Did you know that May 29th is recognized as National 529 College Savings Plan Day? In recognition of 529 day, we wanted to share some of the expanded benefits of 529 plans due to the recent tax code changes.

"529 plans were originally designed to help prepare for future college costs by offering tax-free growth and tax-free withdrawals when the funds are used toward qualified higher education expenses.
