Helpful Resources for 529 Plans

Allianz Tuition Insurance
Most families plan to pay for 4 years of college – but studies show that more than 65% of students will take longer. That’s just one reason to consider the benefits of Allianz Tuition Insurance. Families can choose from a range of plans offering up to 100% reimbursement for tuition and fees in the event a covered student withdraws as the result of a covered illness, injury, mental health disorder or a family emergency.

Terms, conditions, and exclusions apply.
