Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I get started with SavvyFi?
Student debt is over $1.6t. Many people want to save for college but don’t know where to start. With SavvyFi, all you need is some basic information about you and your future grad to open a 529 college savings account. Our unique features like gifting and cashback rewards help your grad look forward to a future without debt.
What is a 529 plan?
A 529 plan is an investment account that allows your savings to grow tax-free if the funds are used for “qualified expenses” at “eligible higher education institutions.” That just means you’ll get a little boost on your investment earnings that wouldn’t be available otherwise. Eligible institutions include four-year universities, community colleges, and trade schools. Qualified expenses typically cover most costs associated with attending school.

Who Can Open A 529 Plan?
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.
Can you tell me more about the account?
Your 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 potential when your future grad is younger and automatically reduces risk as your child approaches college age.
What if my child does not attend college?
If your child does not attend college, there are many options for what you can do with your college savings. You can transfer your 529 account to another family member, use the funds for your own education or withdraw the funds with a 10% penalty on your earnings to give your child a head start on other important financial goals.
