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 there are monetary penalties imposed when withdrawn for other uses.

The Tennessee State Treasury Department operates a direct-sold multi-manager 529 plan (TNStars College Savings 529 Program). The unit-type prepaid tuition program for Tennessee residents was closed to new contributions in November 2010.
