How much should I save?
How much depends on a lot of factors – like where your child goes to school – public or private, in state or out of state – and how much financial aid your child gets. You can’t base your calculations totally on today’s college costs, either because, on average, tuition has increased at about twice the rate of inflation.* To get a better feel for projected costs, this would be a good topic to discuss with a qualified financial professional – like your COUNTRY Financial representative.
