A Federal Student Aid ID [FSA ID] is a lifetime username and password combination linked to your U.S. Social Security Number [SSN] used to securely access U.S. Department of Education Student Aid.
An FSA ID is required for students and parents of dependent students to access, update, sign and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid.
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid [FAFSA] allows students to apply for more than $150 billion in grants, loans, and work-study funds. Check out this video for info about the FAFSA and the resources available to help fill out this important application.
