We attended a Vanguard #NY529event at the fun craft studio NYC where the kiddos enjoyed creating while parents planned.
There’s so much that goes into planning for our children’s future before they’re able to decide what it is that they’re interested in doing as a career. To relieve a bit of stress from the future decisions we have decided to invest not only emotionally and supportive but through financial goal setting.
Having multiples can sometimes mean that there’s a 95% chance your child will hit milestones at the same time and college is one of them.
“Pointer for parents of multiples”
* Did you know that when parents of multiples begin the application process for their children finances are automatically viewed as cut in half which allows for qualification to assistance if needed?
Also did you ever wonder how much debt within USA is in student loans? Over 1 trillion dollars. I’ll say that a perfect way to lower this deficit is by starting a NYs 529 plan.
NYs529 plan is a kind of investment account that can be used towards higher education savings ; usually sponsored by states. Your earnings grow federally as you contribute and the best part is that anyone in the family can contribute to the plan. Contribution limits are generally high, yet there is no minimum to start the plan.
The plan does not have to only be used within the state. The NYs529 Plan can be used at any eligible educational institution that has a federal school code.
KEY POINT: thanks to the representatives
🔑 A key point to take in is that there are no restrictions to opening an account and a beneficiary is able to have many accounts. As well as Being able to use the plan for books, supplies, tools whether attending post secondary trade or vocational schools.
