    College Savings Accounts - Plan Ahead!

    It's never too early to start thinking about your child's education, and to get them involved in the process. Consider a savings program, such as a 529 Plan (A 529 plan is a tax-advantaged savings plan designed to encourage saving for future college costs. 529 plans, legally known as “qualified tuition plans,” are sponsored by states, state agencies, or educational institutions and are authorized by Section 529 of the Internal Revenue Code. For more info visit SEC.gov).

    Idaho's College Saving Program is called IDeal.
