Hi I was wondering if anyone could give me some professional advise on my situation. My dad suffered a work accident about a year ago and had his leg injured. For a while our main source of income was my father's workers compensation check. My parensta are seperated and i live with my father so he had no spouse to help him with the financial things. The doctors gave him many restrictions on what sort of physical labor he could do. His job before the accident was to repair old tires so when he tried to go back to work the company wouldn't give him his job back. He then applied for disability. The check they send him barely covers any axpenses. My older brothers and sisters have tried to pitch in as much as tehy can to help. I am the first in my family to attedn college and i am not really familiar with the process. I would liek to know if my father being on disability will be of a banefit to me financially when applying for FAFSA. Does anyone know of any grant or federal aid program available for students in my situation. (I am a resident of Texas.) Any information or advise you have will be of great use and much appreciated! Thank You!!!!
