I love how the Internet has provided such easy access to so many things, including bank accounts.  Accessing bank accounts online makes it so easy to check balances, pay bills, transfer money between accounts and much more.  The problem is, at times, there are questions that need to be answered, but not a forum in which to ask for help.  I do not always like to contact customer service or email them since it usually takes too much time to get a response. However, having the ability to pose questions in a community type setting allows for instant feedback.

Saving For College

Wells Fargo Bank now has a community forum where you can go to ask various types of questions; such as how much should you be saving for college?  This allows you to get quick feedback in a community setting. You can also search the discussions to see if your question has already been answered.  Currently the community discussion is centered on saving for college, but they will be adding more topics in the future.

In order to search the community, you do not have to be a member of Wells Fargo of the community.  However you do need to sign up as a member of the community if you would like to ask a question.  There are some very interesting discussions on how much money to save for college, how to apply for a loan, what to do if you have not saved any money for your child’s education, and more.

Planning for education has become more important now than ever due to its impact on lifetime earnings and its rising costs. Most people find the process on how to plan and the amount to plan for confusing and somewhat overwhelming. This community is designed to make that process easier.
