Cramer from MSN Mad Money Talks College 529
529s don't get anywhere near the airtime as hot tech and blue-chip stocks on cable shows like Mad Money with Jim Cramer. But even Cramer can't resist the power of setting up long-term investment for your kid's college future. Cramer suggests opening up a 529 as soon as your child is born and start making contributions right away. He also suggests that grandparents and parents might want to get junior started with some index funds or a few big name stock picks. Don't forget that grandparents can also make donations right to the 529 for each kid. They can even take advantage of increased gifting limits to make larger deposits. It all starts with opening the account. Look up your state's plan and start funding your child's future today.
