The Further Consolidated Appropriations Act 2020 includes provisions that 1) allow 529 withdrawals to pay for certain expenses associated with apprenticeship programs registered and certified by the Secretary of Labor under the National Apprenticeship
Act, and 2) to pay principal and interest on certain qualified education loans for the beneficiary of your account or any of the beneficiary’s siblings. The loan repayment provisions apply to repayments up to $10,000 per individual. This $10,000
is a lifetime amount, not an annual limit. Withdrawals for student loan repayment and/or apprenticeships can only be made to the Account Owner or the Beneficiary.
