Plan Benefits

Saving for college doesn't have to be an impossible test. The IAdvisor 529 Plan was designed to provide a means for Iowa families and friends to save for a child's college education while taking advantage of multiple tax and estate benefits.

A Flexible Way to Invest for College 

The IAdvisor 529 Plan permits funding of up to $420,000 per beneficiary, from parents, grandparents, family and friends, to cover a wide range of qualified educational expenses at eligible higher education institutions.1

Tax Advantages

The IAdvisor 529 Plan offers federal and state tax-deferred growth and earnings. For Iowa residents, annual contributions of up to $5,500 per beneficiary per taxpayer may be deductible from Iowa taxable income in 2024 (adjusted annually for inflation).2

A Convenient Way to Invest

The IAdvisor 529 Plan offers three distinct ways to invest: 1) by age, 2) by risk level, and 3) by building your own portfolio.

Eligible expenses must be related to enrollment or attendance at an eligible educational institution as defined by section 529 of the Internal Revenue Code. Eligible expenses may include but are not limited to tuition and fees, books, supplies, equipment and certain room and board. An eligible educational institution is any college, university, vocational school, or other post-secondary educational institution eligible to participate in a student aid program administered by the U.S. Department of Education. See for more information on federal student aid.

If withdrawals are not qualified, the deductions must be added back to Iowa taxable income.
