529 Savings Plans
Tue, August 20, 2019 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT

An important part of the college planning process, 529 savings plans offer flexible, tax-advantaged accounts to students and families saving for education expenses.  These plans have continued to grow in popularity as students and families start the saving process earlier.  This webinar will provide an overview of 529 savings plans, highlighting new data and trends across the industry.  Join Julie Shields-Rutyna, Director of College Planning at MEFA, as she leads us through this discussion.
