How to fund a post-secondary education in America today is one our country’s biggest challenges. We have all seen the statistics about how much debt students incur to complete some college work—and the degree to which that debt affects their later decisions to marry, buy a home, or even save for retirement.
At Aurora we help you examine a wide range of financing alternatives as you or your children look to further your/their education. We start by helping you quantify how much funding you need for education. Next we help you select the appropriate funding vehicles and calculate lump sum, annual, or monthly funding options.
The government has established a number of ways to encourage Americans to save for education expenses. We help you evaluate the various plans (e.g. 529 Plans, Educational IRAs, etc.). Additionally, we will also outline how gifting strategies can help offset education expenses as well.
