Build Their Education Savings, Build Your Business

529 plans are a unique tool for tax and estate planning (e.g. accelerated gifting) and overall wealth management. Anyone can use a 529 plan to save for higher education expenses, so think beyond parents.

Grandparents, aunts and uncles, friends, or even the future student can open an account - all great leads for multigenerational planning. You can promote 529s as an investment vehicle for your existing client base and to attract prospective client.
