Whenever we visit places where the U.Fund Dreams Tour is touring, I can never get my kid’s out of the Fidelity tent. They love slinging sheep and seeing their pictures on the TV screen (who wouldn’t?)
The kids had all sorts of questions there about trains, the railroad, and how everything worked. As a parent you often wonder what your child will grow up to be. What will interest them? What will they be successful at? What kinds of challenges will be presented to them? We always want the best for our children. And part of that is also wanting to bankroll their full college bill. Did you know 36% of Millennials in Massachusetts are determined not to pass student loan burden onto the next generation? And of those still paying their own loans back 91% intend to reallocate those resources to their kid’s college funds as soon as their debt is paid?* Check out this nifty interactive calculator from Fidelity that tells you how much you should be saving for your own children: College Savings Quick Check Tool It will help you start the process towards building a solid future for your budding engineer (or teacher, or consultant, or banker, or agent, ballet dancer, superhero…………….)
