www.producersweb.com The August Spotlight on Estate Planning discusses how the Tuition Plan Consortium has chosen a subsidiary of OppenheimerFunds to manage its $160 million Private College 529 Plan; and the Fed’s efforts to offer guidance to financial firms on how to avoid reverse compliance and reputation risks related to reverse mortgages.
A recent report from the College Savings Plans Network (CSPN) found that despite the financial downturn of 2009, saving for college is still a priority for American families today. CSPN’s bianual “529 Report” found that total investments in 529 plans reached a record high of $157.4 billion in 2010. The report is based on data aggregated exclusively by CSPN from the country’s 104 savings and prepaid tuition programs and examines 529 plan assets, contributions and distributions from Jan. 1, 2010 to Dec. 31, 2010. Joan Marshall, Chair of CSPN, reviews the findings. For more information, visit www.collegesavings.org.
