College-bound: What parents need to consider before sending their kids off to college

Did you know that your college student needs an estate plan? "Why," you may ask? The answer comes down to age.

Many parents consider putting estate plans in place as a vital element for their family’s financial foundation; a means of protecting their loved ones from unnecessary stress, harm and distress in the event of a crisis. Yet many parents aren’t aware that getting an estate plan in place for college-bound students or adult children is just as important. As students start to head back to school, consider a few practical tips to help your child truly be ready for their academic careers. <>
