Q&A with Bell Investments
A. For many, saving for college is a major financial goal. You may want to consider investing in a 529 college savings plan. A 529 plan gives you the option to invest in mutual funds and other investments and, if your child goes to a qualified institution, the withdrawals of the principal and earnings from the 529 for education will be tax-free. Before investing in a 529 plan, investors should carefully consider whether the investor’s or beneficiary’s home state offers any state tax or other benefits available only from that state’s 529 plan.
Let’s visit about your financial goals and plan ahead for college savings. It’s worth it for your student’s future! Call me today.

Before investing in a 529 plan, investors should consider whether the investor’s or designated beneficiary’s home state offers any state tax or other state benefits, such as financial aid, scholarship funds, and protection from creditors that are only available for investments in the state’s qualified tuition program. Withdrawals used for qualified expenses are federally tax-free. Tax treatment at the state level may vary. Please consult with your tax advisor before investing.
Investing in mutual funds involves risk, including possible loss of principal.
