Frequently Asked Questions
Student debt is over $1.7 trillion. Many people want to save for college but don’t know where to start. With SavvyFi, all someone needs to do is provide some basic information about themselves and their future grad to open a 529 college savings account. Our unique features like gifting and cashback rewards help their grad look forward to a future without debt without them bearing all of the responsibility.
A 529 plan is an investment account that allows savings to grow tax-free if the funds are used for “qualified expenses” at “eligible higher education institutions.”This includes expenses such as tuition, room and board, and books. That means individuals get a boost on their investment earnings that wouldn't be available otherwise. Eligible institutions include four-year universities, community colleges, trade schools, and private K-12 schools. Qualified expenses typically cover most costs associated with attending school.

Anyone! You can open an account for your child, grandchild, niece, nephew, and even the neighbor’s kid – as long as you have their social security number. If you’re looking for a head start on your savings, you can even open an account for yourself and transfer it to your child at a later date.
The savings will be invested in a Vanguard age-based option through my529’s 529 program. Vanguard’s age-based option starts out with higher growth investment options when the future grad is younger and automatically reduces risk as a child approaches college age.
If the plan owner’s child does not attend college, there are many options for what they can do with the college savings. They can transfer the 529 account to another family member, use the funds for their own education, or withdraw the funds with a 10% penalty on their earnings to give their child a head start on other important financial goals.
