Massachusetts 529 Tax Benefit
Massachusetts' U.Fund College Investing Plan, a Fidelity-managed 529 plan follows the same approach as other Fidelity plans in Arizona, Connecticut, Delaware and New Hampshire. It features three age-based options; one using Fidelity Series actively managed funds; one using Fidelity Series index funds; and a third using a combination of the two. The plan also offers 11 static options, and an option that invests in an interest-bearing deposit account....
The Massachusetts U.Plan Prepaid Tuition Program, not a true 529 plan, issues Massachusetts general obligation bonds (federal and MA state tax-free) which will be accepted at participating Massachusetts institutions in payment of tuition.
