Every little bit counts!

NextGen is Maine's Section 529 college savings plan, which many families use to plan for higher education expenses. It's never too early to start planning ahead for future education expenses, and opening a NextGen account now can help to make a big difference later.

Anyone can open a NextGen account.

Parents, grandparents and even family friends can open an account, no matter their income or the age of the student. You can also open an account to invest for your own higher education expenses.

NextGen Investment Plan Options

The NextGen Client Direct Series is available for self-directed investors - those who do not seek professional advice about choosing among the available NextGen investment portfolios.

The NextGen Client Select Series is available for those investors seeking professional advice from a financial advisor.

Please remember there's always the potential of losing money when you invest in securities.
