Ideally, we begin young, at their birth, even before–baby showers are a great event where the host can suggest contributions to a child’s future education. GET, a 529 prepaid college tuition plan is viewed as tops in the country. Already over 51,000 students have used their GET funds in all 50 states, and in 14 foreign countries. Planning ahead has the value of letting your child know that you believe in higher education and they are capable of it. Equally as important they will not incur huge debt for their college tuition.
