Saving for College

Whether children want to grow up to be farmers, firefighters, nurses or doctors, as parents and grandparents we want to support them and their dreams.
 
Dedham Savings and our SPF* Financial Representatives, Tom Benson or Bob Breslin can help you help your children and grandchildren by:

  • Discussing the different plans available and uncovering what’s best for your family
               - 529 Plans**
  
               - Coverdell Education Savings Accounts

               - UGMA & UTMA Custodial Accounts for Minors

  • Answering frequently asked questions by grandparents
               - Will Medicaid count my grandchild’s 529 plans as a part of my assets?
  
               - Can I access the money in the event of an emergency?
  
               - Can a 529 plan affect my grandchild’s chance of receiving financial aid?
