Path2College 529 Plan

A Plan for Everyone:

When saving for your child’s college is as convenient and automatic as taking your retirement or healthcare deductions, saving is a lot easier.


The establishment of new payroll contributions is temporarily discontinued as of March 30, 2020 to prepare for a transition to a new account management system. Please visit to learn more about the changes and the new direct deposit process.

College Savings Made Easy

Great news! The Path2College 529 Plan is available as an employee benefit. You’re probably familiar with 401(k) or 403(b) plans for retirement. A Path2College account is similar, but it’s used to save for higher education. With low fees, and tax advantages for Georgia residents, Path2College makes saving affordable. (*Limitations apply.) Because contributions can be made directly from payroll with direct deposit, it’s simple, too.

It only takes about 15 minutes to enroll. So let's get rolling!


For so many families, the Path2College 529 Plan is a smart choice. Here are just a few reasons why:

  • State tax benefits
  • 100% tax-free growth
  • Financial aid friendly
  • Use at approved schools anywhere in the US or abroad

Plus we are here to help every step of the way.

Set up your Path2College account

  • Open a new account
  • Add payroll contributions to an existing Path2College account
    [ Skip to Step 2 ]
  • Rollover an existing 529 account from elsewhere

Tip: If payroll will be your method of initial funding, select a minimum of $25 as your initial contribution and “Fund by Check.” Your first payroll direct deposit will be your initial contribution.
