What is the value of higher education?

This tool shows how pursuing a higher education may pay off financially during your earning lifetime. If you already have a college degree, furthering your education with an advanced degree may also pay off financially. The tool does not factor in additional taxes you owe on higher incomes, or higher retirement and Social Security benefits that usually accompany higher earnings.
