529 Plans are awesome savings vehicle for college. Imagine that you are parents of a brand new baby like my new granddaughter. You have 18 years to save for a financial event whose cost is growing exponentially. You need to save money using the most efficient, most tax advantaged methods available. That would be the 529 College Savings Plans offered by all states. Watch my video to get an overview of these plans and then go to the website http://www.savingforcollege.com to spend about three days combing through the fascinating collection of all things 529. I think they should offer a t-shirt which reads “ OMG...529!”. I admire dedicated people. *Note: The rules changed regarding how 529 ownership is regarded for families who fill out the FAFSA (everyone should!). Now 529 plans owned by the child are assessed at the same rate as parent-owned 529 plans. This means that both parent-owned and child-owned 529 plans are assessed at 5.6% in order to establish an EFC for that particular school year. However, schools that use both the FAFSA and the CSS Profile financial aid forms are free to formulate their own EFC's. Because of this, a CSS Profile college can assess 529 plans differently no matter who owns the plans. Assessment rates can run from 0% to as much as 25% (or more) on a case by case basis.
