We're continuing our college series with an in-depth discussion of 529 plans.
529 plans are incredibly popular in all their permutations. (Many people who are currently participating in a 529 plan don't actually realize it because they refer to it as a pre-paid tuition program.)
They're also under attack. President Obama's most recent budget proposal targeted them for change. (It also targeted Coverdell ESAs.)
Personally, I think 529 plans are often misused and mis-applied. The majority of the mass affluent who participate are simply not getting a huge benefit in exchange for giving up the freedom and flexibility of the money.
But, there are a number of things that can be done with these accounts that are really unique.
