State employees can open an account with New York's 529 Direct Plan with just $15 through payroll deduction, or with $25, if you plan to contribute on your own. An added benefit to enrolling in the Direct Plan is the generous deduction on your New York State income tax return if you are the account owner. Also take advantage of the Upromise rewards, a free service that gives you back a percentage of your qualified spending on groceries, gasoline, and other goods and services.
