Secondary education is an important investment. A plan to begin saving for your child, grandchild or beneficiary is even more important. That’s why our Coverdell Education Savings account makes sense: It earns tax-free interest and features a low minimum balance, designed to keep you connected with what matters most.
Designed for students aged 18 and younger, this account features a low minimum balance of only $100 and tax-free1 interest potential for higher education, secondary schooling and other similar learning expenses.
The Coverdell Education Savings account is a widely embraced alternative to the 529 plan, which limits users to reallocating funds within a select portfolio range to only twice per year. Instead, this account option is different, and it allows you to choose virtually any investment you like. Ultimately, it gives you more control over and flexibility with your rate of return.
Planning – and saving – for the future just got easier. Let’s get in touch to get started today!
