Make a Withdrawal

You are ready to use your savings. You can either request a check or transfer to another bank via Automated Clearing House (ACH). All requests must be made by the account owner. Franklin Templeton does not take distribution instructions from a beneficiary.

Please note that for your initial distribution directly to a school, you must call us or submit your request in writing. After this initial request, you may make future distributions via your online account.



Log in to your account. Once logged in, scroll down to your Education Savings Portfolios, and from the drop down, choose Sell Shares.
