Jones, who also serves as senior executive vice president and chief administrative officer for the National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD).

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."The new "Saving for College: 529s and More" section of the AIE Web site features the following education savings information:
