Save extra cash for education at CollegeInvest 529 workshops
One factor can make children seven times more likely to attend college. That factor: Having a college savings account in their name. Upcoming workshops can show you how to start one.
Employee Services will host workshops in collaboration with CollegeInvest, a nonprofit agency within the Colorado Department of Higher Education dedicated to decreasing student loan debt and giving families more opportunity to send their children to college. These talks give CU faculty and staff the opportunity to meet with professionals and discover the benefits of opening an account. Plus, CollegeInvest will contribute $25 to new accounts opened by workshop attendees. And lunch is provided.
These tax-advantaged college savings options let you contribute to a savings plan and watch it grow – whether it’s for a child, grandchild or yourself. Accounts are free to open with no annual fees and the freedom to deposit money as you see fit. You can even set up a direct deposit deduction, automatically setting aside a fixed amount every time you are paid.
Funds from a 529 savings account can be used for qualified educational expenses including tuition, laptops, room and board. The beneficiary can withdraw funds for any institution that accepts federal aid including public universities, community colleges and trade schools.
