Unbeknownst to most, the COVID-19 relief bill passed at the end of 2020 included some significant changes to the FAFSA. These changes will likely be a huge disruption in the college planning landscape that will require new strategies for your clients. There are distinct winners and losers with the new legislation. These changes sit on top of the massive changes to the college process in the last 2 years, including how colleges award scholarships, ACT testing cancellations, and rules for how/when colleges can offer deals to families. This presentation will educate advisors around the impact the changing landscape will have on their clients and provide opportunities to work with multiple generations!
- How FAFSA is used by colleges and the federal government
- How FAFSA changes will impact families with multiple children in college or where parents are divorced
- How FAFSA changes will shift potential savings strategies
