Cash for College
February 2021

Whether you’re a parent, grandparent, or student, it is important to weigh all of your options when thinking about college. You could be saving money to attend yourself or preparing to send a loved one. Either way, it is impossible to ignore how expensive achieving an education can be. However, with the right resources and guidance anyone can build up cash for college. Here’s a tip: Research different college-specific investment accounts to see which ones give you the best tax benefits. Some financial institutions may also have their own college savings accounts that earn higher interest rates or give you an extra bonus for signing up. For more information on what drives college costs, what families typically pay, review scholarship opportunities, discuss available financial aid; and explore college tax-advantaged savings options, view our free on-demand “Paying for College” webinar.
