The Galleon Custodial Account gives you complete control over the assets and provides more investment options that any other type of education savings account.

Overview

The Uniform Gift to Minors Act (UGMA) and the Uniform Transfer to Minors Act (UTMA) make it simple to transfer property to a minor without a formal trust and without the restrictions applicable to the guardianship of a minor’s property.

With these types of custodial accounts, a minor can own cash or securities that are controlled by a custodian until he or she meets the age of majority in the state the account was set up. All deposits into these accounts are irrevocable gifts to the minor recipient.

Details

Assets in the account become an irrevocable gift to the minor under the Uniform Gift to Minors Act or the Uniform Transfer to Minors Act (UGMA/UTMA). Custodial accounts are not tax-deferred. Taxation of earnings will be dependent on the minor’s tax rate.

Benefits

  • A retirement savings plan that allows an individual to contribute earnings until they are withdrawn.
  • Contributions are subject to annual limits depending on the age of the account owner and may or may not be deductible depending on the individual’s circumstances.
  • Earnings accumulate tax deferred until distributed to you at which time the earnings are subject to tax upon withdrawal.
  • A spouse may contribute to a separate account subject to the same limits.
  • Withdrawals made prior to age 59½ are subject to a 10% penalty unless certain special circumstances apply.
  • Distributions must begin by the account owner’s required beginning date (RBD), which is April 1 following the year that the account owner reaches age 70½.
  • Once the account owner reaches age 70½, he or she must withdraw at least a minimum amount called an annual Required Minimum Distribution (RMD).
  • If an account owner fails to withdraw the full amount of the RMD annually, or fails to withdraw the RMD, there is a 50% tax penalty that may be imposed by the IRS on the amount not withdrawn.
