Information about 529 College Savings plan

Earlier this year, a change at the federal government level allowed for funds in 529 College Savings Plans to be used for k-12 education expenses. However, Nebraska’s state rules do not allow people to use those funds in the exact same way. You may learn more about this topic on this website – https://www.nest529direct.com – or speak directly with a financial planner.
