The back-to-school season can be a great time to consider how you plan to help your children or grandchildren fund their higher education.
529 plans are a popular savings vehicle. They have continued to gain popularity since the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act changed. This change allows distributions to be used to cover the cost of school attendance. This includes public, private, or religious K-12 schools, in addition to higher education.
A Roth IRA can also be a viable option to help fund college expenses. While a 529 plan does come with special tax breaks, a Roth IRA can provide more flexibility. This could allow you to earmark as much or as little as you want for higher education expenses.
