The Belfast Free Library will host financial aid experts from FAME ME on Wednesday, February 7th from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. FAME offers in-person help to Maine students and families seeking financial aid for higher education. Experienced financial aid experts will be on hand to help families complete the application on the spot.

The FAFSA is the federal application that all schools use to determine student eligibility for federal financial aid. The form for the 2018-2019 school year is available starting January 1, 2018, and can be found at FAFSA.gov.

Families attending the sessions should bring the following information to the help sessions:

• FSA ID – this user name and password is needed to access all Federal Student Aid websites, including the FAFSA. We recommend the student and one parent create it ahead of time at fsaid.ed.gov.
• Social Security numbers (SSN) for student and parents
• Information to estimate student and parents 2015 income – such as W-2 forms or last year’s Federal Income Tax Returns – and other records of money earned
• Current bank statements for student and parents

This marks the 12th year FAME has made these In-Person FAFSA Help Sessions available to Mainers. Over the years FAME has assisted more than 7,500 families through these events.

If families are not able to attend the in-person help sessions, FAME also offers online support.
