What if I’m recently widowed?

What if I’m recently widowed?

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) form asks for your marital status as of the day you fill it out, but it also asks for income and tax return information from 2018. Therefore, your marital status might be different than it was when you filed your tax return.

If you recently became widowed, you'll need to subtract the tax return information for your spouse to correctly answer the FAFSA questions only about yourself.
