I just heard about this a couple weeks ago and think that it is a great option. The question I have about it is what do you do if the kid doesn't want to go to school in the state that you have the account. Seems like a bit of a risk to me.

Hi Jill-- This is a common concern regarding prepaid and 529 plans. Most organizations that offer these types of investments have a few constraints as to what school will accept the tuition money. Most have similar offerings and possibilities as our organization, College Illinois. Here is a link to the FAQ section of our website that addresses this topic: http://bit.ly/9vZb7. Thanks!
