Do I open a Upromise account in my name?

Yes, open an account in your name and add the student(s) or other beneficiary(ies) you are saving for on the Profile page of your Upromise account.  If you are saving for yourself, just enter your own name.

A Upromise account can only be opened in the name of a single individual.  The account owner should be the person that will manage the account and is the only person that will have access to the account information.
