Amend FAFSA for assets?

gcnorthgcnorth Registered User Posts: 186 Junior Member
I was under the impression that FAFSA could just be amended for income (ie, after filing taxes) but when we went to amend income numbers assets were also available for amendment. Can we update assets to todays balances?. Or is that only to make corrections to asset balances as of the date FAFSA was originally filed?

    It is just to make corrections for something incorrectly entered on the original date.
    Can I use Corrections on the Web to make corrections or updates to an application I have already submitted?

    Yes. If the information you entered on your FAFSA was incorrect as of the day you signed the FAFSA, you can use Corrections on the Web to correct your answers.

    You cannot change

    * Your Social Security Number (SSN). If your SSN is incorrect, you must complete a new application with the correct SSN.
    * Your financial information, unless it was incorrect as of the day the FAFSA was submitted.
    * Your marital status, unless it was incorrect as of the day the FAFSA was submitted.

    If you feel you have special circumstances that should be considered after your FAFSA is processed, you should contact your school’s financial aid office to find out how you might be able to correct your application.
