WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AT MY APPOINTMENT?
At your scheduled appointment, caseworkers will begin by collecting basic information, including who is in your household, where you live, and income information. Your caseworker will review a monthly budget to understand what expenses you have. We will use information from your budget to discuss the forms of assistance EFAA may be able to provide, in addition to a variety of community resources that may be of assistance.

Please do your best to bring the following information to your appointment:
- Current proof of address (like a utility or phone bill or lease)
- Photo ID
- Current income verification
- Estimate or documentation of financial request (for example, a lease, Demand for Payment, medical or dental work estimate, utility bill)
