Before you save with one of Washington's plans, consider whether your or the beneficiary's home state offers any state tax or other benefits such as financial aid, scholarship funds and protection from creditors that are only available for investments in that state's 529 plan. You also may wish to contact your home state's 529 Plan(s), or any other 529 Plan, to learn more about those plans' features, benefits and limitations. Keep in mind that state-based benefits should be one of many appropriately weighted factors to be considered when making an investment decision. In addition, you should periodically assess, and if appropriate, adjust your Section 529 Plan investment choices with your time horizon, risk tolerance and investment objectives in mind.
