I’ve got two kids. Thinking about them going to college is a ways off, but, despite that, we have a 529 savings account set up for both. A 529 is a college/higher learning savings account.
If the thought of saving for your kid’s education has you feeling anxious, Ohio 529 Plan (you don’t need to live in Ohio to take advantage of this) has an upcoming FREE webinar where you can learn all about how 529 plans work. You can learn more here.
