Saving for College

If you want to save for a loved one's future college education, you may be interested in the Michigan Education Savings Program (MESP) and the Michigan Education Trust (MET). MESP was created by the State of Michigan as a tax-advantaged way to help people save for the cost of higher education. Both plans offer flexible features and tax-advantages to help you save toward a college education. The Direct Plan Manager is TIAA Tuition Financing Incorporated, a wholly owned subsidiary of Teachers Insurance and Annuity Association of America (“TIAA”), one of America’s leading financial services organizations.

To learn more about Michigan college savings plans, visit, schedule a one-on-one appointment, or attend a webinar.
