Coverdell Education Savings
These accounts were formerly known as Education IRA’s, and are opened at Farmers & Merchants Bank as Certificates of Deposit. This account provides an ideal way for you to save money to help a child, grandchild, or other young person pay for higher education expenses down the road.
Contributions to a Coverdell Education Savings Account are not tax-deductible, but distributions used to pay for the qualified education costs of the named beneficiary are generally tax free. Contributions are limited to $2,000 per year, per child under the age of 18. Fees may reduce earnings.
