As of today, the FSA ID, which consists of a user-created username and password, has replaced the PIN. Similar to how the PIN was used, it allows users to electronically access personal information on Federal Student Aid Web sites as well as electronically sign a FAFSA.
Creating your new FSA ID takes less than five minutes to complete. During the process, you may link your FSA ID to your PIN and prepopulate most of the fields on the form. Please visit fsaid.ed.gov to create your FSA ID!
PS. Don’t forget that the parent signing the FAFSA or requesting a Parent PLUS Loan must have an FSA ID as well.
