One of the most important things we can do for our children is to pave the way for higher education. That's why I'm so pleased to introduce a smarter way to save for education. It's the Future Scholar 529 College Savings Plan.
The Future Scholar Savings Plan is sponsored by the state of South Carolina, and if offers several ways to jump-start your college savings. With Future Scholar, you and your family can enjoy more federal and state tax benefits, including the full amount up to the maximum account balance limit deductible from your South Carolina income taxes.
Plus you'll have the satisfaction of knowing that you're investing — in one of the smartest ways possible — for your family's future. If you're looking for a way to bridge the gap between what you have now and what you'll need for college, I encourage you to learn more about all the ways Future Scholar can help.
