if they need a computer for high school, or they are in summer camps, you can use the custodial money to pay for that.
My understanding is:
1. 529 money cannot be spent until the student is in college
2. even if the student is in college, 529 money cannot be spent on a computer unless the college requires that students have their own computers
Maybe I misunderstood what is meant by "custodial money".
