Coverdell Education Savings Account
A Coverdell Education Savings Account is a type of Individual Retirement Account that is designed to help parents and students save for education expenses. You can contribute up to $2,000 per year, per child (income limits may reduce the amount you can contribute). Accounts can be opened with as little as $100.
- Contributions to this account are not tax deductible, but contributions grow tax free until they are distributed
- Distributions are tax free as long as they are less than the student's qualified education expenses, such as tuition, books and fees
- Eligible educational institutions include most public and private primary and secondary schools, and most colleges, universities and vocational schools
- Funds can be invested in a fixed-rate or variable-rate Time Deposit IRA and are FDIC insured up to $250,000 per individual account owner
