A custodial account under the Uniform Transfers to Minors Act (UTMA) allows you to save for your child or grandchild’s future needs, including (but not limited to) higher education expenses. Although custodial accounts are not tax-advantaged accounts, earnings and withdrawals may be subject to the child’s tax rate rather than the account holder’s.
Pricing & Fees
For pricing and fee information, please contact PNC Investments or see the PNC Investments Overview of Products and Services.
Gift Tax Exclusion
Contributions to custodial accounts under UTMA qualify for the annual federal gift tax exclusion, up to $15,000 for 2021.
Though there are a few exceptions, in most cases the beneficiary has no right to the assets in the account until he or she reaches age 18 (or 21, in some states).
