Fact or Fiction?
If you’re still on the fence about whether Florida Prepaid is right for you, perhaps I can help by dispelling some common myths.
MYTH #1: If my student decides to go to an out-of-state university, we will lose our Florida Prepaid investment.
TRUTH: This is one of the biggest misconceptions about prepaid college plans. The truth is that Florida Prepaid isn’t restricted to Florida schools; the amount covered by your Prepaid Plan can be used at schools nationwide.
MYTH #2: If I move out of Florida, I will forfeit our Florida Prepaid savings plan.
TRUTH: I can tell you from firsthand experience that this isn’t the case at all. If you move out of Florida after purchasing a Prepaid Plan, your child will still be billed at in-state tuition rates when using their plan at a Florida college or state university.
MYTH #3: If my child doesn’t go to college, I’ll lose all of my prepaid plan savings.
TRUTH: Actually, if your child doesn’t go to college, you can get your Florida Prepaid savings back. You also have the option of changing the beneficiary of the Prepaid Plan.
