“The national awareness 5/29 Day serves as an important reminder of the need to save for college and as a celebration of the many benefits of college savings plans. What better opportunity to offer a new account bonus and compound those benefits with NEST 529?” said Nebraska State Treasurer John Murante. “I am proud that with this bonus, NEST 529 is further upping the ante, making college savings that much more accessible for hundreds of families across the country.”
With more than a quarter of a million accounts nationwide, and over 89,000 in Nebraska, the NEST 529 College Savings Plan is a steadfast partner in the journey to higher education.
“Getting an early start to college savings is one of the smartest financial decisions a family can make. By investing early and often in a NEST 529 account, parents, grandparents and other loved ones give themselves the time and foresight they need to meet the rising costs of college,” said Deborah Goodkin, Managing Director, Savings Plans, First National Bank of Omaha. “This bonus is a fantastic opportunity to kick off the college savings journey. At NEST 529 we look forward to celebrating this important day and remain committed to providing the best possible tools and resources for college savings every day of the year.”
