Benefits of Child Education Calculator

Education planning is a long term project and can be a difficult one. There could be unforeseen circumstances that can throw you off your Financial goals. The child education calculator comes in handy and generates the estimated education costs for a set number of years keeping in mind the rate of inflation. Not only can this help you get a fair estimate but also help you plan your finances better.

Why Should you Plan your child’s higher education?

With the rising rate of inflation and it can never be too early for you to be planning your child’s education expenses. It is important to have a plan in place keeping in mind as any delay in the formulation of the right investment strategy could prove detrimental to your child’s future. While economic fluctuations are unpredictable, planning early can give a certain amount of immunity against it. Planning becomes all the more important if you plan to send your child for post graduate studies, as it will serve as a financial cushion at such crucial times. Since this a very long term plan, a wise strategy would be to start putting aside small sums of money today, rather than allowing yourself to get overwhelmed by large payments and lack of savings later.

Other Long term Investments you should do to help your child’s future education

Equity Funds can be a good option for investments for you if you have a small child who still has 15-18 years until undergraduate studies. This is recommended since over such a long period of time the Volatility in returns tend to balance out. A high level of equity can also help counter the inflation rate. You can invest in a SIP that would help you build a corpus steadily, or even opt for a lump sum deposit in case you have a substantial amount to invest . The remaining 30-35% of the Portfolio can be diverted to safer options like PPF, Tax saving fixed deposits and tax free Bonds. For a short term focus of about 5 years, investing in Fixed Income options like fixed deposits and PPF would be a wise choice. Even though the returns are lower, they are guaranteed and the risk involved is less as well.
