Prepaid Tuition…. An Alluring Pitch

The prepaid programs that allow you to pay for college at today’s rates to be able to avoid future increases when your child does go to college may be too good to be true.  Prepaid plans are a subset of state-sponsored 529 plans that allow tax-free investing for college.  The majority of 529s are “savings-type” plans offering a menu of mutual funds that can leave a family open to loss if the stock and bond markets fare poorly.  But, many so-called prepaid tuition plans charge considerably more than the current rate and do not guarantee that a year’s worth of credit bought today will cover expenses years later.  Prepaid plans are meant to serve families who want to minimize risk. But there’s no guarantee a prepaid plan will be the best choice. If the stock market takes off, with gains exceeding college tuition hikes, a savings-type 529 will fare much better. Still, a prepaid plan that doesn’t charge a hefty premium and offers strong protections is worth considering when evaluating your college savings options.
