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 there are monetary penalties imposed when withdrawn for other uses.

Both the Texas direct-sold 529 plan (Texas College Savings Plan) and the advisor-sold plan (Lonestar 529 Plan) are managed by NorthStar Financial Services. Texas also has a 529 prepaid tuition plans for Texas residents (Texas Tuition Promise Fund).
