  • Participant (Account Owner) Information: Your Social Security Number (SSN) or Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN), birth date, address and email address.
  • Beneficiary (Future Student) Information: Name and birth date of the student for whom you are saving. (If you do not have the SSN or TIN, you may provide later.)
  • Financial Information: The account number and routing information for the bank or credit union account you wish to use for your initial and ongoing contributions to your NC 529 Account. In the alternative, you can fund your account by mailing a check.
  • Program Description: (available in paper or online)
