If you’re resolving to work on your finances this year (and who isn’t?) I hope you’ll take some time to check out the The Guaranteed Education Tuition Program, or GET, Washington State’s 529 prepaid college tuition program.
Put simply, GET allows you to pay for all or part or your child’s future tuition at today’s prices.
Why is that a smart idea? Well, tuition at Washington State’s top public universities has gone up an average of 8.6% a year for the last ten years. You can imagine how much more it might be when your little ones are ready to go! The good news? That rate of increase means if you start saving with GET-even a small amount-you’ll be getting a great return on your investment!
Now, I know financial decisions take a lot of thought, and maybe you’ve been putting this off because it seems overwhelming (sometimes grown-up stuff is really a hassle, isn’t it??). Honestly, though, the folks at GET have made it really easy to get the information you need and enroll. It’s genuinely a painless process, and you will feel so good making 2015 the year you started planning for your little one’s future. Don’t forget, the program has an A rating, and your student can use GET credits at virtually any public or private college or university or technical school.
You can get much more information at the GET website, including a breakdown of the available plans, answers to frequently asked questions, and everything you need to know to enroll. You can also contact the folks at GET, and they’ll be glad to answer any of your questions directly or even come speak to your group!
Here’s to making plans and keeping resolutions! You’ll be glad you did!
