Enroll online or by mail. There are no enrollment fees or sales charges to open an account, and your initial deposit can be as low as $25.

We even make it easy to choose your investments. Descriptions and performance information is available in the Program Description and online at You can pick an age-based portfolio based on your preferred strategy (from conservative to aggressive) that automatically adjusts based on your child’s age, select from individual multi-fund investment options or pick a combination.
