Education Savings Plans
When you want to provide your child with the best start in life, guiding them from infancy and entering adulthood, that may include wanting to provide for, or supplement, your child’s college tuition.
If this is something you want to provide for your children, your EWM advisor will help you build that goal into your custom financial plan. He or she will also inform you about creative ways you can save to reduce your tax liability.
Making a plan with your advisor for funding tuition and discussing matters like anticipated costs, potential fund penalties, and tax implications will help you have a clearer picture of what you’ll be able to have ready when your child is preparing to send out those college applications!
Your advisor will take the time to talk with you about your goals and concerns about funding for college. From this conversation, your advisor will help you select the saving or financing programs that make sense and create an education investing plan with you
