Add to Your GET Account
You’ve already taken that important step of planning ahead for future college expenses. The information below provides tips on maximizing your college savings and managing your GET account(s).
Four easy ways to boost your GET account
- Make additional Lump Sum contributions at any time. It’s easy to add to your college savings by logging in to your online GET account. Annually, June 25th is the last day to add funds at that enrollment year’s unit price. After that date, the unit price is subject to change. The unit price for the 2020-21 enrollment period is $133.
- Consider increasing your payroll deduction or automatic withdrawal amount. Adjust your amounts now to keep your savings on target. Even small amounts add up over time.
- Add a Custom Monthly Plan during the regular enrollment period (Nov 1 - May 31 annually). Choose a monthly payment that works best for your budget, lock in the current unit price and have the convenience of paying over time (note that Custom Monthly Plans include a 5.5% finance charge). You can always adjust your contract if your financial situation changes.
- Ask family and friends to help. They can easily make contributions to your GET account for special occasions such as birthdays and holidays.
There are several payment options available when you want to add to your account.
- Set up or change your automatic bank withdrawal (ACH)
- One-time payment online
- Set up or change your payroll deduction amount
- View list of employers offering GET payroll deduction (bottom of page)
- Overnight using FedEx or UPS
