"Unmet Need – Planning Shortfalls in Higher Education"

Presented by Justin Kribs, MS, CFP®,
Director of Financial Planning and Student Loan Services, InsMed Insurance Agency Inc.


Deadline: Monday, October 19

About this presentation

For more than a decade the costs associated with higher education have continually increased. Following this trend, the total debt burden for borrowers of federal loans continues its march towards $2trillion. Planners must take actionable steps to address the increasing costs of education and be prepared for future headwinds while also managing possible windfalls. The planning for higher education has become a lot more complicated then budgeting and looking for low interest rates. The talk will be primarily geared towards undergraduate students, but will also address some issues associated with planning for graduate school.
