A recent NW POD meeting featured a discussion covering a variety of college issues, including use of marital 529 accounts.  Many questions came up about the ownership and transfer of 529 accounts.  Continuing the discussion, this session aims not only to address open questions about the use and transfer of 529 funds but also to demystify various other tax deferral accounts with marital dissolution implications and opportunities such as HSA's (health savings accounts), ABLE Accounts and Roth IRA Accounts.  You may not be aware, but several of those account types are intertwined and transferable.
