If you are using your parent’s information, they will need to register for an FSA ID as well. You’ll also need: • Your Social Security number • Your driver’s license number • Your (parent's) tax records and W-2 forms • Records of your (parent's) untaxed income and all of your (parent's) assets • Bank statements, stocks, bonds and other investment records Now follow this five-step plan for federal aid. Remember: The FAFSA is now available October 1. 1. Go to and login using your FSA ID. Your FAFSA will be processed quicker if you apply online. Plus, your information will be saved for next year.
