Trying to “Survive This Economy” and pay for your kids’ college education has become tougher than ever in recent years.
Illinois Treasurer Dan Rutherford suspended a top administrator for a college-savings program because she let some state employees in on a state-matching opportunity before the public heard about it.
Illinois State Treasurer Dan Rutherford concedes there were mistakes made in a promotion for the state’s Bright Start college fund program.
About 7,300 people who contributed money to the state’s Bright Start college savings plan–thinking they’d get a $250 matching contribution and didn’t–have a chance to get their money back.
Because its Web site wasn’t updated, several participants in the Bright Start college savings program will not be getting the matching donations they expected.
