What It Costs to Go to College Can vary widely depending on institution; public vs. private College costs are rising at twice the rate of inflation Average annual tuition plus expenses at a private four-year college is about $35,000 (U.S. News, August 2010)
The College Debt Crisis Americans now owe more on their student loans than they do on their credit cards. College debt will surpass $1 trillion in 2012 – growing at a rate of $2,853 per second. As of 2009, 67 percent of graduates had debt, averaging $24,000 per student (this does not include loans taken out by parents) Student loan defaults have doubled since 2005 (CNBC, “Price of Admission: America’s College Debt Crisis”, 2012)
Cost of Buying a Home Varies widely across the U.S. Average sales price of new homes sold in U.S. was $272,900 in % down would translate to over $54,000 (Census.gov)
Cost of Retirement Saving $1 million will only amount to about $40,000 per year for the average retiree (assuming you limit your withdrawals to 4% of your savings during your first year in retirement). 41% of women and 32% of men believe they will have to work after retirement just to make ends – retirement has become a luxury. When the stock market was soaring people became obsessed with their nest egg number; now the focus is shifting to a more important number: how much retirement income your savings will provide.
Retirement saving is not just about accumulating a big pile of money!

Juvenile Applications Start saving from day one. The sooner you start, the better. Encourage loved ones to give the gift that keeps on giving. When family members and friends celebrate your child’s birth, subsequent birthdays, holidays, and religious events, tell them about your child’s college savings account. Every monetary gift they give will be part of a legacy of learning. Turn to your parents. Often, grandparents are the ones who are most aware of how difficult it is for parents to manage the financial burden alone, especially if more than one child is involved.
Juvenile Applications Because college is seen as the immediate expense, parents often focus on saving for education and leave retirement funding solely to their children. However, what we are experiencing RIGHT NOW is the risk of OUTLIVING your money. Think about it this way - Most children are eligible for financial aid for education in a way that they are not eligible for in saving for retirement. However, what we are experiencing RIGHT NOW is the risk of OUTLIVING YOUR MONEY Parents focus: Education… NOT RETIREMENT WILL FINANCIAL AID BE AVAILABLE FOR: ANOTHER WAY TO LOOK AT IT EDUCATION RETIREMENT YES NO
When all is said and done, a huge head start on their financial security could be the best gift you could possibly bestow… Juvenile Applications Will Consider face amount of coverage on a minor applicant EQUAL to that of the coverage on either parent (or legal guardian); unless state law dictates otherwise. Ownership / Premium Payers for minors can be parents/legal guardians or grandparents ONLY. Larger face amounts for a juvenile should include a detailed outline of the family / household income, net worth, premium funding sources, and any other supporting information. HIPAA form is required for each child. Signatures are required at age 15 and over, as well as an HIV form.
