Saving for College and Starting Early Can Make a Big Difference

Kids born today could be looking at costs that are three to four times the current price by the time they go to college.1

  • But don’t panic! Less than a third of college-age families are able to cover the entire cost of college on their own.
  • With a combination of savings, income, loans and scholarships, a college education can be attainable.
  • It is never too late to start. Saving at any age gives you the stepping-stones toward you and your child’s goal.
  • It’s proven that those who open a 529 savings plan and save regularly, save more than those who do not.2
