529 College Savings Plan
If you're thinking about meeting soaring college expenses in the years ahead, you might consider the 529 College Savings Plan. Plans are allowed under the Internal Revenue Code and sponsored by individual states, these plans allow higher contributions than education savings accounts. PeoplesFinancial and Insurance Services can show you how this innovative program allows you to put aside significant sums of money that can grow tax-free until withdrawn for qualified education expenses.* It also provides considerable estate planning benefits. So, it's both a great way to help your children or grandchildren get the higher education they need, and a smart way to lower estate taxes.
For more information, on our 529 College Savings Plans contact one of our PeoplesFinancial and Insurance Services Representatives.
*Nonqualified withdrawals subject to ordinary income tax upon withdrawal as well as a 10% IRS penalty.
