follow up question on account to pay for expenses. how would handle an expense that is larger than $2000. can you link your own account for a qualified expense if it is larger? The account I have linked is my son's account to transfer funds in but it doesn't feel like it would be a good idea to transfer larger than $2000 back to his account for a large expense.
