To receive federal financial aid, you need to submit the FAFSA form (Free Application for Federal Student Aid)
The only website you should use to fill out this form is https://fafsa.ed.gov
There will be other websites that have it, but this is the official one.
For optimal results, complete the FAFSA as soon as possible in January of each year.
You can update it in February when you have completed your current tax forms.
Here are some websites that will help you understand more about the FAFSA:
