Utah Educational Savings Plan

For Utah Residents

Utah's Official 529 Plan

The Utah Educational Savings Plan (UESP) was authorized by the Utah State Legislature and is designed to comply with Section 529 of the Internal Revenue Code. UESP is administered and managed by the Utah State Board of Regents acting in its capacity as the Utah Higher Education Assistance Authority.

UESP offers college savers a collection of benefits that make saving for college simple and rewarding.

  • Save on Taxes & Fees

    While your UESP funds grow, you owe no federal or Utah state taxes on the earnings. And when you withdraw funds to use for qualified higher education expenses, no Utah state or federal income taxes are assessed. » Learn More

  • Utah State Income Tax Credit

    In addition to low fees and tax-free savings, many Utah taxpayers choose to save with UESP because of the Utah state income tax credit available to them. The more beneficiaries you own accounts for, the more you can save on your taxes. » Learn More
