The Education Plan for Employers
Empower your employees to meet their educational savings goals with a 529 college savings plan.
Adding The Education Plan to your employee benefits package is an easy, no-cost, hassle-free way for you to support the financial wellbeing of your employees and your company’s bottom line. Unlike other benefit programs, The Education Plan requires very little from HR while offering your employees the opportunity to save towards education goals for themselves and/or their loved ones on a regular basis through payroll direct deposit.
Increasing 529 plan participation significantly increases college attendance and graduation rates.* Plus, it reduces the burden of student debt and financial stress in the workplace that can lead to lower productivity and higher turnover. Employers can play a key role in strengthening their current and future workforce with one easy step.
