North Carolina Financial Advisor Provides Tips For College Funding

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Jan. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Jeremy Turner, President of SAFE College Funding, launched his newest website www.payingformydegree.com to provide advice and guidance to the thousands of families nationwide who are struggling to send their children to college.

"Families everywhere are overpaying for college and are feeling overwhelmed by the college process. Having personally felt the pain of navigating the college system without proper guidance, I want to help other families get their students into and through the best college possible for the least amount of money, all without Mom and Dad going broke in the process," says Turner.

The cost of education is rising at startling rates and the economy still hasn't returned to pre-2008 levels. This combination has made parents question how they are going to afford college for their kids. In fact, Americans aged 60 and over carry the student college loan burden and now account for billions of dollars debt, which prompted Turner to create Paying for My Degree.

Through "Five Secrets to Making College Affordable," www.payingformydegree.com is able to provide parents viable solutions to tackling their children's college tuition bill without raiding their retirement assets. Those rules are:

  1. Don't Assume You Won't Qualify for Financial Aid
  2. Learn the Difference between "Sticker Price" and "True Cost"
  3. Consider Career Planning Prior To School Selection
  4. Know How Your Assets Impact Financial Aid
  5. Apply for Financial Aid

Paying for My Degree takes the reader step-by-step through these rules, giving parents the knowledge to help pay their child's way through college without taking a huge toll on their retirement.

Turner adds, "This new website will surely help many families achieve their college dreams without the financial nightmare."
