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 there are monetary penalties imposed when withdrawn for other uses.

First National Bank of Omaha manages all four of the 529 plans that Nebraska offers. The Nebraska Education Savings Trust (NEST) is available in a direct-sold version and an advisor-sold version and employs several fund families on its investment platform. The TD Ameritrade 529 College Savings Plan is distributed through discount broker TD Ameritrade. The State Farm College Savings Plan is distributed exclusively through State Farm representatives.
