CPAs: New ‘Post-COVID College Planning’ Solutions

College: One of the Greatest Threats to Retirement Security

The Wall Street Journal warns parents that College is one of the greatest threats to retirement security, yet millions of parents are unaware that COVID-19 changed the College Planning process forever. Too many Advisors and CPAs have focused exclusively on college funding and giving advice on college selection. This not only omits essential components of the College Planning process (that fail to prevent the startling statistics below), but adds potential liability exposure for the Advisor.

A true Post-COVID College Plan goes beyond college funding. It is a series of interconnected decisions – each with its own cost – that will affect the financial lives of parents and grandparents of college-bound students for decades.

This is why LFE worked with Financial and Academic Advisors nationally to create the 1st turn-key CAP SystemTM – a step-by-step on-demand College Action Plan – for families of college-bound students. It’s the missing component in most Retirement Plans today!
