529 Prepaid Plans

As you are planning your expenses for each upcoming school year, be sure to include your Florida Prepaid or other 529 Prepaid College Plan estimates. If you have a Florida Prepaid Plan, you must first fill out a transfer authorization form and send this to Florida Prepaid. It takes Florida Prepaid approximately 4-6 weeks to process this form. Once Florida Prepaid has processed your form, they will send confirmation to PBA and an estimated amount will show on your student bill.

Florida Prepaid will pay private universities an average rate set by the Florida Legislature. These rates are subject to change at any time. Rates for the new academic year are not generally available until mid-August of each year. To estimate your balance due, please use the most recent published rates indicated below.

Many states and financial services institutions offer 529 savings programs for families to save money for a child’s college education. Each entity has separate rules and regulations governing how funds may be used and how to have monies sent to PBA. Always check with your provider about how and when to request release of funds, as well as what documents, such as an electronic copy of the student’s bill, are needed.

Payments from 529 plan providers should be mailed to:
