College Funds

“Toto, I’ve a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore.” Ah, but yes we are, Dorothy. Well, kinda. Today, we’ll take a look at the next state in line in our quest to peruse every 529 college savings plan in the country.

Kansas, home to the Jayhawks and a lot of flat, open land, offers up three plans to aid those wanting to save for college: the Learning Quest 529 Education Savings Program, the Learning Quest Advisor, and the Schwab 529 College Savings Plan.

Slowly but surely we are making our way across this nation and taking in the sights. Well, not really. What we are taking in, however, is what each state in our country offers up in terms of plans for saving for college – their 529 plans. This time out, we look to Oklahoma (where the wind comes sweeping down the plain).

The Plans and Their Similarities

We here at MomVesting continue our west-to-east overview of all fifty states' 529 plans. We last focused on the West Coast of this great nation, and this week's plan was to look at the entire Southwest. However, Arizona is a fabulous state with some fabulous (and lenghty) 529 perks, so we'll take a detour to look at Arizona on it's own today and continue our journey to the other states in a few weeks. So here's the lowdown on Arizona.

Arizona College Savings Plans

Thinking about saving money for the future these days is a bit like getting your child to eat veggies after they turn two.  Both scenarios can be difficult for parents, despite the fact that both really are in the best interest of all parties involved.  Eventually, though, Junior will eat something of solid nutritional value on his own without your prompting, hair pulling, or begging.  Saving some of your income can also be painless, easy, and certainly beneficial.  In our ongoing series of great accounts for your money, we bring you a bit on College Savings Accounts. 

All of us would like to have a feeling of security and control over our finances. So, what’s keeping us from getting there? The idea that you have to make a lot to save a lot is a myth. Whether you make $15,000 or $1.5 million, you can save and invest for your future. Just as with any great journey, sometimes the only thing holding you back is getting started. And my guess is you're already investing more than you think!
