Edvest College Savings Plan

Edvest program iconWHAT IS EDVEST?

Edvest is a simple way for families to save for higher education costs. You’re probably familiar with 401k plans for retirement. The Edvest College Savings Plan is similar, but it’s used to save for higher education. With a low minimum contribution, low fees, and a tax deduction for Wisconsin residents, Edvest makes saving more affordable. State of Wisconsin employees may contribute directly from payroll.


Open an Edvest account at Edvest.com/benefit. Choose from a variety of investment options and contribute to your account regularly. State of Wisconsin employees can contribute by payroll direct deposit for a minimum contribution of $15 (or more) per pay period. Wisconsin residents who contribute to an Edvest account may be eligible for a state tax deduction. (Limitations apply*.)

Parents, grandparents, extended family and friends – can open an Edvest account for anyone else. You can even open one to save for your own continuing education. Plus, no matter where your future student lives or goes to school, their Edvest funds will go with them.
