New Year, Lower Fees


As the largest 529 plan in the country, Virginia529 is committed to distinguishing itself from other plans with best-in-class investment options and a thoughtful investment philosophy. That’s why for the fifth time in its more than 20-year history, the administrative fee for its award-winning Invest529 program has been lowered.

The cut, which reduces administrative fees for all Invest529 customers by 10 percent, is effective as of January 1, 2020.The reduction could potentially save customers hundreds of thousands of dollars, helping families accrue additional investment returns toward their education savings.

Invest529 offers more than 20 investment options, including seven that evolve to more conservative investments as the account beneficiary's anticipated high school graduation date approaches.

The program is open to legal residents of any U.S. state and can be used at eligible educational institutions around the world. The minimum initial deposit is $25.
