    Celebrate 529 Day, Get a $100 Matching Grant!

    May 29th is 529 Day. It is a day to for us to celebrate and educate parents, grandparents and others about the benefits of 529 college savings plans like the Michigan Education Trust (MET). MET is Michigan's 529 prepaid tuition program. It allows you to prepay undergraduate tuition at today's rates. MET contracts are easy to set up, easy to use, and, most important, an easy way to save for college. A MET contract is one of the smartest investments you can make in a child.

    One day wasn't enough time for us to celebrate all the great benefits a 529 plan has to offer. So, this year we are celebrating May 28th and May 29th. If you open a new MET contract May 28 or May 29, 2020 and use coupon code 529DAY2020 during your online enrollment we will give you a $100 Matching Grant!  Learn more about the Match rules and eligibility requirements.

    Start saving for your child's future college tuition today. Don't miss your chance. The MET enrollment period is open December 1, 2019 to September 30, 2020.
