USPS offers resources to help employees learn more about college savings options.

Paying college tuition for yourself or a family member can be expensive and overwhelming.

If you’re saving to help a child or loved one attend college, a 529 plan might be a good option.

These plans are operated by states and educational institutions and are designed to help families set aside funds for future college costs.

If you need to take out a loan for college, there are two options: federal or private. Both come with pros and cons, so make sure you do your research.

To learn more, view the “Paying for College” presentation on the Benefits and Wellness webinars page.

The LiteBlue Financial Wellness site has additional tips.
