Why a ScholarShare 529 account?

Your plan is financial aid friendly

Your ScholarShare 529 account is viewed as a parental asset for financial aid purposes and counts less against aid eligibility than the same funds held in your child’s name.2

Your child has options

For California taxpayers, savings can be applied to any eligible college or university across the country and abroad, as well as at trade schools, community colleges and technical institutions.

You have more control

You’re never locked in and can withdraw your funds for any reason at any time.3

You enjoy more flexibility

Funds in your child’s account are transferable to another eligible family member, which includes siblings, stepchildren, parents…even first cousins.
