However, there are no compensation requirements or age restrictions for those who wish to contribute. Contributions cannot exceed $2,000 annually per child.
*Education expenses are classified as tuition; fees, books, supplies and equipment required for the enrollment or attendance at an eligible higher education institution are qualified expenses.

Elementary and Secondary education includes kindergarten through grade 12 at public, private or religious school as determined by state law. Allowable expenses such as tuition, fees, books, supplies, equipment and room and board all qualify.

A rollover, direct rollover or transfer will allow you to move your assets from one tax-advantaged retirement plan into another. This will allow you to avoid possible income and penalty taxes and continue tax-deferred growth until withdrawn. There are unique differences with each type so we recommend you consult your tax or legal advisor to see which option is best for you.
- Rollover assets are paid directly to the IRA owner
- The exact amount removed from one IRA must be deposited into a like IRA within 60 calendar days of receipt to avoid a penalty. The 60-day period begins the day after you receive the distribution
- You may only transact one (1) rollover during any twelve month period, per IRA account
- This transaction type is reported to the IRS when the asset exits and enters the account(s)
- Used to transfer a qualified employer plan into an IRA or another qualified employer
- IRS reporting will occur
- Assets are paid directly to the IRA or other qualified employer plan without you having custody of the assets
- If the entire amount of the qualified employer plan is directly rolled into an IRA, there will be no federal income tax withhold
- Distribution amounts you choose to retain from a qualified employer plan, not included in your direct roll over, may be subject to a 20 percent federal income tax withholding at time of distribution, may be taxed as ordinary income and may incur a 10 percent additional penalty tax if younger than 59 ½
- Rollovers of qualified employer plans to Roth IRAs are generally taxed as ordinary income but avoid the 10 percent penalty tax
- Occurs when IRA assets are moved directly from one IRA to another IRA without the account owner having custody of the assets
- There are no limits to the number of transfers you may do in a year
- Does not generate the IRS reporting that occurs with a Rollover
