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 there are monetary penalties imposed when withdrawn for other uses.

Missouri’s direct-sold 529 savings plan is managed by Ascensus College Savings and uses mutual funds from Vanguard. Missouri's advisor-sold plan closed in May 2016 and all assets were moved to the direct-sold plan.
