PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 20 /PRNewswire/ — Insurance.com(TM) and the Futuretrust(R) college savings program are partnering to offer families the auto insurance they need, while also helping them save for their child’s college education.

Futuretrust is a no-cap, no-fee MasterCard(R)-linked college savings program that helps families get a “jump” on saving for college by automatically contributing a minimum of 1% of a member’s everyday purchases to a tax-free 529 college savings plan of their choice.

Insurance.com offers independent, unbiased rates from leading companies that will help families find the auto insurance coverage that’s right for them,” said David Roush, CEO of Insurance.com. “This partnership provides an opportunity for Insurance.com to inform new families about the best insurance prices and benefits available, while also helping families educate their children.
