New opportunities for 529 plan owners
04:10PM / Tuesday, May 03, 2022
If you want to provide educational opportunities for your children or grandchildren, you may want to consider investing in a 529 plan.

As the owner of the plan, you can essentially name any beneficiary you want, and you're free to change the beneficiary as needed. Contribution limits are quite high, so you can put away considerable sums in a 529 plan – and you may want to, because college costs have risen steadily over the years. In fact, for the
