Education Savings Accounts

Coverdell ESA Plans

Education expenses don’t seem as daunting 
when you have a smart savings plan.

Coverdell Education Savings Plans: Smart Savings

A Coverdell ESA is a savings account that is opened in a child’s name to help save for education-related expenses.

  • Anyone can contribute, including parents, guardians, relatives and friends.
  • Total annual contribution limit (all sources combined) is $2,000 per year.
  • Contributions may be made until the child reaches age 18.
  • Funds in the account grow tax-free.
  • No tax on distributions if they are less than the beneficiary’s qualified education expenses at an eligible institution.
  • Funds must be used by age 30 or transferred to an ESA benefitting another child in the family.
