College Planning 101

COLLEGE PLANNING 101 with Moses Lin & Roy Tirakayos: Saturday, February 4, 2012, 2:00 p.m. Whether a private or public school is in your child's or grandchild's future, education costs are rising. That's why it makes sense to prepare for future education expenses now. It's never too late to start putting your savings to work and taking advantage of a tax-deferred growth opportunity for your most valuable investment, your children. Come to Crowell Library on Saturday, February 4 at 2:00 p.m. to gain a better understanding of college costs and how you can prepare. Savings and investment accounts can be the foundation for your education savings, but a number of strategies such as 529 college savings plans are specifically designed to help you reach your education savings goals with tax incentives. Although loans, scholarships and grants are helpful, relying on them could be out of your control. Having a nice nest egg for education gives a child more options. Learn the benefits of 529 savings plans and how to choose the right one. MOSES LIN is a licensed financial advisor with Edward Jones Investments.
