Information offered on saving for college

Staff members from the Oregon College Savings Plan and the newly created Oregon ABLE Savings Plan for people with disabilities will give free presentations on using the state programs to save for higher education.

The presentation College Savings 101 is from 6 to 6:45 p.m. Wednesday, May 31, at the Medford Public Library, 205 S. Central Ave.

Families can learn tips for saving for higher education, including trade schools, community colleges and universities, using the Oregon College Savings Plan. The state-run program offers tax advantages and lower investing fees than typically found in the private sector.

The ABLE to Save presentation is from 6:45 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 31, at the library.

For decades, people with disabilities were unable to have more than $2,000 or they would risk losing government benefits, such as Medicaid and Supplemental Security Income disability payments. With the recently launched Oregon ABLE Savings Plan, they are able to save money without losing critical benefits.

All ages are welcome and refreshments will be served.
