Both Parents will be Unemployed
My parent's EFC is 0000. Currently, as of now, my dad is working but he is of age to receive SS Benefits (the ones you receive at 65). He has a myriad of health issues, including being unable to afford a medication that costs $1000 per month, and we are barely getting by.
The government won't give him welfare healthcare unless he goes on SS benefits and quits his job (I don't know but it's something along the lines of meeting specific income qualifications etc, etc), which means both he and my mom won't be working, so effectively, both my parents will be unemployed and their only source of income would be my aunt/sister paying for rent/misc living expenses and us qualifying for welfare. I understand that you need to file a tax return in order to do a FAFSA, but if both of my parents are unemployed and getting by via welfare/outside help/SS benefits, will that adversely affect my financial aid, they won't have to file a tax return. Would that affect my financial aid in any way? Thank you.
