401kid's Education Benefits Platform
While parents rate saving for college as a top concern, most are failing to meet the enormous and rapidly growing costs. Without incurring additional benefits costs, companies can now facilitate education planning by offering it as a voluntary benefit with 401kid as a partner.
Despite the wealth of financial information and products in today's marketplace, there have not been any simple, time and cost effective solutions to the challenge of education financial planning, available to employees. Employees have spoken about the desire to have their employers provide such tools – 401kid provides a chance for employers to answer the call.
Let 401kid be your benefits consulting guide in designing the most flexible and objective Education Plan for your company.
