College Planning

Education is an investment in your – or your child’s – future. We’ll help you make it a sound investment.

While the benefits of higher education are many, failure to plan for the financial costs associated with a four-year degree or postgraduate studies can result in excessive student loan debt that limits financial mobility later in life.

Our CUSO Financial Services, L.P. (CFS) licensed financial consultants help our members plan for all costs associated with college and position them in a plan for long-term financial success beyond graduation day.

Contact a financial consultant near you to schedule a complimentary consultation.

When we meet with you, we’ll discuss your situation, financial goals and:

  • Determine an estimate of how much college may cost.
  • Select a college savings plan that may have tax advantages that would be beneficial to you.
  • Recommend the right mix of investments to fund your plan depending on:
    • How much money you can contribute.
    • How long you have to grow your money.
    • Your other investments.
    • Your risk tolerance.
