How College SaveUp works
Help ease employee stress by making contributions to their 529 savings plan.
The Gradifi team will work with you to determine if contributions, payroll deductions, or both are a good fit for your workforce. Then you pick the contribution amount and frequency and whether it increases. You can even add one-time bonuses. Gradifi then ensures that every contribution gets paid directly to your employees’ 529 plans.
Make custom contributions to your employees’ 529 college savings plans.
Enable your employees to easily save for their children’s future through payroll deductions that go straight to their direct-sold 529 plans.
