Today I’m thrilled to have Washington State’s Guaranteed Education Tuition Program (or GET) joining our sponsorship team. Both our boys have GET accounts, and if you’ve been thinking about saving for your kiddos’ college, it’s a program I encourage you to check out.
With all that you have to focus on today, looking ahead can be difficult. But it’s important-especially when it comes to planning for your children’s education.
What you do today can have a profound impact on the opportunities they have when they grow up. Every little bit you put away today can substantially reduce the burden of paying for future college expenses.
Fortunately, local families have a simple way to maximize their savings. Washington’s Guaranteed Education Tuition Program (GET) is celebrating 15 years of helping families save for college tuition. GET has already helped 29,000 students attend college in all fifty states and 14 foreign countries!
A GET account is safe and secure, with a guarantee specified in state law. GET is Washington’s 529 prepaid tuition plan that allows you to pay a set price today with the guarantee that your account will increase to match rising tuition in the future. As a 529 plan, all earnings and withdrawals from a GET account are tax-exempt when used for qualified higher education expenses. You can use it to attend colleges, universities, and technical schools anywhere in the country.
When it comes to saving for college, it’s important to start early, save what you can and remember that you’re not alone. Family and friends can conveniently contribute to your child’s GET account in any amount. Save a little, get a lot. It all adds up over time. Enroll by May 31 at get.wa.gov
