September is College Savings Month

Buying school supplies and packing lunches? Must be back to school time!

While K-12 school days are a big focus right now, college will be here before you know it.

That's why September's a great month to open an NC 529 college savings account -- or add more to one you already have with us.

The sooner you start saving or adding to the amount you're putting away for future college costs, the easier it will be.
