Saving for Your Child’s Education

You want your kids to go to college. They're not the only ones with homework to do.

With tuition costs rising faster than inflation, the challenge of funding a child's education can be daunting. The wide variety of funding options available can further complicate your task. Student loans, financial aid, tax credits, and several tax-advantaged savings plans, including IRAs, are all possibilities. 

It's important to fully understand each of your available options in order to develop a comprehensive plan. Starting this process as early as possible and staying on course will be the key to your financial success.

Our CFS Financial Advisors focus on three main areas when helping you to develop a savings plan for your child:

• Determining your savings needs
• Assessing your budget
• Determining the right mix of funding options

Our CFS Financial Advisors will help you manage your plan by periodically reviewing your portfolio and recommending adjustments to reflect major life changes, market conditions, and the economy.
