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.
You maintain control
With the Arkansas 529 GIFT Plan, you never have to worry about losing control of your account. Ownership of the plan’s assets is never transferred to your beneficiaries.
Flexible enough to change with your needs
A lot can happen between the day you open a 529 plan and the day you need it. Maybe your beneficiary decides not to go to college, or earns a scholarship. In any case, you can shift the money in that account to another eligible college-bound beneficiary in your family. Plus, you can use the Arkansas 529 GIFT Plan to save for anyone’s education, even your own.
Simplified account enrollment and management
Conveniently manage your account online, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Available for education at schools nationwide
Savings from your Arkansas 529 GIFT Plan account can be used at any eligible, accredited public or private college, university, or trade school in the world – not just those in Arkansas. Besides tuition, you can use it for certain room and board expenses, required books, and supply costs for both undergraduate and/or graduate education.
