As sure as the swallows return to Capistrano, all over America the latest migration of students prepares to descend on college campuses. Depending on whether your student is facing year one or is farther along the higher education highway, their individual stress levels may range from sheer terror to borderline boredom. For you, concerns may be running the gamut from empty nest issues to “How are we going to pay for this?”
Not that we want to add any wood to the mental and emotional fires, but college-bound season is also the perfect time to schedule a session with Jon Jepsen of SentryWest Insurance, your Trusted Choice® independent insurance agent.
College raises a plethora of insurance issues that are far better addressed prior to departure than after. Here are just a few questions to consider:
