Similarly, I'm doing the FAFSA for financial aid now knowing full well that I have too many assets and too much income to qualify for anything. However, there is a good possibility that I could be laid off shortly, and as long as I've at least filed the FAFSA, I can call the colleges and report that significant change. My understanding is that I won't have that option if I haven't even filed the forms.

It is for this reason that I'm even bothering to do the forms

Many private schools also require that you submit a CSS Profile as well as a FAFSA for financial aid.

I hope you don't get laid off; I have been off the TMF boards since early December so I am behind on the latest news.
