Ohio 529 & Fifth Third To Host Free College Savings Webinar Sept. 8

Since 2005, Ohio’s 529 Plan, CollegeAdvantage, and Fifth Third Bank have partnered to help families save for their children’s future higher education. With the 529 Certificate of Deposits (CDs) and 529 specialized savings accounts offered through Fifth Third, more conservative investors and families whose children will start college soon can enjoy both the security of these FDIC-insured options and the tax advantages of saving in Ohio’s 529 Plan.

Join us at 1 p.m. EST on Thursday, Sept. 8, 2022, for “Saving for College," a free webinar on how to save for higher education. The webinar will shed light on such topics as:

  • How to grow your savings tax-free;
  • Which schools and programs accept 529 funds;
  • Impact on scholarships and other forms of aid; and
  • How 529 plans compare to other college savings options.

Webinar participants will have an opportunity to ask questions of Tim Gorrell, the executive director of Ohio Tuition Trust Authority, the state agency that manages Ohio’s 529 Plan, CollegeAdvantage, and Daniel Beck, Retail Product Management for Fifth Third Bank. Together Tim and Dan will provide the latest information on 529 plans and answer any and all questions regarding saving in Ohio’s 529 Plan and preparing for higher education.

The webinar is one part of our efforts for the national celebration of September as College Savings Month. College Savings Month was created to raise awareness regarding the importance of saving for higher education and how investing in a 529 college savings plan can help make saving easier.
