College Resources

Helping pay for a child's college costs can be one of the most financially challenging situations with which parents have to deal.  Though I almost always counsel clients against sacrificing some of their retirement savings for college costs, this advice almost always goes unheeded.  However, I also recommend that families use a more thorough process for screening schools that includes a college's generosity when it comes to awarding grants and minimizing student or parental loans.  The sites listed below should help you in your research:

Screening Candidate Colleges

Understanding Your Medicare Options

Rating the Plans

Calculating Health Care Costs

Medicare Plan Assistance
