Savoie said, “My account has not been updated.” He added, “There’s still a lot of confusion out there among account holders.” The Maryland 529 Executive Director Anthony Savia said that 419 out of 480 accounts had reported facing further problems that had been reviewed and addressed. Savia had said, “It has taken time to resolve this issue because it was important to ensure that the trust accounts were carefully prioritised and assessed. Quality control measures were put in place to correct the calculation and ensure accurate reporting going forward.” He further showed his confidence by saying, “the calculation formula has been corrected.” The office even declared that the current priority is to consider a discussion with the account holders and the customer staff to resolve the issue at the earliest.
