We’re going to celebrate College Savings Day (May 29) by giving away $1,529! Anyone with an existing NC 529 Account or who opens one is eligible to enter. Don’t miss out on a chance to add $1,529 to your college savings in the NC 529 Plan.
One of the most common questions parents have about an NC 529® Plan is when should I set up an NC 529 Account? It’s a simple question with a straightforward answer — now! That’s because it’s never too early to start saving for your child’s higher education.
Here are a few reasons why you might want to enroll in the NC 529 Plan and create an account for your child today:

When it comes to saving your money, it’s important that you understand how a college savings vehicle works. We know that investing in a savings account for college can be a little confusing, especially if you are not familiar with financial jargon about your investment.
That’s why the NC 529® Plan is working to make it as easy as possible for our NC 529 Account holders to understand what they are reading.
How do you picture your little one’s future? Bustling around a hospital saving lives? Reporting on the nightly news? Being a professional athlete? Children up to age 10 can explore these careers and more at the Future Me Kids Career Fair at Marbles Kids Museum, 201 East Hargett St., Raleigh, from 1 – 4 PM on Saturday, February 25. Stop in to enjoy watching your little one explore the possibilities!
The NC 529 Lucky 3 Drawing was most recently held in the Fall 2016. Those who contributed to their NC 529 Account during the drawing were entered for a chance to have an additional $529 added to their Account. We’re pleased to have had so many entries, as this means many people took another step in saving for college.
Special congratulations to our three winners:
