIC insurance available for the Savings Portfolio, you could lose all or a portion of your money by investing in the Plan, depending on market conditions. Account Owners assume all investment risks as well as responsibility for any federal and state tax consequences.
