Anyone else having problems? Sometimes it works---sometimes it doesn't---typically get this after i log-in---sometimes I get to my info---but when I try to go the next screen to enter info----we get kicked off----GRRRR----

See note below---after log-in (Note the copy regarding the 2010-2011 option!)

"FAFSA on the Web has encountered an error. This could be due to normal maintenance or because you selected a 2010-2011 option that is not yet available. 2010-2011 options will be available beginning on January 1, 2010. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Select Home Page to return to the FAFSA on the Web main page."

    Good time frame for maintenance. Much better than Tuesday midnight to 6am Wednesday when people are usually sleeping.

    I was having the same problem. Now it is after 11, let's see what happens.

    I give up, now it keeps defaulting to last year's forms.

    The 11:00 am time is for local Guam filers.

    This is without a doubt, more Government BS....bunch of crap....written by idots. Can't reset a password, can't even take a message thru "COntact Us". Stupid Government.
