§ Funds in a 529 savings account can also be used for payments toward the principal and interest of a qualified student loan (up to a $10,000 lifetime maximum per individual) for the beneficiary and each of the beneficiary's siblings. Beginning in 2024, unused funds held in a 529 account can be rolled over to a Roth IRA (individual retirement account) for the beneficiary if the account meets certain requirements. Penalty-free rollovers can be made if the account has been open for more than 15 years, and the amount to be rolled over must have been in the account for a minimum of five years. This rollover allowance has a $35,000 lifetime cap per beneficiary.
Investments are not FDIC-insured, nor are they deposits of or guaranteed by a bank or any other entity, so they may lose value.
