In 2017, our annual income was a very high number. Our household was in the top 1% of income easily. The same year, our sole income earner for our family passed away. Our expected income for next year is only $50,000. FAFSA unfortunately asks for 2017 income and not 2018 expected income, so although our household income this year will be far, far lower than it was last year, it will appear to the government that we are not in need of financial aid. Nobody in my family is currently working. What can I do in this situation? Can I apply for FAFSA aid while I'm already in college next year?
