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 there are monetary penalties imposed when withdrawn for other uses.

The Delaware College Investment Plan is managed by Fidelity Investments. Three sets of age-based and two static investment options are available in this 529 plan. Age-based portfolios invest in actively-managed Fidelity mutual funds, actively-managed mutual funds that are a combination of Fidelity and Third Party funds, and and a third option invests in Fidelity index funds. Two static options invest in actively-managed or index funds. A bank savings option is also available.
