Watch your education savings grow as your child grows.

Education Funding

If you have a young (or not so young) scholar in your life, funding his or her education is likely one of your major financial considerations. In the face of rising tuition costs, it is important to understand the savings options available for parents, grandparents, and anyone else who wants to invest in a student's future.

Your Alerus Wealth Management financial advisor will work closely with you, your accountant, and any others who may have helpful insights, to build a college funding plan that is tailored to your unique needs, whether paying for college is an immediate concern or a long-term goal.

Receive tax-free earning on investment and tax-free withdrawals, if the funds are used for tuition, housing, and other college expenses.

The Uniform Transfers to Minors Act allows you to set aside assets for the benefit of a minor without creating a trust. At age 18 or 21 (depending on where you live), the assets become the child's property.

Coverdell ESAs can be used to fund elementary, secondary or college education. We'll show you the difference between these and 529 plans.
