Patricia Roberts Releases Route 529: A Parent’s Guide to Saving for College and Career Training with 529 Plans

While Patricia Roberts has helped tens of thousands of families prepare for the cost of higher education through her work with 529 college savings plans over the past 20 years, she is determined to help even more. That’s why, with a bit of extra time on her hands during the period of social distancing, she wrote Route 529: A Parent’s Guide to Saving for College and Career Training with 529 Plans.

With a wealth of valuable information and a touch of inspiration by incorporating aspects of her own journey to get her son through college debt-free and the journeys of others who have used 529 plans, Patricia has created an easy-to-understand, informative and reassuring guide. She not only explains exactly how to use these accounts, she busts the most common myths about them and provides useful strategies for making the most of available time leading up to higher learning. She explains why it is never too early or too late to start saving and investing and how engaging friends, extended family (and even employers) in the process can make a meaningful difference.

The book is available in both paperback and Kindle versions on Amazon and during its first two weeks on the market, has ranked as the #1 New Release ratings in 8 categories relating to parenting, tax, budgeting and money management, crowdfunding and education. For presentation requests and bulk copy orders, contact Patricia via Linkedin or www.route529.com.
