Save for college with an Education IRA

The Coverdell Education IRA (EIRA) allows you to set aside money for qualified post-secondary education expenses of a ‎designated beneficiary. Contributions and earnings from an EIRA account are tax-free when withdrawn, allowing you to pay for qualified education ‎expenses such as tuition, fees, books, equipment and supplies.


Eligibility and requirements:

  • Maximum EIRA contribution are $2,000 per child in a tax year.
  • Maximum is in addition to contributions to traditional and/or Roth IRAs‎.
  • If you already contribute to an IRA or Roth IRA, your contributions to an education IRA can be made on top of those other contributions1.
  • We offer several CD options for funding Coverdell IRAs, including fixed-rate and variable ‎rate accounts.
