529 College Savings Accounts

StreetCred supports you in saving for your child’s future. We know you have big dreams for your kids and that raising them is financially stressful. We want to help you reach your goals!

We offer:

  • Enrollment in 529 college savings accounts (takes 15-20 minutes)
  • Get $50 free from the state of Massachusetts if your child is < 1 year old and born after January 1st, 2020 or was adopted less than 1 year ago

The benefits of 529 accounts:

  • No taxes
  • Invested in index funds to help your money grow faster than in a regular savings account
  • You will never owe money on the account
  • Won’t affect your eligibility for other resources like SNAP or WIC
