529 Plans*

Tax-deferred investment growth and flexibility with beneficiaries.

While a 529 Plan often offers additional state-specific tax savings, funds can be used at accredited colleges and universities nationwide. What's more, as the plan owner you can name anyone as a beneficiary - a relative, a friend, even yourself.

Coverdell Education Savings Account (ESA)

A greater range of investment options.

The Coverdell ESA can be set up with any number of banks, mutual fund companies and other institutions. And unlike traditional college savings plans, it can be used for primary and secondary schools - both public and private. Any unused funds can be rolled over into another Coverdell ESA for other family members.

Roth IRA

Tax benefits and easier access to your funds.

While the money you deposit in a Roth IRA has already been taxed, it grows tax-free thereafter - and if used for education is available to you anytime you like, both tax-free and penalty-free. Plus, you can use any additional savings for your retirement.

* You should consider many factors before deciding which 529 Plan is most appropriate. Some of these factors include: The Plan's investment options and the historical performance of these options, the Plan's flexibility and features, the reputation and expertise of the Plan's investment manager, Plan contribution limits and the federal and state tax benefits associated with an investment in the plan. You should discuss the tax implications of 529 Plans with you legal and/or tax advisors, as features may vary significantly from state to state. While federal tax treatment of 529 Plans is identical regardless of the state Plan, state tax treatment varies. State tax treatment may vary for "in-state" and "out-of-state" residents. Generally, state tax laws affect the contributor by way of deductibility of money going into the account, and the beneficiary and/or contributor by way of the possible taxation or distributions coming out of the account. Please read the Plan Disclosure Document before investing. It includes details about the Plan's risks, charges and tax treatment. Most 529 Plans will accept both "in-state" and "out-of-state" applicants. Each stat'es 529 Plan must be evaluated based upon its own merits relative to your needs, and the tax effects on the contributor and the beneficiary.

- Some states offer benefits for residents who invest in their state's plan, including deductions for contributions and/or exemptions form state for qualified withdrawals
