Withdrawals & expenses

Only the account owner may make a withdrawal. You can request a withdrawal by mail, by phone, or from the Plan’s website. Withdrawals may be made individually or systematically. You can pay the institution, send it directly to the beneficiary or reimburse yourself. Be sure to keep all receipts to substantiate qualification.

Type of withdrawals:

  • Qualified Withdrawals: These are untaxed and include any withdrawals that will be used to cover Qualified Higher Education Expenses for the student at an Eligible Educational Institution. The student must be enrolled for at least half-time for room and board expenses. Qualified higher education expenses also include tuition expenses of up to $10,000 per year per beneficiary in connection with enrollment and attendance at an elementary or secondary public, private or religious school, student loan repayment up to $10,000 per beneficiary, and expenses for apprenticeships and California Concurrent Enrollment.1
  • Taxable Withdrawals: The earnings portion of this type of withdrawal is subject to federal and state tax but does not include the additional federal 10% tax. Say your child receives a full or partial scholarship or attends a military academy, you can withdraw certain amounts from your 529 account that will not be used for qualified higher education expenses, and those amounts will be subject to tax on the earnings portion of the withdrawal but will not be subject to the additional federal 10% tax.
  • Non-Qualified Withdrawals: The earnings portion of this type of withdrawal will be subject to tax, including the additional 10% federal tax. Examples might include using the money for a car, vacation or home improvement. But even if you urgently need to pay a medical bill and withdraw money from your 529 plan as a last resort—that withdrawal would still be subject to tax, including the additional 10% federal tax.
Footnotes
  1. 1In the event of a refund of amounts paid for qualified higher education expenses from an eligible educational institution, the refund may be redeposited to the 529 plan within 60 days without the amount being subject to tax. The recontributed amount cannot exceed the amount of the refund.

Are you getting ready to withdraw funds for the first time? If so, you’ll find you can make a withdrawal online or by mail. Here’s a few other points to consider. Withdrawals fall into three categories: qualified, taxable and non-qualified. Only qualified withdrawals may be made without federal income tax or penalties.

What you’ll need for an online withdrawal

If you haven’t already set up an account to receive the funds, for either yourself or the beneficiary, you will need to update your account information with the following details:

  • Checking or savings account number
  • Bank routing number
  • Name as it appears on the account
  • Bank’s name

Without an active, up-to-date account, you may only receive the funds through a check. You’ll also need to wait eight days after the receipt of a contribution before you can withdraw the funds from your account.

Here’s some other important things to consider:

  • Change your mailing address, you won’t be able to make a withdrawal for 20 business days
  • Change banking information, you won’t be able to make a withdrawal for 30 days
  • Add a new bank account, you won’t be able to make a withdrawal for 30 days
  • Transfer the account to a new owner, no withdrawals may be made for 30 days

Additional requirements may apply to requests of $100,000 or more.

  2. Once you’ve logged in, you will go directly to the “Statements, Confirms & Tax Forms” page.
  3. You can search by year, beneficiary and document type.

Additional information

If you take a withdrawal from your ScholarShare 529 sometime during the tax season, you will likely receive a 1099Q for any withdrawals made the previous year. This tax document includes the total of all withdrawals you make during a given year and may be taxable depending on the withdrawal type.

When a withdrawal is placed:

Payable to the Account Participant (The Account Owner will be the tax responsible party who will receive the IRS Form 1099-Q).

Payable to the Designated Beneficiary (The Beneficiary will be the tax responsible party who will receive the IRS Form 1099-Q).

Withdrawal to an eligible college or university, or secondary public, private or religious school (The Beneficiary will be the tax responsible party who will receive the IRS Form 1099-Q).

Indirect Rollover (The Account Owner will be the tax responsible party who will receive the IRS Form 1099-Q).

1099Q’s are sent to the responsible parties above dependent on delivery preference by January 31 of the year following that in which the withdrawal was done (e.g. if a withdrawal takes place in 2021, the 1099Q would be generated and be delivered on or before January 31, 2022).

At some point, you may find you want to transfer ownership of your account to another individual or entity eligible to be an Account Owner. You can make this transfer by submitting the appropriate Plan form. This in effect opens a new account for the beneficiary with the new owner. It’s important to note, depending upon who the new owner is in relation to the beneficiary, taking this action can have various tax implications.

What you’ll need

To complete this process, you do not need to change the beneficiary if you transfer account ownership, but you’ll need:

  • Your ScholarShare 529 current account information
  • The new owner’s name, SSN, address and contact information
  • A printed copy of the Transfer Form.
How to do it by mail
