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.

How can I help protect my security?
Use caution when choosing your user name and password
Choose a password that will be difficult for others to guess. Do not use obvious or easily accessed data such as your name, initials, Social Security number, mother's maiden name, phone number, address, family birthdays, family names, pet names, or any combination of these. Be sure to choose a unique and secure password to help ensure your protection.
The GIFT College Investing Plan will never contact you to solicit your user name or password. Never provide them to anyone.
