Estate Planning And The 529 Plan

A 529 education plan is a great way to start saving money for a child's education and can be a valuable estate planning tool. For estate planning purposes, a 529 education plan can be used to reduce estate taxes if estate taxes are an issue for you or prepare for your child's education in the event you die before your child becomes old enough to get a secondary education. In estate planning, it is important to look at all the "what if" scenarios and try to prepare for those scenarios. It is the same with a 529 plan. One "what if" scenario that must be addressed is what if the 529 funds outlast the child's 529 education plan. The Wall Street Journal has a great article covering this very "what if" scenario. The article entitled, "What to Do With Leftovers in 529 Plans," written by Georgette Jasen gives options enabling an individual to make an educated decision if a 529 plan ends up with "leftover" funds.

Thank you for sharing. Navigating your way through intricate financial and real estate assets can be daunting for even the most knowledgeable people. Your best bet is to rely on a professional estate lawyer for the management of your estate's assets.

If you are buying any land or plot and you will get in trouble and the other party charge you for some kind of fraud , and you have been sent for jail without any reason then, you should hire a Bail bondsman to get yourself out from the jail and deposit the collateral as ordered by the court.
