College Planning

Saving for College

Whether the kids want to grow up to be farmers, firefighters, or forensic anthropologists, as parents and grandparents we want to support them and their dreams, as best we can. 

At NEFCU Financial Group, available through CUSO Financial Services L.P., our advisors can help you, your children and grandchildren:

  • Understand the differences between available savings plan choices, to uncover what’s best for your family: 
    • 529 Plans
    • Coverdell Education Savings Accounts
    • UGMA & UTMA Custodial Accounts for Minors
  • Answer questions asked by Grandparents 
    • Will Medicaid count my Grandchild’s 529 plan as a part of my assets?
    • Can I access the money in the event of an emergency?
    • Can a 529 plan affect my grandchild’s chance of receiving Financial Aid?

Will you be able to afford the cost of higher education? Contact Jonathan or Scott today.
