For this series of questions, the FAFSA asks you to report your parent’s Social Security Number(s), exact date(s) of birth, first initial(s), and full last name(s) for further verification and accuracy.
You will notice that you have two options: “Parent 1” and “Parent 2.” You may choose whichever of your parents for either field, but please be sure to enter the correct information into each of these separate fields (if applicable) as it appears on their Social Security card(s) and birth certificate(s). Do not mix “Parent 1” figures with “Parent 2” as this may cause an error in your application.
