Jump Start their Education with a @FloridaPrepaid 529 !! #sponsored

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Bloggin’ Mamas & the Florida Prepaid College Board. All opinions expressed are Babushka's.




HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!

It's summertime and the kids are in casa, enjoying their childhood, pero we all know that goes by so quickly.  Before you've had the chance to dry out their swimsuits and make photo albums, they're off to college. Quee? BB exaggerating? JU SO FONII!!! Bueno, maybe not that rapido, but fast enough that you should be thinking about their education and the future it'll bring them.

Summer is the perfect time to put extra money away for college, especially with a little help from Florida Prepaid. Through June 30, if you open a tax-advantaged Florida 529 Savings Plan, they'll seed your account with $25. Plus, set up automatic monthly contributions, and they'll add another $25 as part of their 529 Summer Jump-Start Promotion.*

There is no age limit, you don't have to be a Florida resident to purchase and the plan can be used nationwide; so it's a flexible option for parents who don't want to commit to a Florida Prepaid College Savings Plan yet OR it can be used in conjunction with a prepaid plan to cover other expenses outside of the tuition and fees.

What is a 529 Savings Plan?

529 savings plans are named after section 529 of the Internal Revenue Code 26 U.S.C. § 529 and are designed to encourage saving for future higher education expenses of a designated beneficiary. Many states offer 529 savings plan options, including Florida Prepaid.

Money from a 529 plan can be used for tuition, fees, books, supplies and equipment required for study at any accredited college, university or vocational school in the United States and at some foreign universities. The money can also be used for room and board, as long as the fund beneficiary is at least a half-time student. Off-campus housing costs are covered up to the allowance for room and board that the college includes in its cost of attendance for federal financial-aid purposes. There is even an expansion that allows it to be used for K-12 educational expenses as well.

May 29 was National 529 day and Florida Prepaid is trying to increase awareness about college savings and the Florida 529 Savings Plan.
