Transferring 529 assets to siblings

Long ago we created 529 plans for our children; including #1. Even then we knew #1 wouldn't likely go to college, but we also knew that when the time came we could switch beneficiaries to #2 and/or #3.

That time has come. #1 is approaching an age where we will assume guardianship. At that time he will become officially disabled and receive state financial support. The assets we can provide will be channeled through a protected trust.

I have the beneficiary reassignment form; I have only to complete it and put it in the mail.

This is not an easy thing to do.
