Smart Track Minute: The ugly truth regarding rising college costs and devalued savings [Video]

From 1999 to 2009, the cost of college nearly doubled.

The value of assets such as stocks and home equity, meanwhile, fell through the same stretch.

The exponential growth of college costs has significantly outstripped the value of most people’s savings.

As a result, even if you’ve been saving since your student was born, that still may not be enough. 

This means that scholarships, grants and loans, as well as planning strategies to maximize the savings you do have, are more essential than ever.

However, all of these forms of funding can be difficult to track down and organize. 

Luckily, a Smart TrackTM college planning expert can help with identifying the best funding plan for your family, as well as putting together an overall strategy for paying for your student’s education.
