My situation is the following:
- my wife and I are adults who are trying to complete our first bachelor degrees respectively (we started our degrees and dropped out years ago)
- so far, we both have been eligible for our respective Pell Grants that covered all of our tuition expenses (in fact, we've been getting more money than our tuition costs, which somewhat concerns me)
- at my work, there is an added benefit of tuition reimbursement, which is capped but should be enough to cover my tuition for the year. It is free money, but I have to stay with the company for a period of time after the last payment, which isn't an issue.
- Tuition reimbursement only applies to my out of pocket expenses, and if Pell Grant covers all of my expenses - I don't get to use the tuition reimbursement money.
Is there any reason for me not to apply for FAFSA and opt for tuition reimbursement instead?
