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 there are monetary penalties imposed when withdrawn for other uses.

Kentucky's 529 plan, KY Saves 529, is managed by Ascensus College Savings and features an age-based option, four static options, and an FDIC-insured option. Kentucky’s 529 prepaid program (KAPT) was closed to new enrollments at the end of 2004.
