Can you invest for retirement and education

Can you invest for retirement and education?

Typically, this time of year is filled with graduation ceremonies and celebrations. But with the coronavirus pandemic, not much has been typical lately. Eventually, though, things will return to normal and schools will reopen for in-person learning. And if you have young children, you may want to save for their higher education, whether that be college or trade school. At the same time, though, you’re moving ever doser to retirement. Can you save for your kids’ education and a comfortable retirement for yourself at the same time?

Summer tanager

Summer tanager

The summer tanager migrates from South America each spring to breed and raise their young. Pecan Plantation Master Naturalist Gary Marks of the Rio Brazos Chapter took this photo of a juvenile summer tanager. The adult male is a strawberry red (often thought to be a male cardinal), and the adult female has a mustard yellow-orange color. Tanagers feed primarily on wasps. They uniquely capture their prey by the wings and then remove the stinger.They typically nest in cottonwood, willows or hardwood trees along streams.
