It’s hard to believe, but the return to the classroom is right around the corner. From elementary school to advanced degrees, now is a good time to see what financial resources may be available to you. This issue will examine that, and things you should know about protecting your home while you are away on vacation or business.
Did you know?
According to the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), in 2014 there were about 12 million college students under age 25 and 8.2 million students 25 years old and over.
Many scholarship and fellowship programs do not have age restrictions, and there are no age restrictions on eligibility for federal student financial aid.
The International Connections Academy (iNaCA) virtual curriculum is an affordable alternative which can help K-12 students be successful in their studies. As a Pearson employee, you also receive a discount.
The summer months of July and August have the most burglaries with February having the fewest crimes, and most of these crimes occur in the daylight hours.
The typical burglar resides within two miles of the target home and may check for signs that you’re on vacation—such as flyers or newspapers at your door, an un-mowed lawn, or trash cans left at the curb.
