Florida Prepaid: Open Enrollment is NOW!

Florida Prepaid Open EnrollmentAs a toddler, my daughter Tenley fell in love with all things Disney and that love only became stronger as she grew up.

By February 29, 2016, her life will have changed drastically from her current classes-and-work routine in Valdosta. She will be a month and a half into fulfilling her dream of being a part of the Magic Kingdom from the inside (as part of the Disney College Program), and I am so excited for her.

By February 29, 2016, YOU can dramatically change the course of a child’s life.

If you have not done so already, you can take advantage of the affordable, versatile plans available from the Florida Prepaid Program to ensure your child or children have the opportunity to go to college. (A student with a bachelor’s degree can earn $24,000 more per year than a student with only a high school diploma.)

You can be their visionary.

At 18 months, my daughter Tenley had the security of a favorite stuffed animal. At 17 years, she was poised to enroll as a freshman at Valdosta State University, with her tuition already taken care of through the Florida Prepaid College Plan.

My parents bought the Florida Prepaid College Plan for Tenley with a lump sum payment of around $7,000 when she was an infant. That investment will result in approximately $32,000 worth of college education. The ultimate security.  

A Grandparent’s Gift

When I asked him about his choice to purchase Florida Prepaid College Plans for my children when they were infants, my dad said, “I am not a financial genius; however, I was fortunate enough to have the money to invest in our grandchildren’s future.”

Maybe it isn’t genius level to make such a stellar and long-lasting investment, but it is certainly smart if you ask me!

More About Florida Prepaid

The Florida Prepaid College Plan kicked off Open Enrollment on October 15. The Open Enrollment period closes on February 28, 2015. There are two incredible new changes this year:

  • Prices are at their lowest point since 2007 (as much as 50% lower)!
  • There is a NEW 1-Year Florida University Plan with a monthly payment of $43.30 for newborns.

In addition, the $50 application fee for newly opened plans will be waived through December 31, 2014!

Although my parents chose the lump sum option and started when Tenley and Wayne were infants, there are a variety of payment plans for children of all ages. (And payments don’t begin until April 2015.)

I am a Blogger Believer because a Florida Prepaid College Plan has been one of the primary factors in securing my children’s future.
