The Open Enrollment period for Florida Prepaid is ending soon! The last day to enroll is 4/30/19, so that gives you just 15 more days to purchase a prepaid college savings plan. If you’re still on the fence about enrolling, I’ve rounded up some resources to help you make a decision.
Florida Prepaid Resources
Florida Prepaid FAQ’s: Here are answers to some of the most commonly asked questions, including what a Florida Prepaid plan covers, where and when it can be used, and how it works with scholarship programs like Bright Futures.
Plans & Pricing Calculator: Enter your child’s birthdate to see an estimate of your monthly payment (based on your child’s age and the type of plan).
Avoiding Student Loan Debt: The average college graduate starts their career with a staggering amount of student loan debt. Find out how a Florida Prepaid College Plan can help your family avoid this pitfall. (Note: I originally published the blog post about student loan debt in 2017, so the stats & plan prices mentioned in it may have changed. Please see www.myfloridaprepaid.com for the most up-to-date info.) Also, check out the College Cost Forecaster, a cool little tool that will give you an idea of how much your child’s college education will cost.
Five Ways Grandparents Can Help Florida Kids Pay for College: Perhaps your fortunate enough to have family members who are willing and able to help cover college expenses. Here are 5 specific and actionable ways that they can help.
LEGOLAND® Florida Discount
And as a bonus: LEGOLAND® Florida and Florida Prepaid have come together to encourage Florida families to support their children’s imagination, while saving for their college education. Any family who enrolls in a prepaid plan during this Open Enrollment season will receive a 50% discount on LEGOLAND® Florida tickets for their family! (The offer is for 3 tickets only, including beneficiary. Tickets must be purchased by October 27, 2019.)
You don’t have to do anything extra to get this benefit. If you enroll in a Prepaid plan, you can expect an email with more information on how to access your tickets after Open Enrollment ends. What a great way to “build” on your child’s future! (Sorry, couldn’t resist the corny joke.)
Enrollment Fee Promo Code
Finally, if you do decide to purchase a plan, make sure you use my promo code RUNSIT19 to save $30 on your enrollment fee (regular price is $50). I’ll continue to post reminders on my social media accounts until Open Enrollment wraps up on 4/30/19. As always, free to ask any questions in the comments (or send me an email), and I’ll do my best to answer or direct you to the right place for more info. Your best bet for the most accurate info is to call 1-800-552-4723 or visit myfloridaprepaid.com.
