Understanding Coverdell ESAs
In 2002, the Education IRA was renamed the Coverdell Education Savings Account.
These accounts work very much like a 529 plan, offering tax-free investment growth and tax-free withdrawals when the funds are spent on qualified education expenses. However, in addition to college expenses, certain K-12 purchases are also considered qualified when using a Coverdell ESA.
