Practical Perspectives: Key financial issue for you and your family – Soon-to-be retirees still see wisdom in 529 plan
Abstract: In this issue’s “Practical Perspectives,” we meet Frank and Alice, a married couple who are a year or two away from retirement. One of the many goals they’d like to accomplish during their golden years is helping to fund their grandchild’s college education. In the last year or two, they’d read a couple of articles about 529 plans but weren’t sure whether these arrangements were still worthwhile. So they visited their financial advisor to discuss the matter.
