College Investment Plans

Of all the investments you make over your lifetime, your children’s education is one of the most important. Set them up for success with a 529 Plan or a Coverdell ESA, both of which allow any money you earn to grow tax-free. You won’t pay taxes on your withdrawals either, as long as you put the money toward a qualified education expense. Coverdell ESAs and 529 Plans give your money a chance to compound faster, and valuable tax benefits enable you tokeep more of what you earn.

Whether college is just around the corner or years away, now is the time to start saving.
