College Saving Plans

Your child’s college tuition may be one of your life’s biggest expenses. With tuition prices going up every year, it is essential that you start developing a college savings plan as soon as possible. One of the best ways to save for education expenses is to open a 529 college savings plan. This is a state-sponsored savings vehicle, which allows for tax-free growth and tax-free distributions on qualified expenses like tuition and fees. Noble Wealth Management helps families in the Kennewick, WA area create personalized savings strategies which may include investing in a 529 plan. We assess your unique financial situation and goals in order to create a plan that makes sense for you and your family.

You may invest in any state’s 529 program, not just your own. Here in Washington, the GET program guarantees that the value of your account will keep pace with the cost of college tuition, no matter how much or how quickly it rises. The earlier you invest, the greater opportunity you have to grow your college savings. When compared to many other savings vehicles, 529 college savings plans offer the greatest tax advantages.

Saving Money For College In Now More Important Than Ever

Saving Money For College In Now More Important Than Ever

College tuition and fees are still on the rise, with no sign of slowing down. By investing in a 529 college savings plan today, you can create a hedge against those rising costs in order to provide your child with an affordable education. These plans work similarly to a Roth account. They invest your after-tax contributions into stock and bond mutual funds and other similar investments. Most plans offer several options for the investor to choose from based on their risk tolerance, investment horizon, and growth goals. The money in the 529 plan will go up or down based on the performance of the investments. At Noble Wealth Management, we can help you select investment options that match your unique needs and circumstances.

The Benefits Of A 529 College Savings Plan

The Benefits Of A 529 College Savings Plan

  • Contributions are not tax-deductible, however, the earnings made in a 529 college savings plan grow tax-free
  • You do not pay taxes on distributions from 529 accounts as long as they are used for qualified expenses (paying for college)
  • If you invest in another savings vehicle, such as a mutual fund, you will pay yearly income taxes as well as capital gains taxes when you withdraw
  • In most cases, your child or beneficiary can’t legally access the funds in the account, so you know it won’t get used for the wrong purposes
  • The account owner (you) can withdraw funds at any time, for any reason, however, you will incur taxes when withdrawals are non-qualified (not for college tuition)
