Virginia529 (VA 529) or Virginia529 College Savings Plan is the independent state agency responsible for Section 529 qualified tuition programs offered by the Commonwealth of Virginia.[1] In 2016, Morningstar gave Virginia's 529 a "silver" rating (on a scale of Gold-Silver-Bronze) based on its affiliation with CollegeAmerica and management by American Funds.[2] According to US News and World Report, Virginia's 529 offers a "whopping" 27 funds and six multi-fund options in its static track. Further, US News reports that "Morningstar applauds the plan’s low costs, relative to other advisor-sold programs."[3]
