American Heritage Education Savings Account

American Heritage members with children can do a lot for their kids by putting money into an Education Savings Account.

People with college degrees out-earn their non-college contemporaries by a wide margin. However, the cost of college continues to escalate, with tuition and fees ranging from $8,000 to $50,000 per year. When you add in the cost of housing and other expenses, many students and their families opt for student loans that will take years to pay off.

The best way to finance college is to start saving early, and let the savings grow in an interest-bearing account. Parents who meet income requirements can contribute up to $2,000 per year per child under 18 years of age for a qualified higher education account, as well as for certain elementary and secondary schools. As an added benefit, your contributions are tax-free.

American Heritage partners with companies to provide Education Savings Accounts, like the Coverdell Educational Savings Account (ESA) and the 529 College Savings Plan, that deliver good earnings and provide your family with tax advantages even as you save.
