What is the PA 529 Investment Plan (IP)?

It's a tax-advantaged 529 plan intended to help an individual or a family pay the costs of higher education. It is a program established by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and administered by the Treasury Department. The plan is available to all U.S. citizens and resident aliens, age 18 or older, with a valid Social Security or taxpayer identification number.

With the PA 529 IP, you can choose from 15 investment options, including three age-based options, from Vanguard, one of America's largest financial service companies.
