Access your account.
Manage your account securely online anytime or call the PA 529 GSP to speak to a savings specialist at 1-800-440-4000.
No income restrictions.
It doesn’t matter what your income is – any U.S. legal resident 18 and older can open a PA 529 GSP account, so long as either the Account Owner or Beneficiary is a resident of Pennsylvania at the time the account is opened.
Anyone can contribute.
Parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and family friends can all help cover the cost of your child’s college education.
Get your money back – any time, for any reason.
If you choose not to use your PA 529 GSP account, you can always get your money back whenever you, for any other purpose.
