We always reflect on the past year when January 1 hits, and now that I am a parent I realize just how important each day is. When I was younger, I always knew that I would attend college. I never doubted myself, and I was sure that I would find whatever funds necessary to go. I had no idea that I would be riddled with debt just to attain two degrees. While I am grateful for my education (and I did my husband at graduate school!), I wish that there were better options. Now that I know better, I’ve invested in a Florida Prepaid College plan for my son. The gift of financial security is perhaps one of the best educational goals I could set for my son.
To help you set your own educational goals for your family, I created a simple checklist that you can review daily to stay on track. While your goals may be different based on the age of your children, I think that we can all agree that every day we need read, do homework, and create a plan in our planner. Without a plan, we can be lost no matter what our age is.
If you are ready to plan for the future, I encourage you to look into the various Florida Prepaid Plans to find one that is best for you. Open enrollment is available through February 28th, and you can save now if you use code BLOG1617! Receive 50% off your application fee which helps you save $25.
I’m most interested in the 1-Year Florida University Plan. It is a more affordable way to save for State University credit hours. The 1-Year Florida University Planlets you purchase one year, or 30 credit hours, at a time according to your budget and timeline, without feeling the pressure of having to buy all four years at once! The plan also allows multiple purchasers to buy a plan for the same child. So now you can team up with other family members to help pay for your child’s higher education. For example, let Grandma and Grandpa buy one year and you purchase another. A child can have up to four 1-Year Florida University Plans. Easy, right?!
Every cent of the value of this plan can be applied at any university or college nationwide and is guaranteed by the state of Florida. You cannot lose the money you put in. How’s that for financial security?
Are you setting educational goals for the new year? How can you contribute to your child’s future?
