Luke Minor is the Director of WA529, Washington State’s College Savings plans. The 2 programs – GET and the Dream Ahead college investment plan are amazing options for families planning ahead for future education. These funds can be used anywhere in the country, at most educational institutions, including technical/trade schools, along with covering costs for special instruments, and even paying off student loans in some cases. It’s important to plan and share this with the student/s and family and friends who can all partner in supporting a young person into a great future. Best to start early and young, but it’s just important to get started. Saving just $5/day = $18,000 in 10 years.
