Ugift



What is Ugift?®

Let friends and family help. Ugift is an innovative way to invite family and friends to celebrate birthdays and holidays with the gift of education savings. This easy-to-use service lets you invite the special people in your life to make gift contributions to your PA 529 account. And contributions can be deducted by the gift giver on their Pennsylvania state income tax returns.*

To get started, log in to your PA 529 account and click Ugift in the sidebar.

*Ugift is a registered service mark of Ascensus Broker Dealer Services, LLC, and is an optional service, separate from PA 529, and not affiliated with the Commonwealth or the Treasury Department.




*The availability of tax or other benefits may be contingent on meeting other requirements. A withdrawal or portion of a withdrawal, not used for qualified expenses may be subject to state and local income taxes. The earnings portion of the withdrawal will be subject to federal income tax and, with a few exceptions, an additional 10% federal income tax penalty.
