Resolve to save

‘Tis the season of New Year’s resolutions. As you recommit to good habits for the new year, one of the best resolutions you can make is to strengthen your financial health. A great way to begin working toward this goal is to automate your college savings.

my529, Utah’s educational savings plan, offers a variety of ways to make contributions—including automating your deposits—to help you accomplish your goal. Schedule a regularly occurring contribution in your my529 online account or set up payroll direct deposit with your employer.

The earlier you start saving, the greater the potential benefit. Even small contributions have the chance to grow over time. Visit for more information or log in to your account where you can enroll in automatic contributions.

No matter what else is happening in your life, automating your college savings keeps your financial goals on track. Even if you don’t start in January, any time is a good time to start a healthy savings habit.
