Time is flying by faster than I ever could have imagined. As I watched my nephew Aden graduate from Kindergarten, I couldn’t help but reminisce about my own daughter’s Kindergarten graduation in 2019 (as middle school now looms before us!!!). I’m feeling extra nostalgic looking at these photos side by side, both kids at the same age and stage. I’m a lucky aunt! And, I’m definitely a lucky mom.


Speaking of luck, I am hoping to send some your way because now through June 23rd (2024), my friends at Florida Prepaid College Plans are doing something quite exciting…something that would be an amazing addition to your college savings budget as we all look to a future that’s coming up fast!


Here’s the deal… #modernbocadad and I are currently saving for our daughter’s future with Florida Prepaid. We also opened up a Florida 529 Savings Plan for our daughter’s college education around the same time. We fund it each month and I know that this savings will come in extremely handy down the road for books and other educational costs.


If you join us and open up a 529 Savings Plan for your own kids, there are some awesome perks being offered this year! Read on to find out more…

More reasons to invest in a Florida 529 Savings Plan

Funds in a Florida 529 Savings Plan can be used for any qualified higher educational expense, including tuition, room & board, textbooks, vocational and graduate schools and much more– even qualified K-12 expenses count! This gives you extreme flexibility to use your savings as you see fit, for whatever your child may need. And should those needs change during his/her college years, individuals are free to adjust as well. You can also use it in-state or nationwide, but must be a Florida resident to open an account.


Florida 529 Savings Plans and Prepaid Plans also work really well TOGETHER! While your Prepaid Plan covers tuition and most fees, your 529 Savings Plan can cover things like housing, books as well as those extra costs, like lab fees and technology equipment.


It also allows your investment earnings to grow tax-free. That means more dollars saved for your student’s future (or even their retirement fund if you have money left over!). You can find even more details on how the plans differ HERE.
