Wonderful new opportunity for Credit Union Members with
College-Bound Children or Grandchildren

Collegiate Funding Solutions (CFS) has developed a comprehensive set of analysis tools, information and insight to help make the daunting task of planning for college expenses manageable. As a member of Pittsford FCU, this service is now available Free of Charge!

Over the last few years, as college costs have increased dramatically, a significant number of credit union members have expressed great concern over funding their children's college education - without sacrificing their retirement savings in the process. With four-year college costs ranging between $52,000 and $132,000, college planning has never been more important.

Now, Pittsford FCU members have the tools necessary to help solve the college funding challenge - whether your annual income is $50,000 or $500,000. Planning ahead is essential, and this service is valuable for those with children that are 8 months or 18 years of age.

Think of CFS as a TurboTax Online for college expense planning. One of the primary objectives of TurboTax is to help you minimize your tax bill. Similarly, one of the primary objectives of the online college planning service is to help you reduce your college expense. The practical benefit can be potentially thousands of dollars of savings on your out-of-pocket college costs!

We are thrilled to be one of the exclusive credit unions in the country able to offer this unique and much-needed online service. Pittsford FCU is committed to educating and helping parents of college-bound children understand their options for college planning and ways to leverage the options for their maximum benefit.
