Planning for college education for your child or children can be a major phase in your financial planning process. For some households, a four-year college program can cost more than the home. Before deciding now that you won’t be able to help put your child through college later, you should learn a little about the process. Questions to consider include:
- How much will college cost when my child will be eligible to enroll?
- How do my or my child’s assets affect the needs analysis for financial aid?
- Can I fund some or all of those future costs without increasing the assets (such as savings) used in the needs analysis formula?
- What are some of the things we should consider before my child actually applies for financial aid?
Business Continuation Planning
Business owners need to ensure that arrangements are made to guarantee that the business remains in the hands of the surviving business owners and that the estate receives adequate cash for the owner’s interest.
Key Executive Life Insurance Plans
Small business owners are typically active managers of the business and normally rely heavily on the contributions of each other. Thus, when a small business loses a key executive it must be prepared to replace that individual quickly. Key executive life insurance is designed to offset many of those company expenses.
Non-Qualified Benefit Plans
Compared with larger companies, small businesses generally have fewer resources available to provide for employee benefits. It is important that a small business maximizes the impact of money spent for employee benefits. Non-qualified benefit plans that are tailored to the needs of your business may provide the answer. Life insurance can be an ideal way to fund such plans.
