Starting to save for college as early as possible can make a huge difference in funding future education expenses. When you start saving for your child’s education early, the interest earnings on your investments can really add up over time. Paying for college with a savings plan means your child will need less financial aid and student loans to attend college. Every dollar saved now is a dollar you won’t have to borrow and pay interest on later.

529 Plans


These college savings plans are designed to help families save for their children’s future college costs. Each state has a 529 college savings plan operated by the state.
