College planning usually ushers forth a collective groan from parents of high schoolers. If we’re trying to pay off debt and wanting to save for retirement, it’s tough to find extra money to put aside for your children’s higher learning.
Today, Lukas Coaching’s newest Financial Coach, Jaime Thompson, joined to discuss how to set appropriate expectations – for parents AND for kids. Whether state schools, private colleges, or community college options are available, you can determine the best path for the money you have.
Jaime also shared what you’d have to save monthly to cover the cost of a state university education if you start at the birth of a child, age 5, age 10, or age 15.
