Education IRA Helps With Education Expenses

Are you worried about whether you will be able to help your children or (perhaps) grandchildren with college expenses when the time comes? Start now and be prepared with an Education IRA.

Up to $2,000 can be contributed to an Education IRA for children under age 18. Unfortunately, the contributions aren’t tax deductible; however, they and their earnings can be withdrawn tax-free as long as they are used to pay eligible schooling expenses.

Any adult (parents, grandfolks, godparents or friends) may put money in a child’s Education IRA; however, the total put into the account from all sources cannot exceed $2,000 per year. Money to be used for primary education and college expenses may include: pre-college expenses, tuition, room & board, books, computers and more.
