The first day of school, starting high school, graduation – these events are important milestones in not only your life but also the lives of your children and grandchildren.

With the cost of education rising, it's important to have a well-thought-out strategy to save for education expenses. Saving for education is not a one-time event but an ongoing process.

By following our five-step process, your Edward Jones advisor can develop a financial strategy to ensure that you stay on track.

First, you should become familiar with the options available to you:

Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP)

A sound strategy should help you address the following questions:

  • Have I saved enough so far to help me reach my education goals or those for my child or grandchild? 
  • How much will I need to save for my children's or grandchildren's education expenses?
  • What amount of education expenses do I plan to cover?
  • How could paying for education affect my other financial goals, such as retirement?
