Did you miss our September webinar with Fifth Third to celebrate College Savings Month? Well we have good news for you. We are again teaming up to offer a free webinar, “College Savings 101.”

Since 2005, Ohio’s 529 Plan, CollegeAdvantage, and Fifth Third Bank have partnered to help families save for their children’s future higher education. With the 529 Certificate of Deposits (CDs) and 529 specialized savings accounts offered through Fifth Third, more conservative investors and families whose children will start college soon can enjoy both the security of these FDIC-insured options and the tax advantages of saving in Ohio’s 529 Plan.

Join us at 1 p.m. EST on Thursday, Nov. 3, 2022, for “College Savings 101” a free webinar on how to save for higher education. The webinar will shed light on such topics as:

  • How to grow your savings tax-free;
  • Which schools and programs accept 529 funds;
  • Impact on scholarships and other forms of aid; and
  • How 529 plans compare to other college savings options.

Webinar participants will have an opportunity to ask questions of Tim Gorrell, the executive director of Ohio Tuition Trust Authority, the state agency that manages Ohio’s 529 Plan, CollegeAdvantage, and Daniel Beck, Retail Product Management for Fifth Third Bank. Together Tim and Dan will provide the latest information on 529 plans and answer any and all questions regarding saving in Ohio’s 529 Plan and preparing for higher education.

The webinar is one part of our efforts to increase public awareness of 529 plans as a tax-free investment program to help make saving for higher education easier for families in Ohio and nationwide.
