When our ‘chiquitos’ are born, the world took on an entirely new meaning. Our priorities changed, our view of the world changed and all we want is the best for them- the ‘angelitos’ as many of you refer them in your families. Included in those changing priorities and views is a need to provide a stable future, safe home and great education. As children grow up and hit the tween and teen years, the education priorities and funds needed to support them become even more critical.
Our Los Tweens & Teens team is excited to share important reminder for Florida families about higher education being more accessible than ever.
Florida Prepaid College Plans allow families to lock college tuition pricing and prepay, on a monthly-basis or lump sum basis, the future cost of college tuition, as well as dormitory housing.
Here are 3 myths about “Florida Prepaid College Savings Plans” that will make you want to act now before you must wait to open-enrollment again on October.
Florida Prepaid is restricted to Florida schools. Fact: It isn’t restricted to Florida schools; the amount covered by your Prepaid Plan can be used at schools nationwide.
Florida Prepaid can only be used if my child remains a Florida resident. Fact: If the beneficiary moves out of Florida after purchasing a Prepaid Plan, your child would still be billed at in-state tuition rates when using their plan at a Florida college or state university.
If my child doesn’t go to college, I lose all that money. Fact: If your child doesn’t go to college, you can change the beneficiary of the Prepaid Plan or get your money back.
