With the SSGA Upromise 529 Plan, you invest after-tax dollars. Your investments then grow federal tax-deferred. Your withdrawals of the funds are federal tax-free, as long as you use the funds for a qualified expense.* There are estate- and gift-tax benefits too.
 

  • Tax-deferred growth. Because your earnings are free from federal income tax while they remain in your account, they can be reinvested. This allows your account to potentially grow faster than if you’d invested in a comparable taxable account.

  • Federal tax-free qualified withdrawals. Withdrawals used to pay for qualified higher education expenses are free from federal income tax, so more of your money can go towards college.*
  • Estate- and gift-tax benefits. Contribute up to $14,000 per beneficiary each year ($28,000 for married couples filing jointly) without incurring federal gift-tax consequences. You can choose to contribute up to $70,000 per child in a single year ($140,000 for married couples) and take advantage of five years' worth of tax-free gifts at one time.** (Contributions are considered completed gifts and are removed from your estate, but you, as the account owner, retain control.)

*Earnings on nonqualified withdrawals are subject to federal income tax and may be subject to a 10 percent federal tax penalty, as well as state and local income taxes. The availability of tax and other benefits may be contingent on meeting other requirements. 
** In the event the donor does not survive the five-year period, a pro-rated amount will revert to the donor's taxable estate.

Reach out to the SSGA Upromise 529 Plan

For more information about the SSGA Upromise 529 Plan ("the Plan") download the Plan Description and Participation Agreement or request one by calling 1-800-587-7305. Investment objectives, risks, charges, expenses, and other important information are included in the Plan Description and Participation Agreement; read and consider it carefully before investing.

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 or its 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.
