Entergy believes in the dreams of the families we serve. Everyone deserves the opportunity to continue their education and, as a corporate leader and service provider, we want to partner with families to help make those dreams a reality.
Entergy offers a child savings account through the Kids to College powered by Entergy program. This program will establish 8,000 child savings accounts for families in our four-state service area designed specifically for post-secondary education. Eligible families can sign up for a Kids to College my529 account with the help of our community partners and a $50 match from Entergy.
Child savings accounts allow families to put money away to start saving for their children to attend a two- or four-year college, trade school or technical school. When a family plans for their child’s future by setting aside funds for college, the child is four times more likely to complete a degree.
You can open an account free of charge, invest your savings and watch it grow. Once the beneficiary has reached 18 years of age, the money can be used for tuition and other qualified expenses.
Qualified families will receive Entergy's $50 match so that the families who need it most are served.
Kids to College match participants must meet the following eligibility criteria:
- Child is 16 years of age or younger.
- Family is an Entergy customer.
- Family has an annual income at or below $52,000 for single-earner households and $60,000 for dual-earner households.
- Family opens a my529 account for a child or multiple children in the household (one account per child).
- Family saves at least $50 per account.
