I've got the money set aside for both those in cash. I hate to see it earning nothing.
Cash? WHy don't you have this money in 529 plans
There are many investment options, but it's all tax-free growth when used for college. Check out the Virginia self-directed VEST 529 plan with Vanguard options. If you are risk averse, I'm sure there must be some age-based options with lots of fixed income. Cash? That doesn't make any sense to me.
Do not confuse the low-expense Vanguard options with the higher expense advisor options in this Virginia 529 plan.
