New York's College Savings Plan

All employees are eligible to participate in New York's College Savings Plan, a program designed to help families save for future college expenses, while receiving significant tax benefits. Employees may contribute to the program through payroll deduction. Program highlights include:

  • New York State tax deduction on the first $5000 contributed each year ($10,000 for married couples when each spouse opens an account);
  • Federal income taxes on investment earnings are deferred until the time of withdrawal; and
  • Qualified withdrawals are not subject to New York State taxes.

Enrollment information is available from the Human Resources Office or directly from the NYS College Savings Plan at 1-877-NYSAVES.
