At Fetterman Investments, our mission is to end the student loan crisis one family at a time by helping families make smarter college buying decisions with College Pre-approval ™.
Traditionally, planning for college had been limited to a parent or family member opening a 529 account to save for a college education. After high school graduation, the student pays for college with the 529 or earmarked college funds, in addition merit or need based scholarship, and fills in the gap with student loans. This type of planning has resulted in a rapidly rising student loan debt crisis of $1.6 trillion dollars. It’s time to change the current process and begin creating comprehensive college funding plans to maximize financial aid, minimize taxes, and save for a comfortable retirement at the same time. Simply put.. Traditional college planning does not work.
During any given year 50+ million households will fall into one of three categories.
1. Planning for College- Birth to 8th Grade
2. College Decision and Education - 9th Grade to College Graduation
3. Post College Planning - Student Loan Debt Management
