The 529 savings plans allow an account holder (that’s you, parent!) to set up an account for a student (your little one) for the purpose of paying for eligible college expenses. Investment options often include stock mutual funds, bond mutual funds and money market funds. These shift toward more conservative investments, so you you’ll start seeing your account stabilize as the account beneficiary (again, your little one) gets closer to college age.
