What is a 529 Plan?

A Section 529 qualified tuition program (529 plan) is a tax-advantaged savings program designed to help you save for college. You can use the assets held in your 529 account to pay for your beneficiary’s tuition, fees, books, and certain room and board costs, not only in Montana, but at eligible schools anywhere around the country. Funds from a 529 account can be used at eligible two- and four-year schools, trade and technical institutes, and even graduate schools.
