Prepare for the rising cost of college.
How much do you need to save?
Your loved one will be ready to leave the nest before you know it, which means it’s crucial to start saving for their education. As the cost of college continues to climb, you can help them rise to the occasion by setting savings goals now.
The cost of college is rising.
In 2022-2023, the average published tuition and fee price for full-time in-state students at a public four-year institution is $10,940. 20 years ago, the average cost was $6,690.1
The value of education.
Despite the rising costs, saving for your loved one’s postsecondary education is still a wise investment. Studies show the further an individual goes in school, the more opportunities and earning potential they will have down the road. That’s why investing now can pay big dividends later.
