How to Get Started

Step 1: Click on “Take the Pledge Today”

Simply visit our website at www.fundmyfuturepa.org and click on “Take the Savings Pledge”

 

Step 2: Setting up a Bank Account or a PA 529

*If you have a child’s savings account, please skip to step 3

The next step is setting up a long-term savings account for your child’s future that you do not make withdrawals from. If you don’t already have a bank account or a PA 529 plan, you have several options:

 

Option A: Going to a Branch

Set up an account at a bank branch. This could be a bank that you already have an account with or a bank in a convenient location for you to access. Almost all banks have custodial accounts for children’s long-term savings that you can open by going into a bank branch. Please see a FMF team member for an overview of savings accounts at banks in this region.

 

Option B: Opening an Account Online

You can also open a PA 529 plan online at pa529.com.
