Pittsford, New York (PRWEB) July 24, 2012
Parents starting on the path to saving for college can receive some extra assistance from Savingforcollege.com in researching 529 plans. The leading independent resource and authority on 529 plans now provides free "529 Selection Checklists" on its website that allow visitors to view significant features of many of the direct-sold 529 plans and rate the relevancy of those features to their own personal preferences and circumstances.
The checklists include features that many investors find important. As a result, not only do they help to clarify what parents should be looking for in a 529 plan, but also help cut through what can be an overwhelming amount of information in order to reach an educated decision.
"When we rate 529 plans under our 5-Cap Rating system we assign weights to various factors, but we realize that some investors see things differently," says Joe Hurley, founder of Savingforcollege.com. "These checklists help point out factors that may or may not be important to you when choosing a 529 plan."
The 529 Selection Checklists are offered as part of Savingforcollege.com's "Enroll Now" program, which provides visitors with easy acces to program materials and enrollment information for participating direct-sold 529 plans.
