Sponsor a 529 Plan

We’ve developed a complete suite of capabilities to make sure that each 529 plan is run efficiently and effectively. And since no two 529 programs are alike, our service model allows flexibility.

A 529 Industry Leader

Ascensus provides program management and administration services for 42 plans across 25 states and the District of Columbia with over $174 billion in assets under administration.*

We offer a single source for implementation, recordkeeping, administration, client service, marketing, and investment services. Having a one-stop provider significantly reduces the amount of time and effort needed to administer a state’s 529 plan, and ensures a consistent, seamless delivery of award-winning services. Our unique platform allows each client the flexibility to choose any or all of the components offered, based on their specific needs.

We also work closely with states on the creation of investment policies and guidelines, investment-related reporting, and periodic investment reviews.
