Saving for college or training with 529 Plans: VSAC Shows You How
September is National College Savings Month—a great time to learn about how to start saving for future college or training, and why it is so important. In the next VSAC Shows You How webinar, simulcast to VSAC's Facebook page on September 28, from 6-7 p.m., VSAC, sponsor of the Vermont 529 plan, will explain what a 529 plan is, and how these programs work to help families save for education, with tax benefits to make saving easier.
Find out the many ways you can use 529 funds, tax benefits and advantages, and a special benefit for Vermont taxpayers—the Vermont income tax credit. VSAC panelists include Marilyn Cargill, vice president of financial aid services, marketing and research, and Richard Westman, VSAC's manager of the VT529 program.
You’ll also learn about VSAC events during College Savings Month in September, and easy ways to start saving or to give a gift of education savings to help the kids in your life reach their future goals. There will be plenty of opportunity to get answers to your questions, too! To register for the Zoom meeting click here, or plan to join us on Facebook. The webinar will be recorded for future viewing.
