Wealth Management Strategies - Maximizing the Value of  529 Plans

While 529 plans were originally designed to allow families to save and invest for college, there are many features that participants may benefit from in ways most are unaware of. This presentation “turns the page” on 529s to explore their numerous benefits and the mechanics of how to maximize their value, particularly in light of the new tax laws. Income tax, gift & estate tax, creditor protection, beneficiary flexibility and other features will be discussed. It will present how the clients can get these numerous benefits for the cost of a mutual fund. The presentation will conclude with questions & answers.
