Traditional four-year colleges are great places but may not be right for your child when the time comes. College Kids funds can be used toward other kinds of post-secondary education including community colleges, vocational and technical training programs.
Deposits made by individuals (participants, family members, etc.) are considered “Non-Program Funds” and may be accessed by the participant when the beneficiary is 21 years old. At that time, if students have Non-Program funds in their accounts and are unable to be reached in order to gain responsibility for the funds, remaining balances will be turned over to Missouri’s Unclaimed Property Division. Unused Program funds (such as the initial $50 deposit and any Bonuses & Rewards earned) will be returned to the Program for other students to access.
