About 20% of adults in the U.S. now fall into what is being called the "new rich" category and there are several ways financial advisers can help them manage their new-found wealth, says David Edwards, president of Heron Financial Group/Wealth Advisors.

If they have children, the new rich should start making monthly contributions to 529 college savings plans, he says.
