Using your Virginia529 inVEST account

Using your Virginia529 inVEST account

If you're paying for the upcoming semester with funds from your Virginia529 inVEST account, please submit a request to distribute funds as soon as possible. This will ensure you receive the money when you need it.

For fastest service, make the request online in your secure Virginia529 account, and request an ACH payment to the account owner or beneficiary. Generally, you will receive an ACH distribution within one to two business days. Other forms of distributions (to the school or by check to the account owner or beneficiary) may take up to 10 business days.

Congratulations on saving up for this worthwhile expense. Your student – and your student's financial future – thanks you!
