When it comes to college savings plans – as it does with any financial planning decision – the choice that's best for you will depend on your unique situation, including your risk tolerance and the number of years until your child begins college.
Another consideration is your child's plans. Does he or she even plan on attending college? If so, has he or she chosen a school? Talk with your child about college, then make an appointment with your financial advisor to find the plan that best suits your needs.

This month, we salute women in business by looking at models of success
on the national and local levels.
