和大家讨论一下。 This is my understanding about how Expected Family Contribution (EFC) is computed:
(1) 5.6% of assets: then what are assets? Non-retirement accounts including checking, savings and investments, HSA, home liquid?
(2) 32% of the part of AGI* between $50k ~ $100k
(3) 42% of the part of AGI* above $100k + any 401(k)/403(b) contribution "add back"
*AGI is prior-prior year's (for the coming 2019 academic year, you use your 2017 tax return's AGI)
Did I miss or mistake anything? Which schools use the above method to figure out EFC?
I'm not sure about how home liquid/debt is treated.
