College Planning

They grow up fast, sometimes faster than you can save. Talk to one of our Infinex Investment Consultants today about setting up a college plan that is right for you. We offer access to both 529 Plans and Coverdell Education Savings Accounts. Both plans have significant tax advantages, including earnings free from federal tax on qualified withdrawals.

You also have control of where the funds are invested, from a single fund approach to a diversified fund approach. These funds can be used for tuition, books, and/or room and board. Paying for college is harder than ever. Help your child or grandchild reach their dreams by planning now.
