Many of you know that I'm currently the proud Mom of three. What you probably didn't know is that I had my very first child and daughter at the very young age of 19. Having a child at such a young age meant I may not have been as prepared as I should have when it came to focusing on her future education. Thanks to Florida Prepaid College Guarantee that's not something I'll ever have to worry about again!
The Florida Prepaid College Plan allows families just like yours the ability to put higher education within reach by giving you the opportunity to start saving early for your child's college tuition. When your child is ready for college, the plan pays the tuition, tuition differential fee, and other specified fees covered under the plan.
One myth that I've always heard that I'd like to dispel today is that if your child decides not to attend college you will lose your investment. The truth of the matter is if your child decides not to attend college or receives a college scholarship, you can change the beneficiary of the Prepaid Plan or get your money back. It's as simple as that! Florida Prepaid also isn’t restricted to Florida schools; the amount covered by your Prepaid Plan can be used at schools nationwide as well. Let' take a look at some of the additional Prepaid College Plan Benefits.
- Guaranteed – Every Prepaid Plan is guaranteed by the State of Florida, so you will never lose your investment.
- Nationwide – Even if your child attends an out-of-state or private college, the plan will pay the same amount as it would pay at a public college or university in Florida.
- Scholarships – If your child receives a scholarship, you can get a refund for the same amount as the plan would pay a public college or university in Florida.
- 10 Years – Your child has up to 10 years after his or her year of projected enrollment to use the plan.
