Custodial account help
Custodial accounts may offer certain tax benefits for gifts to minors. Once money has been invested into a custodial account, the money becomes the irrevocable property of the minor. However, the custodian (an adult named in the application) maintains control of the account until the minor reaches the age at which custodianship ends for the state in which it was established.

A child under age 18 is named as the beneficiary on the account, with a parent or legal guardian named as the responsible individual. Penalties may apply if proceeds are used for purposes other than education.
