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 there are monetary penalties imposed when withdrawn for other uses.
Wisconsin offers two 529 college savings plans Edvest is managed by TIAA-CREF Tuition Financing, Inc. and is available on a direct-sold basis. Voya, under contract with TIAA-CREF, manages the Tomorrow’s Scholar® 529 plan which is sold through financial advisors. Wisconsin’s 529 plans do not require Wisconsin residency. The EdVest Advisor-sold plan ceased to operate under the Edvest name in October 2012 and assets held in the plan were combined with the Tomorrow's Scholar® program.
