Title 20, Chapter 3, Section 634 (20-3-634)

(a) The plan shall make savings trust agreements available to the public, under which account contributors or other payors may make contributions on behalf of qualified beneficiaries. Contributions and investment earnings on the contributions may be used for any qualified higher educational expenses of a designated beneficiary. The state shall not guarantee that such contributions, together with the investment return on such contributions, if any, will be adequate to pay for qualified education expenses in full. Savings trust agreements shall be available to both residents of the State of Georgia and nonresidents of the State of Georgia. One or more savings trust accounts may be established for any qualified beneficiary, subject to the limitations of this article.

(b) Each savings trust agreement made pursuant to this article shall include the following terms and provisions:

(1) The maximum and minimum contribution allowed on behalf of each beneficiary for the payment of qualified higher education expenses at eligible institutions as defined in Section 529 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 or other applicable federal law; provided, however, that the total of annual contributions for all accounts for any beneficiary shall not exceed $8,000.00, except that an additional annual sum of $8,000.00 for all accounts for any beneficiary age ten years old or older may be contributed during the first three years in which savings trust agreements are made available by the board to the public. Total savings trust account contributions for all accounts for any beneficiary shall not exceed $120,000.00;

(2) Provisions for assessment and collection of reasonable fees which shall be charged to cover the administration of the account;

(3) Provisions for withdrawals, refunds, rollovers, transfers, and any penalties. An account contributor may roll over all or part of any balance in an account to an account established on behalf of a different beneficiary to the extent allowed by Section 529 of the Internal Revenue Code. Unqualified withdrawals of contributions and earnings shall be subject to a 10 percent penalty on included earnings, and penalties shall be used by the plan to defray expenses; provided, however, that no such penalty shall apply to any withdrawal made following the death of the beneficiary. Contributions and earnings shall not be eligible for qualified withdrawal until three years from the date of establishment of the account;

(4) The name, address, and date of birth of the beneficiary on whose behalf the savings trust account is opened;

(5) Terms and conditions for a substitution of the beneficiary originally named;

(6) Terms and conditions for termination of the account, including any refunds, withdrawals, or transfers, applicable penalties, and the name of the person or persons entitled to terminate the account;

(7) All other rights and obligations of the account contributor and the trust fund; and (8) Any other terms and conditions that the board deems necessary or appropriate, including without limitation those necessary to conform the savings trust account with the requirements of Section 529 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 or other applicable federal law.
