The Ivy InvestEd℠ 529 Plan is a tax-advantaged education savings plan designed to help prepare for future education goals.
An Ivy InvestEd 529 Plan can be opened with as little as $250 per fund and subsequent investments do not have a minimum. Financial advisors can help clients set up an account with only $150 per fund and subsequently, a minimum of $50 per month, if an automatic monthly investment or Automatic Investment Service (AIS) is established. Additionally, if an account is established through payroll deduction or salary deferrals, there are no account minimums. Reminder: Periodic investment programs like AIS cannot guarantee a profit or protect against investment loss in a declining market.
The Ivy InvestEd 529 Plan offers a range of investment options designed to meet differing time horizons and risk tolerances. If an account owner is interested in making a gift contribution to an existing Ivy InvestEd 529 Plan account, he/she can complete the Ivy InvestEd 529 Plan Gift Contribution Form.
Automated account access and fund information are available 24 hours a day. Client service representatives are available 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. CST, Monday through Friday.
