Delaware 529 College Savings Plan

Delaware College Investment Plan

The Delaware 529 plan is known as the Delaware College Investment Plan and is run by Fidelity Investments. Any investment earnings grow tax-deferred and as long as the distributions are used for acceptable educational expenses, they will be Federal tax free. Residents of any state may open a Delaware 529 account, but you should probably check your own state's plan to see if there are better tax benefits available.

Accounts may be opened with as little as $500, though if you sign up for automatic deposits, you can do so for as little as $50 per month. There is a maintenance fee of $20 per year, which is waived if you use the automatic deposit or if a beneficiary's accounts are worth over $25,000. There is a maximum of $270,000 per beneficiary.

For more information on Delaware's 529 College Savings Plan, visit Fidelity's Delaware College Investment Plan webpage. You should also check with a financial advisor and tax advisor to see if a 529 investment is right for you.
