How I Prepared for my Kids Future

Thank you, Virginia529, for sponsoring this post. As always, all thoughts and opinions are truly my own.

When I was younger, I always had a drive to be an entrepreneur! Seriously! In the third grade, I would make paper dolls and paper jewelry, and sell them to my classmates! I even figured out how to make an order sheet to keep track of my inventory and expanded my business to paper shoes!

Those paper shoes didn’t last very long…once my customers wore them outside, they got destroyed and so did my business! Lol! I didn’t let that get me down, though. I just moved along to the next brilliant idea, which was comic books!

As a mom, I see the same drive in my kids! My oldest son has taken a huge interest in helping me cook in the kitchen and has often said that he wants to be a chef! My youngest son likes to put on his play lab coat and pretend that he’s a doctor. It’s the cutest thing!

I love their creativity and as their mom, I will always encourage it. I want them to know that anything is possible, and they can grow up to be anything they want to be. That’s why I’m starting early and preparing for their future with Invest529.

So, What is Invest529…???

Invest529 is a flexible, affordable tax-advantaged program that helps a person invest in themselves or their loved ones by saving for higher education and even job trainingWhat this means is the earnings in the account grow free from state and federal taxes. You can open an account with a minimum of $25 and save at your own pace. There’s no online application fee, no annual maintenance fee and there’s not a withdrawal fee for qualified higher education expenses, either. It’s also the top-rated 529 savings program in the country.

The first time I heard about Invest529 was when my older sister was telling me about this amazing savings program for her twins. She talked about the many benefits and how she felt confident knowing that she was taking steps to prepare for her kids’ future. Ever since that moment, I knew that I needed to do the same for my kids because our only savings program included a homemade piggy bank made by their grandpa!

Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE their piggy bank and they enjoy filling it up in hopes to buy a yellow sports car one day ?, but I wanted a solid savings plan, such as Invest529. And it’s not just for college! Invest529 is administered by Virginia529, the nation’s largest 529 plan. But this is a national program open to all families. Invest529 accounts can be used for many qualified higher education expenses for eligible four-year colleges, two-year colleges, graduate schools, trade schools and training programs. Invest529 can also be used to fund qualified higher education expenses beyond tuition, including certain room and board costs, computers and technology expenses as well as fees, books, supplies and other equipment.

And Guess What…???

Invest529 is administered by Virginia529, the largest 529 plan in the country, but Invest529 is available to families nationwide! Virginia529 is sponsoring a sweepstakes of a $529 contribution to a new or existing Invest529 account! The Sweepstakes ends October 14, 2019.
