Free FAFSA Guide
No matter which way you decide to file your FAFSA (remember you have three options: FAFSA on the Web, MyStudentAid mobile app, or the paper PDF version), it is always wise to create a Federal Student Aid ID (FSA ID) username and password.
Your FSA ID is essentially your federal student aid credentials to file the FAFSA. Think of it as a username and password, because that’s what it is. It is also a way to electronically sign your FAFSA, and it is considered to be your personal legal signature.
Each person who needs to provide information for a FAFSA will need their own FSA ID—this means, not only students but parents may need their own FSA ID as well. An FSA ID will be associated with the social security number of the account holder.
It is strongly recommended that everyone create their own FSA ID to avoid issues later. If a username or password is unknown, the user will have to take a few extra steps and call the Federal Student Aid Information Center (FSAIC) to help unlock their account.

Your FSA ID is your credential into your federal financial aid world—your username and password needs to be confidential!! Not only can you use it to electronically sign documents, but you can use it to log into your My Federal Student Aid account which holds your federal grant and federal student loan information.
