You can’t put a price tag on your children and grandchildren’s dreams. But, studies show that workers with an advanced education can earn more. In fact, the typical employee with a bachelor’s degree earns about twice as much as someone with only a high school diploma.

That’s why there’s the Utah Educational Savings Plan (UESP). UESP, Utah’s 529 college savings plan, makes it a cinch to start saving for college. UESP requires no minimum deposits or balances, so families can save a little or a lot, according to their own schedules. It’s a great thing to do with all that pocket change.

Because our institution values education, we encourage you to learn more about UESP by (1) viewing a slide show; (2) visiting; or (3) calling 1.800.418.2551. UESP allows you to contribute by payroll deduction*, check, or automatically from your bank account.

*Direct deposit into a Zion's Bank account set up through UESP. 

If you are ready to sign up now for UESP, you must first open an account by completing an Account Agreement.  After you have received your UESP account number, set up on-line account access by following these nine easy steps. WSU's employer code is:  WSU529
