"Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think!”
– Albert Einstein
Planning for a child’s educational expenses is a monumental gift that keeps on giving. Opening a 529 College Savings Plan opens a world of opportunities that can prep a younger generation for a successful future.
Investors should carefully consider investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses. This and other important information is contained in the fund prospectuses, summary prospectuses and 529 Product Program Description, which can be obtained from a financial professional and should be read carefully before investing. Depending on your state of residence, there may be an in-state plan that offers tax and other benefits which may include financial aid, scholarship funds, and protection from creditors.. Before investing in any state's 529 plan, investors should consult a tax professional. If withdrawals from 529 plans are used for purposes other than qualified education, the earnings will be subject to a 10% federal tax penalty in addition to federal and, if applicable, state income tax.
