Use a 529 Plan to Offset Rising Education Costs

One of the most sound investments you can make to help pay for your child's higher education is by using a 529 plan. These funds grow in a tax-free environment, and generally have a 3-5% rate of return. The only catch is that all funds need to be used for higher education, and if not... there are monetary penalties imposed when withdrawn for other uses.

Arizona offers two direct-sold 529 college savings plans, one managed by College Savings Bank offering FDIC-insured options, and another managed by Fidelity Investments featuring its mutual funds along with a bank savings option. A third Arizona 529 plan, managed by Ivy Investment Management Company, is advisor-sold.
