Saving for your child's college - we look at some of the options available, including the 529 plan

The current national average cost of attending a four-year public college is more than $28,000 per year; for a four-year private college that yearly price tag is now over $59,000. And those costs will continue to rise. 

There are many ways to help pay for college, including grants, scholarships, work-study and loans, but parents should consider saving for their kid's? future college costs early on. Here to discuss 529 plans and other methods to save for college are David Nienaber from the investment firm of Foster and Motley; and local financial advisor Chris DeSimio.
