Financial Focus Continued from pg. 1D known as an UGMA or UTMA, which offers some tax benefits, no contribu- tion limits, and may have an impact on financial aid. You might also consider investing in a zero-coupon bond that matures just when your child is ready for college. Unlike other bonds, you won't receive regular interest payments with a zero-coupon bond, but you purchase it at a deep discount, so you might find the affordability factor to be worth considering. (Be aware, though, that even though you don't actually receive the interest pay- ments annually, you'll still be liable for the taxes on them, so before purchasing a zero coupon bond, con- suit with your tax advisor). Whichever college-sav- ings vehicles you choose, try to put them to work as early as you can. Before you know it, today's first-graders will be tomorrow's college freshmen.
