FAFSA time!

Whether it is your child's first year of college next year, or you are in the midst of it, January/February means Fafsa time! Even if you think you may earn too much for your child to get any aid, think again! It is worth the effort to apply. If your child has gotten aid in previous years, you and your child must fill the online forms out EVERY year!  It takes a little time, but is fairly simple. You mush have your tax info available, but if you don't want to wait until you file your taxes, you can do an estimate. One warning: if your estimate is really off, then you have to ammend the Fafsa. Make sure you are going to the actual site:  http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/  .
There are similar sites that try to charge you money; be careful, and good luck!
