The TNStars College Savings 529 Program was launched in September 2012 to encourage Tennessee families to save and invest for the future cost of higher education in a tax-advantaged way. Families can open an account with as little as $25 to start. Over the past 10 years, TNStars has helped Tennessee families save more than $250 million for college in over 23,000 accounts.
“As Treasurer, I wanted to be sure Tennessee had a low-cost way to save for college,” said Tennessee Treasurer David H. Lillard, Jr., first elected in 2009. “We are proud of the exceptional growth TNStars has seen in the past decade and pleased to provide Tennesseans an easy way to save and invest for higher education.”
TNStars is designed to give Tennessee families high-quality investment options at a low cost to help them put aside money for higher education expenses. Families can invest directly with the program and money can be withdrawn tax-free from a TNStars account as long as it is used for qualified post-secondary education expenses.
