A financial services company has reformatted publications that can help financial services professionals explain college savings plan options.

John Hancock Freedom 529, Boston, a unit of Manulife Financial Corp., Toronto, says it has revised the 529 program seminar kit to fit on just one CD, to simplify the process of creating a professional-looking seminar.

The unit also has resized a college cost slide projector to fit in a conventional Size Number 10 mailing envelope.
