CollegeChoice 529 is now Indiana529

INDIANAPOLIS (May 20, 2024) – Treasurer of State Daniel Elliott today announced that Indiana’s CollegeChoice 529 Savings Plans has rebranded to Indiana529. The new name and updated look reflect the expansion of 529 plans to provide more opportunities for families.

“Over the years, 529 plans have evolved to become more inclusive of all higher education pursuits, including college, technical school, apprenticeships, and beyond,” said Treasurer of State Daniel Elliott. “This rebrand is an exciting representation of that. Hoosiers have big dreams and Indiana529 is helping families save early and often – expanding opportunities and paving the way for all students to find future success.”

Indiana529 is the state-sponsored investment plan, offering a simple and tax-smart way to save for your children’s (or grandchildren’s) future education expenses. For every dollar you invest, savings grow tax-free and can be used for qualified expenses like tuition, fees, and equipment at eligible schools across the country, including 2- and 4-year colleges, tech and trade schools, graduate schools, and registered apprenticeship programs.

Indiana taxpayers may also be eligible for a generous state income tax credit of 20 percent of contributions to an Indiana529 account, up to $1,500 ($750 for married couples filing separately) per year. Since you don’t have to own the account to receive the credit, this makes gifting to an Indiana529 account very attractive to family and friends who want to support a child’s dreams.

“Saving for the future is easier than you think,” said program Executive Director Marissa Rowe. “Indiana529 offers families the flexibility they need to save on every budget and timeline. And with additional gift tax and estate planning benefits, contributors can save in the process, too!”

For just $10, you can open an Indiana529 account and begin saving today. Visit MyIndiana529.com to learn more and get started – because their dreams are worth saving for.
