Path2College 529 Plan

A Plan for Everyone:
Employees

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

On May 11, 2020, Path2College 529 Plan changed to a new administrative platform:

Any direct deposit contributions established under the old record keeper will be rejected and returned unless direct deposit contributions are re-established. Impacted account owners who contribute through payroll direct deposit should have received a letter containing instructions to update payroll instructions. If you did not receive this letter, please contact us at 1-877-424-4377.

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!
