For Employees

Employees of Dun & Bradstreet Credibility Corp. have the opportunity to invest in our children’s futures while supporting local schools through the EdAhead educational savings program.
Here’s how it works:
  • EdAhead makes it simple to save through a “set it and forget it” payroll deduction to a 529 savings plan.
  • Dun & Bradstreet Credibility will annually match (the “Match”) your contributions up to the maximum outlined in the plan documents. The company will additionally help offset the taxes incurred by this Match.
  • The Match to employees will be added to their 529 account annually, at the end of each calendar year (on or about December 31st).
  • Once the matching funds have been placed in your account, the dollars belong to you.
  • You must be employed on the date that the annual match funds are placed in accounts to receive that year’s Match.
  • Employee contributions activate a second aggregate per office match based on the matchable amount of each employee’s contribution — and will be donated to the local public school system where that office operates.

Since the program is based around a 529 education fund (with some obvious tweaks), the money within the fund may only be used for higher educational purposes. Who qualifies? Glad you asked…

  • A 529 account may be opened to benefit your own dependent children, or for other family members, or even the children of friends.
  • You can even open an account for your own education purposes.
  • Other people can contribute to your 529 savings plan so if your child’s grandparents want to put money in they can — but the Match is only for the funds that you put in.
  • See plan documents for details and tax information.
And don’t forget the employer match that goes to public schools! The local EdAhead Match Districts eligible to receive funds from their corresponding offices are as follows:
  • Bethlehem Area School District
  • Guilford County Schools
  • Millburn Township Public Schools
  • Santa Monica/Malibu Unified School District
  • Tempe Elementary School District/TempeUnion High School District
  • Tucson Unified School District
