It doesn’t take a lot to save for education. And every dollar helps.
- Getting started with just $25. That’s probably less than a dinner out with your family.
- Make saving automatic: Set up recurring contributions of at least $25 directly from your bank account – and consider increasing annually. Contribute directly from your paycheck, too, with as little as $15 per pay period. (Of course, you can make one-time contributions of at least $25 any time by check or electronically.)
- Save as much as you want: While most families are saving for only a portion of their child’s future education, you can save up to $350,000 total per all qualified tuition programs sponsored by Kentucky in their name.
Low fees matter
Your contributions should go toward education, not expensive investing fees. That’s why, with KY Saves 529, there is no enrollment fee. You’ll pay just a low total annual asset-based fee per investment option that ranges from 0.20% - 0.85%, or as low as $2 a year for each $1,000 invested.
The fee covers all administrative costs associated with the program, such as:
- the cost of securely maintaining your account
- oversight of the program’s investments
- providing excellent customer service and account record keeping
- the operating expenses of the underlying investment funds in which the investment options are invested

Read and consider it carefully before investing.
Please Note: Before you invest, consider whether your or the beneficiary’s home state offers any state tax or other state benefits such as financial aid, scholarship funds, and protection from creditors that are only available for investments in that state’s qualified tuition program. You also may wish to contact directly your home state’s 529 college savings plan(s), or any other 529 plan, to learn more about those plans’ features, benefits, and limitations. You should also consult your financial, tax, or other advisor to learn more about how state-based benefits (or any limitations) would apply to your specific circumstances. Keep in mind that state-based benefits should be one of many appropriately weighted factors to be considered when making an investment decision.
