Update from PA Treasury
PA Treasury’s Consumer Programs, which consists of the PA 529 College and Career Savings Program, Keystone Scholars, and the PA ABLE Savings Program, are increasing outreach activities and adding three team members. Elementary and secondary school counselors are invited to tell parents about Keystone Scholars, a $100 investment for education savings available to all PA children born after January 1, 2019. Email email@example.com or call 717-772-5000 to be connected to a specialist in your area.
School professionals and community organizations are especially encouraged to learn about the PA ABLE Savings Program (PA ABLE), a savings account for people with disabilities that helps individuals and their families save without affecting eligibility for benefits.
