you need to complete a financial assessment form to see how much you may need to pay towards the costs of those services.

Tips on scanning or photographing documents to attach to the email:
  • the better quality the scan or photo the less likely we'll need to contact you for another version
  • make sure the scanner is a high resolution scanner so it can scan text documents
  • carefully remove staples to prevent tearing documents
  • unfold and flatten documents to reduce creases  
  • scan the whole page and each page in a document
  • save the scanned documents as PDFs
  • check the quality of each scanned document
