Saving for College Isn't Impossible...All You Need is a Plan

The Pennsylvania 529 College and Career Savings Program has the plan you need. The program offers two plans and many investment options that have helped over 205,000 families of all income levels answer one of their biggest financial concerns- how to afford college.

A few of the topics you’ll hear about include: How you can save for college and save on your Pennsylvania income taxes, how you can avoid paying any federal or state income taxes on your college savings growth, how you can save for college with little impact on your chances for financial aid, how you can save for a semester of college today and cover a semester in the future no matter when or how much tuition has gone up in the meantime, and how saving can be made easy.

The HR Office as a Financial Resource: Implementing Education Savings as a Voluntary Benefit

This webinar provides HR Professionals with an overview of the PA 529 College and Career Savings Program and its PA 529 at Work outreach. The presentation covers the current landscape of college affordability, why a college education is important, and how employers can support employees that want to save in the same manner as a retirement account. Offering a 529 plan as part of an existing benefit package is simple and inexpensive because the employer's role is usually limited to employee education and payroll deduction arrangements.

The PA 529 College and Career Savings Program is a no-cost, easy to implement voluntary benefit administered by the PA Treasury Department. Learn how we can help your company develop a plan to implement this voluntary benefit to employees, assist your HR/Payroll department with a tailored communications plan, and answer any questions your employees may have. The PA 529 at Work outreach team is available to provide your workplace with information on the benefits and best ways to save for education with the PA 529 College and Career Savings Program, including direct deposit programs.

The presentation covers the following topics in greater detail:

  • The benefits of saving for education with a 529 plan.
  • How to implement the PA 529 at Work program in the workplace.
  • Resources available to support the program roll-out.
  • How to teach staff about opening a 529 account and payroll deduction.

Learn about the PA 529 at Work and how you can enhance your company’s benefits package with the PA 529 College and Career Savings Program. You may also learn more by emailing PA529@patreasury.gov or by calling 717.772.5000. Find additional resources at here.
