The Mississippi Affordable College Savings Program, MACS, makes giving the gift of college easy and affordable. This state-sponsored savings program helps Mississippi families save for future college expenses such as tuition, books, supplies, and certain room and board expenses. You can start saving for as little as $25.
MACS offers you a choice of five investment options:
- Managed Allocation Option
- Diversified Equity Option
- Fixed Income Option
- Guaranteed Option
- Age-Based Investment Option
These options vary in their investment strategy and risk level, allowing you to select an option that best fits your needs and investment preference.
Anyone can open a MACS account for a child or loved one. Parents, grandparents, relatives, and friends at any income level can open an account. Also, by opening and contributing to a MACS account you qualify for a Mississippi state tax deduction.
The Mississippi Affordable College Savings Program can be a powerful part of your overall investment strategy. Consider making regular, modest contributions with the Automatic Contribution Plan or Automatic Payroll Deduction, which may be offered by your employer.
