Over the last few years, as college costs have increased dramatically, many clients have expressed concern over how to pay for their children's college education without sacrificing their retirement savings plan. With average four-year college costs ranging from $50,000 to $120,000* (per child), that concern is legitimate.
Unfortunately, many parents – regardless of income – inefficiently prepare and pay for college, needlessly diverting thousands of dollars from their retirement savings.
In order to better fulfill our fiduciary responsibility to our clients, Fisher Financial Strategies is offering an enhanced college planning capability that is on the leading edge of a change in the way that financial planning experts are helping families solve their college funding dilemma.
Instead of strategies for simply saving for college, this enhanced expertise focuses on helping families reduce their college costs, regardless of their income, by implementing financial strategies related to college planning.
The practical benefit of this enhanced capability may be thousands of dollars in savings on your college bill – dollars that could be reallocated for other vital purposes, such as retirement or debt reduction.
