Automatic contributions—set it and forget it

Building adequate savings for education doesn’t have to be difficult. In fact, it can be as easy as “setting it and forgetting it.”

my529, Utah’s educational savings plan, has been helping families save for the costs of education for over 25 years. Set up an automatic, direct deposit from your paycheck to your my529 account, at a frequency that works for you, then forget about it. You’ve just set yourself on the path of saving.

You don’t have to set up this benefit through your employer directly, you can set up recurring contributions from your bank or credit union to fund your my529 account. Either way, you are building education savings.

The earlier you start saving, the greater the potential benefit. Even small contributions have the potential to grow over time. Visit our page on How to Contribute for more information or to enroll in automatic contributions.
