Minimums: You can open an account with $25.

Maximum Contributions: Currently, the maximum account value is $377,000. 529 plans typically increase the contribution limit over time, so you may be able to contribute more.

Tax Benefits: Good news for Ohio residents – by investing in your state’s 529 plan, you can deduct up to $2,000 on your state income taxes. You also get federal income tax benefits as you do not pay income tax on your earnings. Out-of-state participants still get the federal tax benefits.

Residency: CollegeAdvantage 529 Savings Plan is open to all United States residents, not just those in Ohio. However, only Ohio residents are eligible for the Putnam Investment Options through the direct program. Non-residents can participate in the Putnam options through a financial advisor in the state in which you reside.
