529 College Savings Plan

Why Save For College?

A college education can be the key to unlocking your child’s full potential. A good education will pay a lifetime of benefits, from income to creativity and independence. But education is an investment, and one that is getting more expensive each day.

A 529 College Savings Plan offers a tax-advantaged way to invest for the rising cost of college education.

Recipients will not pay federal income tax on the earnings while the account is invested and no federal income tax when money is withdrawn to pay for qualified college expenses at any accredited post-secondary school in the United States. Some states may offer state income tax benefits to residents. Please consult a tax advisor.

Anyone can contribute on behalf of the individual beneficiary, including parents, grandparents, other relatives and family friends. Whoever opens the account maintains control over the withdrawals, which gives three options if the beneficiary decides not to attend college: change beneficiaries, leave the assets invested in the plan for later use, or withdraw the assets (may pay penalties and taxes).
