UESP Is Changing its Name to my529
Whether you are a new or a longtime account owner, you have likely referred to your Utah Educational Savings Plan (UESP)
account as “my 529 account.” We thought we’d make it official.
On February 5, 2018, UESP will become my529.
The name may be new, but with my529, you will still receive a user-friendly experience and prompt, professional service from
our staff. We are the same company—we simply changed our name.
How will this change affect accounts and account owners?
Your investment portfolios and account balances will not be impacted. You will now view account information via my529.org instead of my529.org using your existing account number and login information.
Your 2017 tax documents and fourth quarter statements will bear the UESP logo. Beginning February 5, 2018, expect to see the my529 logo on all plan communication such as newsletters, quarterly statements, tax documents, Account Access, and my529.org. Our previous URL, my529.org, will redirect you to my529.org. You may also notice the my529 rollout campaign announcing the change through television and radio commercials, print advertisements, and billboards.
Why the name change?
The decision to rebrand UESP involved considerable research, discussion, and development. The name my529 eliminates any confusion about our mission. 529 plans—investment vehicles designed for educational savings—help people save for university, college, or technical school. Funds can be used at any institution of higher education nationwide or abroad that accepts federal financial aid. my529 funds are not restricted to schools in Utah.
And now, you can use your my529 funds on K-12 tuition expenses.
