How Much Will You Need to Save?
Over the past 20 years, college costs have risen much more than the general rate of inflation. For many parents, funding their child’s college education will be one of their largest and most significant expenses. Therefore, saving money for a college education requires foresight and planning. To start planning a savings goal should be established.
