Kansas Postsecondary Education Savings Program

The Kansas Postsecondary Education Savings Program was created by the 1999 Kansas Legislature.

Kansas offers three 529 plans: Learning Quest and Learning Quest Advisor which are managed by American Century Investments and the Schwab 529 Plan which is managed by American Century Investments and distributed by Charles Schwab & Co., Inc.   Each offers education savings accounts to help you pay higher education expenses for individuals that you designate or for yourself. The program also provides tax advantages under both Kansas and federal law. Kansas taxpayers may take an annual deduction of up to $3,000 ($6,000 for married, filing jointly) from Kansas adjusted gross income for contributions into each beneficiary's Learning Quest, Learning Quest Advisor, or Schwab 529 account or contributions to a 529 plan sponsored by any other state.
