One of the most important ways we can help our children achieve success is to clear a path toward higher education. That’s why I’m so pleased to introduce a smarter way to save for college: the Future Scholar 529 College Savings Plan..
The Future Scholar 529 College Savings Plan is sponsored by the State of South Carolina and administered by the South Carolina State Treasurer’s Office. Future Scholar is designed to help you jump-start your college savings while enjoying federal and state tax benefits.
In addition, you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that you’re investing now — in one of the smartest ways possible — for your family’s future. If you’re looking for a way to bridge the gap between your current savings and what you’ll need for college, I encourage you to learn more about all the ways Future Scholar can help.
