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 there are monetary penalties imposed when withdrawn for other uses.

Kansas’ three 529 college savings plans all use American Century Investments as program manager. The direct-sold Learning Quest 529 program is available nationally and features American Century and Vanguard mutual funds. Learning Quest Advisor is sold through financial advisors and utilizes multiple fund families in its age-based and asset-allocation portfolios while also offering a menu of 12 American Century individual-fund options. The Schwab 529 College Savings plan is also a multi-manager 529 plan, but is sold through discount broker Charles Schwab & Co.
