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 there are monetary penalties imposed when withdrawn for other uses.

Connecticut offers a direct-sold 529 college savings plan without residency restrictions, managed by TIAA-CREF, and an advisor-sold 529 savings program that is open only to Connecticut residents, managed by Hartford Life.
