EDUCATION PLANNING

Education Planning

Higher education costs represent one of the most significant expenses many families will face, especially those with multiple college-bound children. Education-related costs have risen steadily over the last decade, making education planning more crucial than ever. However, financial planning for college doesn’t have to be complicated if you have the right financial advisor in your corner.

Our Education Planning Services Include: 

  • Setting up a college savings plan for children, grandchildren, or godchildren

Take the Guesswork Out of Education Planning

Higher education is a constantly evolving financial landscape, and it’s normal to have questions. For first-generation college students, financial planning can be particularly challenging to navigate. How much should you be saving and when should you start? How can you get the most out of your investment? What happens to the funds if your child doesn’t attend college?

At Blakeslee & Blakeslee, we specialize in providing objective professional advice and personalized service to help you prepare for any number of scenarios. Whichever savings plan is the right fit, we’re here to help you take control of your child’s or grandchild’s future education, so nothing falls through the cracks.
