Survivors Benefits & Need-Based Grants

caffeinateddcaffeinatedd Posts: 1Registered User New Member
Hi all,
I'm starting to look at colleges and money is a huge issue for me. My father died in 2005 and my mother is unemployed. However, my family receives monthly Social Security "Survivors Benefits" checks but to my knowledge, that money does not have to be addressed in your FAFSA.
My grades are high and I will probably be the valedictorian of my graduating class; do you think that I will fare well when applying for financial aid?
Does anyone have experience in a similar situation?
Thanks xx
