Today, the Alliance highlighted 10 of the best available investor education materials on "529" savings vehicles and other approaches to planning ahead to meet college expenses.

The collection of top resources - "Saving for College: 529s and More" – is available on the Web at http://www.investoreducation.org/529sandmore.cfm. AIE is an 18-member organization of leading financial-related trade associations and governmental organizations.

With the right information and guidance, getting an education doesn't have to break the bank. Our goal in providing this information is to make sure that families can start planning ahead for the richest possible futures for their children."
