Common College Savings Plans

529 College Savings Plan

529 College Savings Investment plans offer tax-free withdrawals when the money is used toward college education expenses. 529 plans come in two forms: pre-paid tuition plans and college savings plans.

Coverdell Education Savings Account (ESA)

Coverdell Education Savings Accounts (ESAs) allow annual contributions up to $2,000 to the beneficiary. The contributions can be invested tax-deferred and the proceeds withdrawn are tax free when used toward designated educational purchases. In addition to college tuition, ESAs may be used for K-12 expenses in certain situations.

Gifting

The Uniform Gifts to Minors Act allows tax-free contributions up to $15,000 annually to a beneficiary without the need for a trust. Typically, these accounts cannot be accessed by the child until he or she turns 18.
