Minnesotans using the state’s 529 College Savings Plan now have a new option to manage their account.  Jim Mandler with MN-SAVES says the “ReadySave 529” mobile app puts all necessary info right at your fingertips.

“View your balance, look at your investment lineup, your allocations, allows you to make contributions, you can actually compare your savings against the savings of some of your peers to see how your savings patterns are building.”

The app is available in the Apple App store or Google Play store. Signing up for a 529 plan is currently not supported in the app, but Mandler says there is plenty of information at mnsaves.org for people who are interested.
