Welcome to the CollegeBacker Blog

We started CollegeBacker because our friends and family members felt stressed and confused about saving for college.

What is a 529? Where do I get started? Which plan is right for me? How do I even imagine paying for college – it's all so daunting!

We get it. We built CollegeBacker to make it easy to start saving, in the smartest way possible. But even if you aren't ready to start saving with us yet, we want to help you understand how to prepare financially for college.

Starting today, we will use this blog to be your guide. We'll share answers to common questions, offer helpful strategies for saving, and celebrate product updates that give you even better tools to save.

We're excited to be on this college journey with you!
