Course Description

Welcome to the course where you will learn everything you need to know to choose the right tax-free college savings plan for your child and use the power of simplified investing to pay for their education.

At the end of this course, you’ll be able to:

  • Choose the most beneficial 529 College Savings Plan for your child and family situation from all the many available options
  • Understand all the tax benefits
  • See the power of using investing to pay for college
  • Open and use a savings plan
  • Understand the future cost of college
  • Start contributing to achieve your college savings goal
  • Know how to spend the funds and what the money can be spent on
  • Decide what to do with any leftover money

With this course, not only will you reduce or eliminate student loan burden for your kid(s), but it will also save you a bunch of money. The power of investing allows you to use earnings to pay a large portion of college costs, rather than coming directly out of pocket!

I designed this course for parents who want to give their child the opportunity of a debt-free college education but are not sure how to financially accomplish this.

This course is meant for US-taxpayers, as the 529 Plan type of account can only be used by them.
