Examine your investment choices
You can choose to create a portfolio where your investments don’t change over time, or one that becomes more conservative as your child gets closer to college age. Your options will vary based on the plan you choose.
Pay attention to fees
Fees can make a significant difference to your bottom line during the years leading up to your child’s college enrollment. When you’re comparing plans, make sure you take into account the various fees a plan will require.
See how funds have performed
Although past performance of an investment fund doesn’t guarantee future results, how a fund has historically performed relative to financial markets is a good way to measure its effectiveness. Consult Savingforcollege.com for more information on fund performance.
