Give the Gift of Financial Security this Christmas!

These three babies are going places with Florida Prepaid College.
Time to give gifts and to share our love with one another. There is, no better way in my opinion, than to share the gift of education with the little ones in your life. I have shared before, and I will share again why I am passionate about Florida Prepaid College...its those three in the photo above. Those kids, my babies...they are going places, and with Florida prepaid we can afford the places they go a little easier. I can only imagine how hard it would be to have multiple children in college at once, so we are trying to offset that battle and have at least some of it paid by the time my children make the big step and start to attend college. My oldest will be starting college in just seven short years, so we do not have that long to go! We can only afford to purchase one year of university each, at a time, so right now my oldest will have one year paid for, the middle child will have three years paid for, and the princess should have her complete bachelors degree paid in full if we keep on this track! 

 My children receive so much at the holidays that they know if they receive a check, it automatically goes to their savings account. Sometimes they like to argue with us about it, but they know the rules. We educate them that one day they will be incredibly thankful for this gift. However, I was recently made away of an even greater idea! The Florida Prepaid plan! Family members can now buy an entire year of college, or even just 30 credit hours at a time if that suits their budget better! Wouldn't it be an amazing thing if family members went in together (or if your family is a little better off than ours bought the entire thing themselves) and bought your child a year of college to be used at a later date at one of Florida's amazing universities? I honestly cannot think of a greater gift to give a child, OR A PARENT, than a college education, PAID FOR!  I seriously love this idea, and wish that all of those checks we received for our kids have went to Florida Prepaid College. Even though we have the money saved, I feel like our money would have went further because you are locked in at today's rate, and we all know that college prices are going up every single year, and that makes college a major financial burden for many parents and for many college aged adults. I would love if my children can make it through college without accruing massive loans that will haunt them well into working adult-hood! Florida prepaid is making this possible for many families, including ours. 

My favorite plan, though it is not financially possible in our situation, is the 2+2 plan. This gives your kid a great foundation of having the community college background, but then attending the University afterward. Even better, students on this plan are guaranteed admission to a University when they have completed their state college requirements. 

The plan we are currently doing is paying for one year of university, for the next four years. After we pay off our one year, we will begin a second year until my kids have college all paid for. That is the beauty of Florida Prepaid: there are so many options and you can make it work for YOUR family.

  1. I think these are such good plans and a good way for family members to give gifts that will provide in the future.

  2. This is such a great idea. I need to check into this for my grandchildren. Thank you so much for sharing. God Bless
