2024–25 FAFSA® Form
You might need the following information or documents as you fill out the 2024–25 FAFSA form:
  • Your parents’ SSNs if you’re a dependent student
  • Tax returns
  • Records of child support received
  • Current balances of cash, savings, and checking accounts
  • Net worth of investments, businesses, and farm

One thing you DO NOT! need for the FAFSA® form is money! The FAFSA form is FREE, so if a website
asks you to pay to fill it out, you’re not dealing with the official FAFSA site. Remember, this is a
government application, so it’s on a .gov website.
