A staff member at a state legislative office asked about college savings accounts created for children at birth. Our response includes an overview of academic research on college savings accounts, research on a state pilot program, a review of state sponsored or assisted college savings accounts, and a brief table that charts common features of state programs regarding college savings accounts. To provide timely assistance to our constituents, State Information Requests are typically completed in 24 hours. They reflect an issue scan versus a comprehensive analysis.
