Our CDs are federally insured and make for a fantastic and secure way to save up money for your child’s future.
A Coverdell Education Savings Account (ESA) can help give your child the gift of education.
- Unlike state 529 plans, Coverdell ESAs can be used to pay for qualified elementary and secondary education expenses, including tuition, fees, books, supplies, equipment, and in some cases, room and board and computers.
- Earnings grow on a tax-deferred basis and distributions are tax-free if the money is used to pay for qualified education expenses.
The Coverdell ESA’s sole purpose is to help you pay for your child’s education expenses.
