Before establishing an account, your client and you should clearly understand the limitations of my529’s obligations and support to account owners and beneficiaries.
This website is provided solely for the convenience of your client and you. By accessing and browsing this website, you both expressly agree to be bound by the following terms and conditions without limitation or qualification. Access to and use of this website may be prohibited in certain jurisdictions. If your client and/or you access this website, you do so at your own risk, and you are responsible for complying with the applicable laws of your jurisdictions.
This website and the information, products, and processes to which it refers are intended to be used only by residents of the United States. The information contained on this website is for informational purposes only and shall not constitute or be considered as a solicitation or an offer to buy or sell any securities or other financial instruments.
my529 is a 529 college savings plan sponsored by the State of Utah. Although money contributed to my529 may be invested in portfolios that invest in underlying mutual funds, my529 is not itself a mutual fund. The State of Utah has created a trust specifically for the purpose of offering 529 college savings plans, including my529.
The value of your client’s my529 account may vary depending on market conditions and the performance of the investment option he or she selects. It could be more or less than the amount contributed. Your client’s investment could lose value. Past performance is no guarantee of future returns. Your client assumes all investment risks, including potential for loss of principal as well as responsibility for any federal and/or state tax consequences. Accounts are opened based on representations by your client and you, and with your client’s express agreement to the Terms and Conditions of the my529 Account Agreement. Information on this website does not supersede the information in the Program Description and the actual written contracts and agreements that establish my529 accounts.
Except for the FDIC-Insured investment option, and the FDIC-insured underlying investments, investments in my529 are not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). The FDIC-Insured investment option, and the FDIC-insured accounts, are held in trust by my529 at Sallie Mae Bank and U.S. Bank (collectively Banks). Contributions to and earnings on the FDIC-insured accounts are allocated between the Banks according to the following percentages: Sallie Mae Bank (90 percent) and U.S. Bank (10 percent).
Subject to the rules and regulations of the Banks and the FDIC to each account owner—such as your client— money in the FDIC-insured accounts will retain its value, whether in the FDIC-Insured investment option or when allocated to another investment option that has FDIC-insured accounts included as an underlying investment. Money in the FDIC-insured accounts is insured by the FDIC on a pass-through basis to each account owner up to the maximum amount set by federal law, which is $250,000 at each Bank. The amount of FDIC insurance provided to your client is based on the total of (1) the value of his or her investment in the FDIC-insured accounts at each Bank, plus (2) the value of other accounts owned by your client (if any) and held at each Bank, as determined by the Banks and by FDIC regulations.
Non-Utah taxpayers and residents
A client who is a non-Utah taxpayer and resident should determine whether the state in which he or she— or his or her beneficiary— pays taxes or lives offers a 529 plan that provides state tax or other benefits, such as financial aid, scholarship funds, and protection from creditors, not otherwise available by investing in my529. Your client should consider such state tax treatments and benefits, if any, before investing in my529.
