Help us celebrate 20 years of 529 college savings plans!
In 1996, Congress established a new way to help Americans save for higher education by creating section 529 of the Internal Revenue Code. One year later, Wisconsin established the state’s own 529 college savings plans, today known as the Edvest College Savings Plan (direct-sold) and Tomorrow’s Scholar (advisor-sold).
With more than 11.7 million 529 college savings plan accounts totaling more than $235.4 billion as of March 31, 2016, it’s clear that 529 college savings plans nationwide have had a tremendous impact on how Americans save for college.*
