Get the “411” on 529s…
From www.vshcpa.com: Saving for college with 529 plans can be a great idea for families. Here are a few common mistakes people make and what you can do to avoid them:
* Assuming the university will withdraw from the plan for you – You must tell the plan how to disperse the money whether it’s a disbursement to you, the student, or the university.
* Not allowing enough time for distributions – It may take up to two weeks to receive funds, so you don’t want to wait until tuition is due to request a check.
