A study conducted by the Center for Social Development found that kids who have a college savings account (even a small one) are 2.5 times more likely to enroll in and graduate from college than children without one. Oregon State Treasurer Tobias Read joined us to talk about the benefits of creating an Oregon College Savings Plan account for a child, or even yourself! The Oregon College Savings Plan is designed to help people save for education, no matter their budget or timeline. It takes just $25 and a few minutes to get started.
