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 there are monetary penalties imposed when withdrawn for other uses.

New Jersey has two 529 savings programs, both managed by Franklin Templeton Investments. One 529 plan is direct-sold and available only to New Jersey residents (NJBEST), and the other is sold nationwide through financial advisors (Franklin Templeton 529 College Savings Plan).
