Preparer's Social Security Number


This is question 106 on the FAFSA.

When a preparer completes the student's application, the preparer must provide a Social Security Number (SSN), since he/she is taking responsibility for the accuracy of the information that is provided on the form.

A preparer is anyone who charges a fee for helping you fill out your FAFSA.

Typically high school counselors, school financial aid administrators, or other mentors do not charge a fee to help you complete your application, so they are not considered preparers unless you paid them for their services.

For security purposes, the Preparer’s Social Security Number field will indicate “REPORTED” when a preparer’s SSN is present and the transaction is viewed in Student Inquiry.
