Without getting into the politics of it all, Premier Anna Bligh's policy was simply to think ahead to make sure we can pay to educate our children when the time comes.
By just about every measurement we have available to us, education improves the quality of lives. Children who are better educated tend to live better, healthier and happier lives.
At Intellichoice we don't believe in waiting for politicians to get their act together for us.
Instead we have created our EGG (Education Growth Gift). It is an Education Savings Plan designed for parents and grandparents to contribute money which they know will go towards the education of the child.
Many of our clients choose to deposit a lump sum and many others choose to deposit ongoing amounts over the years. The secret is to start early and to choose a product that you know is designed to help you achieve your goals.
