A 529 plan - more than a savings account
With CollegeBacker you can make the most of your savings. We’ll help you open a tax-advantaged investment account called a 529 College Savings Plan. It grows tax-free and can be withdrawn tax-free to pay for your child's education costs – just like a retirement account for college.
As an SEC registered investment adviser, we have a fiduciary duty to put your interests first and never take commisions. We only suggest the best 529 plans with low-fee investment options, recommend portfolios that reduce risk as your child ages, and use cutting-edge encryption and security practices to safeguard your personal information.
