California let me set the date for my kids at 25. Since they were infants when I set them up I had no idea how they would turn out. As an older mom, I wanted to make sure my kids could go to college, and grad school, no matter what.

As an aside, my oldest started college two weeks before her 18th birthday, so even her account had to be setup as a UGMA-18 account and then we fixed it to be hers when she came home for a break. These accounts go into a kind of limbo three months after they "age out".

Congrats to your young friend and to you for helping her.
