Employer Payroll Deduction Form
(fillable PDF)
Are you an employer looking to establish a payroll deduction plan for your employees to invest in the BlackRock CollegeAdvantage 529 Savings Plan? Providing us with this completed form will help us to establish your company in our system and to assign a “Company Code”, with which we can link the Accounts of your employees. Talk with your Financial Advisor about the benefits of setting up a payroll deduction plan.
Incoming Rollover Form
(fillable PDF)
Are you funding your Account with assets from another qualified 529 Savings Plan, an UTMA/UGMA, or maybe from qualified U.S. savings bonds? You will need to complete this form and submit it along with your New Account Application. You may need this form again in the future if you wish to roll other assets into your existing BlackRock CollegeAdvantage Account.
New Account Application
(fillable PDF)
Used to establish an Account in the BlackRock CollegeAdvantage 529 Savings Plan, this application will provide us with the name, tax identification/Social Security number of the Account Owner and the Beneficiary of the Account, as well as providing information on your Investment Option elections, how you will fund the account, and more. If you are planning on funding your Account with an Automatic Investment Plan, you will need to complete that section of the New Account Application.
Payroll Deduction Authorization Form
(fillable PDF)
You may also fund your Account by having your employer deduct directly from your payroll, and send the money to your Account. This will require two forms, initially: The Payroll Deduction Authorization Form provides us with information about the contributor to the Account, the employer handling the payroll deduction, and how to invest the money when it arrives.

But to begin a payroll deduction plan, please make sure your company offers this service to their employees. If your company has not yet established a corporate payroll deduction plan, they will need to complete the Employer Payroll Deduction Form.

Change of Registration Form
(fillable PDF)
Is it time to update the Account Owner or Beneficiary listed on your account? Do you need to change a name due to marriage, divorce, etc? You can use this form to make any of those changes plus add or change a Successor Owner on the account.
Contribution Slip
(fillable PDF)
This form is used to make a contribution to any existing BlackRock 529 account.
Reallocation Request Form
(fillable PDF)
You would use this form to reallocate your Investment Options, or to establish a Systematic Reallocation.

Withdrawal Request Form

At some point, you will need to take money out of your BlackRock CollegeAdvantage Account to pay for higher education expenses. To do this, you will need to complete the Withdrawal Request Form.
