Saving and planning for your child’s college education is a topic that we tend to put off as we’re busy raising our kids. It’s easy to get caught up in ball games, dance recitals and what’s on the spelling test for next week and not put aside time for a savings plan for how you will ensure your child’s financially prepared for a college tuition. As a friend I’m asking you to start to really look at the options available now for your child on how to invest for their college education. Prices of tuition continue to increase and it’s important that we plan for it for our children.
Here’s one program to consider for Florida residents.
This post is sponsored by the Florida Prepaid College Board, through my role as a Believer Blogger. All thoughts are my own. #StartingisBelieving
OPEN ENROLLMENT for Florida PrePaid is officially OPEN! A few weeks ago I shared my excited for the beginning of Florida PrePaid Open Enrollment and how my son was able to successfully use this program as a recent college graduation debt free.
Now it’s your turn to my Florida Friends…. It’s time to consider a Florida Prepaid Plan – I am so excited that Prepaid Plans are remaining affordable for Florida families. Also, next year is a leap year meaning families will have an extra day to purchase Prepaid Plans! Open Enrollment will end Feb. 29, 2016
Starting is Believing
It’s not time for our family to make the choice to starting investing in my 4 year old’s college savings. As scary as it seems I know it’s not that far away. It’s a commitment as a family we will make so that her chances of success increase as an adult with her profession of choice. I wonder what she’ll grow up to want to be? My 9 year old has already expressed an interest as a vet or a pediatrician. My son decided to focus on technology with his degree and was able to earn his Bachelors in Computer Engineering.
As my son begins his new job I must admit that I’m very excited that he’s able to focus on his new dream for his life and doesn’t have to feel weighted down by hit college loans acquired while earning his degree. If you start at a early age the cost can be manageable as a family.
