The cost of education continues to climb. If you have children, you may be concerned about how you can pay for their higher education. You can’t afford to overlook any options that may help you save. One savings tool that is frequently overlooked is the Education Savings Account (ESA).
Here are 15 things you need to know about ESAs.
1. You may establish an ESA with the custodian of your choice. The paperwork is very comparable to the paperwork required to establish an IRA.
2. Contributions to the account go toward the educational expenses of a designated beneficiary of a child under the age of 18. Contributions may be made for designated beneficiaries older than 18 if they have special needs.
