It's not hard to get your 529 plan started.

Start now with what you can afford.

With NEST, saving for college is affordable, flexible and offers unique benefits. Unlike many other 529 plans, there is no minimum amount to open an account or to continue to save. You can deposit a lump sum or save any amount monthly from your paycheck or your personal bank account.

Keep your savings goal in mind – don't be discouraged if you don't get there right away. You can always increase your contributions as you are able. And with NEST 529, friends and family can give gift contributions to help your account grow.

Use the calculator below to see how your savings can grow based on how much you can afford to save right now. See how much even a little bit can add up over time.
