Advanced "Late Stage" College Planning -
Helping Middle and High-Income Parents
Reduce Their Out-of-Pocket College Expenses
Presented By: Deborah Fox, Fox Financial Planning Network
(1 Hour of CE credit for this course)

Most financial advisors are aware of college savings strategies to recommend to their clients; however many advisors have not had much exposure to the planning stage when parents have a child in high school and the focus needs to shift from how to accumulate funds to how to mitigate the upcoming college bills. This session will cover various academic, admissions, financial aid, cash flow and tax reduction strategies advisors can recommend to their clients to potentially reduce their out-of-pocket college costs by tens of thousands of dollars. While much of the information covered will be relevant to families at all income levels, there will be an emphasis on strategies appropriate for clients who will not qualify for much or any need-based financial aid. A case study will be presented to demonstrate the application and effectiveness of combining various strategies.
