Mother’s Day Poll Shows Moms Concerned About Paying For Their Children’s Education

What’s keeping you up at night? If you’re like most Moms, it’s retirement and paying for your children’s education. A recent poll by Nesbitt Burns found that:

  • 83% of surveyed mothers are concerned about affording their ideal retirement
  • 67% are worried about paying for their children’s education
  • 40% of mothers stated that they or their family do not have a financial plan – potentially putting these families at risk of not being able to fund key life events

According to Charyl Galpin, co-head, BMO Nesbitt Burns, “Canadians feel they need, on average, more than $650,000 for retirement, and a post secondary education may cost as much as $140,000 for a child born in 2013.” The really daunting thing about these figures is that the projected cost of $140,000 for post secondary education is after tax income. How much will you have to earn to fund $140,000 in education costs? Even if you combine student loans and grants, it will merely be a drop in the bucket.

“If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail!”
