The Louisiana Office of Student Financial Assistance will hold a “529 Day Call-In Night” 6-9 p.m. Wednesday to answer questions about the state’s Student Tuition Assistance and Revenue Trust savings program or to request more information, including enrollment packets.
The “529 Day” refers to section 529 of the Internal Revenue Code, which authorizes states to offer college saving plans that include substantial federal and state tax exemptions and other incentives to save.
LOSFA will also conduct an online START Saving Plan Facebook chat during the same hours. Facebook users can participate by “liking” LOSFA and submitting questions on the LOSFA page. LOSFA staff will be online to answer all Facebook submitted questions as they are posted.
Callers from outside the Baton Rouge area can use LOSFA’s toll-free number, (800) 259-5626. Callers within the Baton Rouge area can call 219-1012.
LOSFA’s normal call-in hours for information and assistance are 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday.
