Vanguard 529 Plan age-based portfolios

Tax-advantaged investment options that can reduce your college savings homework. 

  • Broadly diversified: Underlying funds invest in thousands of stocks, bonds, and short-term reserves to account for your child's age and your risk level.
  • Managed for you: Each asset mix automatically adjusts to gradually become more conservative, to help reduce your risk as college gets closer.
  • A great value: Expenses among the lowest of any 529 plan—plus no enrollment, transfer, or commission fees—means more of your money can work for your child.

Find out if The Vanguard 529 College Savings Plan is right for you

The Vanguard 529 College Savings Plan is sponsored by Nevada and open to any investor. However, some states offer a state tax deduction as well as other advantages if you invest in their plan. Therefore, check with your state because it may have a plan that's more appropriate for you. 

Select your state

Tax advantages are only one of several factors to consider when choosing a 529 plan. There are many factors to take into consideration. Before investing in a plan offered by a state where you’re not a taxpayer, consider whether your state or that of your designated beneficiary offers any state tax or other benefit exclusive to that state's plan. Also, be aware that tax and other benefits may be contingent upon meeting other requirements. Consult your tax professional for more information.

For details about any 529 college savings plan, contact the plan provider to obtain a Program Description, which includes investment objectives, risks, charges, expenses, and other information. Read and consider it carefully before investing.
