Submitted by Edward Jones,
10:58AM / Wednesday, May 22, 2019

If you want to help pay for your children's college educations, you might want to consider contributing to a 529 plan. With this plan, your earnings grow federally tax-free, as long as the withdrawals are used for qualified higher education expenses such as tuition and room and board.

Yet, you may have heard some things about 529 plans that are keeping you from investing in one. However, these concerns may be more myth than reality, so let's take a look at a few of them.
