I was researching the 529 plans based on knowledge I had from a few years ago. I want to start one so my boy doesn't have to pay student loans for the rest of his life like this father. Somewhere, I saw you can open a 529 Plan before baby is born. When I was creating it, it made me choose myself as the beneficiary. Can you open a 529 before the child is born? He is due 9/9/19.
Congratulations on the upcoming addition, @BrentsDad. That's an excellent question. I've sent a request to a colleague in the 529 group to address this for you. Please know they aren't in the office at the moment, but will be back Monday morning. I hope you have a great weekend.
