Normally I am the one answering these questions, but I have a good question that I need answered...

I have had financial aid now for about 4 years. I got married the middle of last year but my tax preparer filed us under single and my old name.

I need to re-apply for this upcoming school year...what do I do? File under my old name or do it under my new name with the info on my tax return?

I just had this issue.. they told me I had to file under the name that social security has it under  so in other words your name must match what social security has you as.. for me I hadnt switched my name yet so I still have to file under my maiden name  but as soon as I change that just go into your fafsa and change it..
