Great app. Great experience!!!
I have 2 young kids and have been thinking about the college savings account since they were born but didn’t know where to start. I have been referred to U-nest by a friend of mine and I couldn’t be happier. Everything is done through the app and I mean EVERYTHING from start to finish. I love how easy it is to use and navigate the app. All the info you need is right there. You can start slow with as low as $25/monthly and you can add lump sums whenever your budget allows. Each kid has a separate profile on the app and you can easily see how much money they have at the moment in there. There are also tools right there in app that project how much your kid will have by the time they go to college if you continue at the “current” pace. By clicking around I was able to find where exactly the money is invested. I also get paper monthly statements in the mail. All in all great app!
First time investing - excellent experience!
U-nest is our first and excellent experience of investing money through an app. Great source to save money for my kids education. The growth and the ability to withdraw the money all tax-free for qualified education expenses mean that every dollar I contribute can multiply faster and cover a greater portion of my kids education expenses. Very easy and quick! Love being able to see the amount my child will have by the time she’s in college. Finding room in our budget for college savings can be difficult, so with U-nest savings plan that is not requiring a significant minimum investment, we can save 25 dollars per month until we are able to save more. We will definitely be using this app from now on since it’s so convenient for us and all family members!
College Saving made Simple!
An app that finally provides a solution to college savings. U-Nest makes it extremely easy to signup for a 529 account and easily connected to my bank so I can make my monthly contributions. I was also able to make separate accounts for my kids and the U-Nest calculator helped me calculate the exact amount I need to save each month. I now have peace of mind when it comes to saving for my kids college. Thank you U-Nest for creating this app!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
