What Financial Advisors Are Saying:

““As a fee-only financial planner I’ve found the PayForED software instrumental in helping my clients make smart college decisions. Before choosing PayForED, we evaluated many options, but picked PayForED because it is easy to use, focused on four-year cash flow and includes long-term impact of borrowing costs. It is easy to then incorporate the results into our financial planning software to show our clients the long-term impact of the different college decisions.” ”

Mike E (Financial Advisor, NC)Mike E (Financial Advisor, NC)

“Fred is the most knowledgeable person I’ve found regarding navigating the complexities of college financial planning. Missteps in the college decision, in college paying and student loan can negate much of the return on investment that attending college promises. As a CFSLA, I am now equipped to help parents and their child from their college financial decision through selecting amongst the dizzying array of student loan repayment options.”
