Easy Access to a New Social Security Card

We have exciting news about a new online service that is available in your state! If you need a replacement Social Security card, you may be able to request it using your personal my Social Security account.

Avoid a trip to the office and waiting in line. Encourage your friends and family to find out whether they can take advantage of this service by visiting www.socialsecurity.gov/ssnumber. We continue to make this service available to other states. Check back often for states added.

Remember to use your account to check your Social Security Statement each year to verify your annual earnings and get an estimate of your future benefits. If you currently receive benefits, you can use your account to get a benefit verification letter, check your benefit and payment information, change your address and telephone number, start or change your direct deposit, or get a replacement SSA-1099 or SSA-1042S for your taxes.

We hope you take advantage of the many services available through your convenient, secure, and free my Social Security account at: www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount.

 

 

 

NOVA Partners with Inceptia for Default Prevention

You’re not alone when it comes to student loans. NOVA has partnered with Inceptia, a division of National Student Loan Program (NSLP), to provide you with FREE assistance on your Federal student loan obligations to ensure successful, and comfortable, loan repayment. Inceptia’s friendly customer representatives may reach out to you if your loan(s) become delinquent.

Inceptia will stay in touch with you via phone calls, letters, and/or emails to help you find answers to your questions and solutions to your issues.

When it’s time to start repaying your student loans, don’t get stressed. If you’re confused about repayment plans or feel your loans are too impossible to tackle, we’ve got the money knowledge and resources to help. Inceptia may contact you with information about loan repayment options. Until then, get some loan knowledge from the Knowl at MoneyKnowl.org.

Bookstore Purchases via Financial Aid for Spring 2019

Students who wish to purchase books and supplies at a NOVA Bookstore using excess financial aid must complete the Bookstore Authorization e-Form each year on their NOVAConnect “To Do List.”  The bookstore purchase period begins on Saturday, 12/29/18 for online purchases and on Wednesday, 1/2/19 for purchases made on campus, and it closes on Monday, 1/28/19.  A second bookstore purchase will be available from 3/2/19 – 3/24/19 for students who still have excess aid that has not disbursed.

Before attempting to use your financial aid at a campus bookstore, be sure to review the checklist below.

  • Are you enrolled in classes?
  • Do you have an approved financial aid award large enough to cover tuition, fees and books?
  • Do you have a valid NOVACard?
  • Is your account free of holds?

If the answer to any of the above is “no”, please review you NOVAConnect “To Do List” and visit a campus financial aid office or contact the 24 Hour Student Support Center at 1-855-323-3199 if you have any questions.
