Keeping grandchildren from £39,000 of Student Debt

Created by Verity in Saving for grandchildren

دراسة الاسهم السعودية الخيارات الثنائية لا احتيال In many families, going to university is considered ‘essential,’ but rising tuition fees may make a good education more of a luxury than it has been in the past.

After all, degree holders make an average of £12,000 a year more than those who never graduated. But how will your grandchild afford as much as £9,000 a year in tuition fees, plus the cost of living?


£39,000 debt


http://dinoprojektet.se/?kapitanse=programmerare-jobba-hemifr%C3%A5n&e11=da According to the Money Advice Service, students now expect to graduate with around £39,000 of debt, though some estimates put the cost closer to £54,000 depending on whether students live at home, choose the most expensive degree courses, or choose to attend university somewhere expensive like London.


Many students take out loans in order to finance their education, which can be a boon for young adults who don’t have the money to pay for tuition upfront. The loans don’t have to be repaid until they start making over £21,000 a year, after which 9 percent of all income over this line will be automatically taken as repayment.


Save as early as possible


If you don’t like the sound of your grandchild automatically getting a tenth of their pay deducted, or if you just want them to be able to choose their future without being hindered by price, there are many ways to save now so that they won’t be faced with debt later.


No matter what, it’s important to choose an account that is tax-efficient, so that the interest or capital gains are paid into your grandchild’s account completely tax-free. One way to do this is with a Junior ISA, which allows parents and grandparents to save up to £3,600 a year. Though anyone can contribute to this type of savings account, it must be initially started by a child’s legal guardian.


If your grandchild is young and has a decade or more before university, choosing a stocks and shares Junior ISA, like those on offer from Shepherd’s Friendly الخيارات الثنائية كراكن , can be more profitable than traditional cash savings accounts.


Like all investment accounts, stocks and shares Junior ISAs do not guarantee a return, but generally if your grandchild is young they will have plenty of time to ride out the ups and downs of the market.


As they grow older and approach their A-levels, it’s time to start thinking about sheltering this nest egg from risk by switching to a cash Junior ISA. Since all money in this account is held in cash, rather than in stocks or equities, you are guaranteed to get back at least as much money as you put in and the accounts are 100% backed by the government.


Of course, not everyone chooses to go to university, which is why many concerned grandparents like the Junior ISA’s flexibility. When they turn 18, your grandchildren can use the money to reduce their student debt as much as possible, but if not they can use the money to start a business, make a deposit on their first home, or even buy their first car – the possibilities are endless.
