On December 22, 2017, the president signed new tax legislation into law. We're working on updating our website to reflect the new U.S. tax laws. In the meantime, the website may not address the changes. The legislation includes several new provisions related specifically to 529 plan accounts. We'll provide more information as additional details about the effects of the tax bill become clear. We encourage you to consult a qualified tax advisor about your personal situation.
Low investment minimum
Open your account for as little as $10 a month (or $30 per quarter) with recurring contributions (an automatic investment plan) or a one-time contribution of $25. You can even contribute through payroll direct deposit ($5 minimum per pay period).1
High contribution maximum
Contribute up to $366,000 per designated beneficiary, while enjoying all the potential benefits of tax-deferred growth.
Broad selection of low-cost investment options
Choose among Age-Based options, Custom Portfolio options, and the GIFT Plan Savings Portfolio option to create an investment strategy that fits your risk tolerance and time horizon.
Total annual asset-based Arkansas 529 GIFT Plan fees are 0.53% (0.39% for the GIFT Plan Savings Portfolio). For example, if you invest $1,000, the annual fee would be just $5.30 ($3.90 for the GIFT Plan Savings Portfolio). All accounts owned by non-residents are charged an annual account fee of $20; that fee is waived if the designated beneficiary or account owner is a resident of Arkansas.
