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 there are monetary penalties imposed when withdrawn for other uses.
Michigan offers a direct-sold 529 savings plan (MESP) and an advisor-sold 529 plan (MI 529 Advisor). Michigan also offers a prepaid tuition program (MET) open to Michigan beneficiaries.
|State Plan Name:||Michigan Education Savings Program|
|Maximum Contribution:||$500,000 per beneficiary, across accounts|
|Fees:||No enrollment or account maintenance fees; 0.07% program management fees (0.02% manager fee plus 0.05% state fee)|
