College Planning Work/Life Benefits for Companies

One of the most expensive undertakings your employees will ever face is funding their children’s college education. The CPS College Work/Life Benefit Program is packed with strategies and techniques to effectively guide your employees through the entire college planning process, including college search, admissions, financial aid applications, college funding, and awards analysis. It provides a real-world approach that helps your employees prepare their student(s) for college while minimizing stress and out-of-pocket college expenses. That said, it is no surprise that in companies where employee benefits are offered, the CPS Corporate Work/Life Benefit Program is quickly becoming one of the most popular options.

Our president, Murray J. Miller, is a published author and has been recognized as one of the country’s top five college advisors by the National Association of College Funding Advisors. In the 2006-2007 academic year, he was recognized by NACFA as the number one college financial advisor nationwide.  Our professional college planning advisors have been featured speakers on the insider’s secrets on how to beat the high cost of college for numerous Fortune 500 companies as well as small companies with fewer than 100 employees. Company References available upon request.

We understand that every company is unique. Therefore, one of our professional College Planning Advisors will work with you to determine the best format for delivering a college program to your companies’ employees. We also accommodate companies that have a non-solicitation policy.  Some of the basic options are below.


College Work/Life Benefit Options

  1. Educational Workshop: Demystifying Financial Aid and Maximizing College Funding is presented live at your facility. Each employee that attends will receive an information packet and an e-book packed with useful tips and resources regarding the entire college planning process.
  2. College Prep Audio Program and Member Discounts: This option works for groups regardless of their geographical location. We will provide your employees with a free audio program and an e-book titled Winning the College Funding Game. They may also receive a discount toward an SAT/ACT test preparation program or any of our other college planning services.
  3. Individualized College Planning Consultations: All workshop attendees are given the opportunity to meet one-on-one with a professional college planning advisor to discuss their individual situation. Each employee will leave their meeting knowing their EFC (Expected Family Contribution), which is the minimum amount that the federal government will expect your family to contribute toward the cost of college, as well as your students’ chances for receiving both admission and financial aid to a given school. Consultations can be conducted either at your facility, our facility, or via the internet
  4. Advanced Personalized Services: If an employee so chooses, they can enroll in one of our proprietary Smart Track™ Programs. This is a hands-on, customized program that guides your family throughout the going to college process. This includes finding the right school, negotiating the application process, applying for financial aid, and beyond.
