College: Getting There from Here
Wednesday, June 19th, 8:30 am - 11:00 am

 College: Getting There from Here is a 60-minute presentation that covers questions to consider as you establish your college savings goals.

College prep does not start in High School. It starts when your student is born because it gives you ample time to start saving for college. It also gives you time to help your student strategically plan both academically and socially to be a great candidate for top colleges, scholarships, and financial aid.

This presentation will help you understand just what are the college costs, what financial aid is available, the key questions to ask about financial aid, and other opportunities for funding including Bright Futures Scholarships, Florida Prepaid Programs, and 529 Savings Plans.

Guest Speaker:

Victor Lanten

As an Edward Jones financial advisor, my primary goal is to help individual investors to plan and implement financial strategies designed to accomplish their unique, long-term goals. Put simply, my job is to make it easy and clear for you to establish financial strategies, to help you sleep better at night, and help you live the life you want to live.
Whether you need to plan for retirement, protect and insure what you have built, save for a child’s college education, grow your hard earn savings or strategies to reduce taxes, I can help.
At Edward Jones we truly believe in building strong relationships and developing a lifetime partnership with our clients. I prefer meeting face to face to understand your needs.
