I’ve been talking about ScholarShare for years now… years!!! And I don’t get tired of doing so either online or offline because I think it’s SO important to plan for the chiclets’ futures. This year, I’m happy to be participating in ScholarShare’s 30-minute webinar with celebrity author and fashion designer, Rosie Pope, and ScholarShare’s very own Garianne Dashiell. By participate I mean hang out in my home with a nice drink while they give me tips on tackling the huge task of paying for college.
I hope you’ll join me at the 30-minute 529 Crib Notes webinar where we’ll learn about:
- What is a 529 plan
- How do they work
- Things to consider when selecting a 529 plan
The webinar will take place at 12 p.m. PT on Thursday, May 18, and cover what is a 529 plan, how 529 college savings plans work, the different investment options, and a live Q&A session. To register for the webinar, visit: https://cc.callinfo.com/r/107s7lp9402hd&eom.
What: 30-minute Webinar with Rosie Pope and ScholarShare
When: Thursday, May 18th
Time: 12 p.m. PT
National 529 day
May 29th is National 529 day (get it… 5/29?) and this is the time where ScholarShare matches the $50 contribution on new enrollee’s accounts! The promotion runs from on May 24-26.
[warning]FACT: At $1.3 trillion dollars, student loan debt is now the second highest consumer debt in the United States, only behind mortgage debt. According to the Federal Reserve, that number was just $589 billion dollars in 2007.[/warning]
The Matching Promotion
To be eligible for the matching promotion, families must open a new ScholarShare account between Wednesday, May 24 and 26, 2017 with a minimum $50 deposit – to be contributed and invested at the time the new account is opened – and sign up for a $25 Automatic Contribution Plan for six months.
The matching deposit of $50 will be made to the eligible ScholarShare account on or before 11:59 p.m. PST on January 30, 2018. There is a limit of one matching deposit per new ScholarShare account opened for each new beneficiary. Visit www.ScholarShare.com/529day for more information and complete terms and conditions.
