Hello everyone,

Here's my situation: I am currently engaged to a wonderful lady who is currently completing her bachelor's degree. She will graduate in the spring of 2001 after which time (june) we will get married. She would like to begin a Master's program that fall (september 2001).

Some background: We will be living in New York (probably NYC) when we get married, and I currently live there -- although I work in New Jersey.

My research so far: As I see it an Education IRA is out since she is over 18. The NY 529 plan doesn't help because the account has to exist for 3 years before you can withdraw money.

Does anyone have any other suggestions or ideas?!?! All help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance,


PS - Please email replies as well as posting since I don't follow this board closely.
