Making the most of your Virginia529 account


May 1 is National College Decision Day, when rising college students across the United States commit to an alma mater. Congratulations, those who have reached this point – it means you are nearing the beginning of an exciting new phase of life in which your beneficiary will accumulate new experiences to enrich the rest of their life.

The coming months will be filled with a great deal of information and things to do, including paying for your beneficiary’s higher education expenses. To guide you through the process of using your Invest529 or Prepaid529 account to pay those bills, Virginia529 created two webinars.

The webinars address the following topics:

  • Forms and documents
  • School payment process
  • Qualified expenses
  • Taxes

Each is approximately one hour long and may be viewed at your convenience.
