⭐ 529 College Savings Plan: Simply the Smart Way to Save for College (Boston Public Library) – VIRTUAL
December 10, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Thinking about saving for your child’s college tuition can be a daunting and overwhelming experience. This seminar will help attendees understand the challenges that students have today and in the future when it comes to paying for college, as well as rethinking several misperceptions that many people have about college planning.
Additionally, attendees will learn about the different options available to fund a college education, while focusing on the features and benefits of one option in particular, the 529 Plan, an education savings vehicle that is a no-brainer despite the fact that research suggests that only 29% of Americans have even heard of it.
Attendees will also gain a familiarity with how to make sense of the college savings process and will leave the seminar with a feeling of comfort around how to make more informed—and more confident—decisions about their college planning and saving process. Find out why our presenter, Bradley Baskir, believes the 529 plan is the single most under-utilized, but advantageous investment vehicle that exists.
Register here. A link to this Zoom webinar will be sent the afternoon of the event.
