What Is a Coverdell Educational Savings Account?

A Coverdell Educational Savings Account (ESA) is one of the most efficient methods for saving money for children’s education costs. Funds contributed go directly into investments geared to help pay for your children’s education from the elementary level all the way through college. Your earnings will grow tax-deferred and can be taken from the account without tax penalty to be used for schooling costs such as tuition, class materials, fees, laptops and dorm room and board. You can withdraw money for other purposes, but you will face a 10% penalty.

The sooner you are able to start investing in your child’s education, the more your investment will compound and grow to cover as much cost as possible.

Not sure if a Coverdell ESA is right for you? Take a look at the following features to help you decide.

The following features can help you decide if a Coverdell ESA is something you’d like to invest in:

  • You may create accounts on behalf of any children, even those who are not your own.
  • Contributions are allowed for any child still under the age of 18.
  • The money has to be used by the time the child had turned 30 years old (or it must be transferred to a different family member).
  • The money can be used at any time to purchase qualified school expenses.
  • You can create an account for the schooling costs of a beneficiary with special needs. (No age limitations)
  • You can contribute a maximum of $2,000 per child each year.
