Michigan Education Savings Program (MESP)
Daughter on Dad's shoulder

Nice list? Naughty list? Either way, put them on the college-bound list.

Nothing makes a child feel better than your faith in them. And with the gift of a Michigan Education Savings Program (MESP) account, you can show them you know they’re going places. And that feeling lasts a lot longer than a toy will.

There are a lot of reasons for you to feel great about an MESP account:

  • Pays for tuition, room & board, books, computers and more
  • Funds can be used at eligible institutions throughout the U.S. and abroad
  • 100% tax-free growth1

MESP is the ONLY direct-sold 529 plan that gives you state tax benefits.

You could reduce your taxable income up to $10,000 on your 2020 state tax return for contributions made by 12/31/20. Limitations apply.2

Plus it’s easy for friends and family to contribute to your child’s education:
