1As long as there was a net contribution amount of $2,400 in the account at the end of a continuous 8-year period during which the beneficiary lived in Kentucky, in-state tuition rates would apply (with possible restrictions). See the Program Description for additional information.
2Other school or federal financial aid programs may consider them in determining financial aid so be sure to review guidelines set forth in the FAFSA and contact your institution for details.

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.
