Ascensus College Savings, a national administrator of 529 plans, has launched www.HowToSaveForCollege.com, a website devoted to educating families on the importance of saving for college and the potential benefits of saving through a 529 plan account.
According to Ascensus, the site “empowers consumers to save for higher education expenses, providing easy to understand explanations of college costs and reinforcing the benefits of the 529 college savings vehicle.”
Further, Ascensus hopes that HowToSaveForCollege.com will “help to make college savings information more accessible, and will make it easier for the average saver to find consumer-oriented resources in one place.” The site outlines what potential savers can expect of the investment process and highlights best practices and essential tools for success, including a college savings estimate calculator, a list of available 529 plans, and clarification on the most common misconceptions.
“Saving for college is possible for all families, and HowToSaveForCollege.com underscores that belief with useful, understandable, and actionable information,” adds Jeff Howkins, president of Ascensus College Savings.
