What qualifies as financial need for work authorization?

As far as justifying why you need a work permit, what counts as financial need? Would hoping to attend college (and pay for tuition, room and board, meal plans, and textbooks), hoping to move out, and trying to help your parents out with expenses qualify as financial need?

Generally, to show economic need a person must show that employment is required to meet everyday living expenses for themselves and/or their family. For example, monthly food budget, rent, transportation cost, child care etc. It's advisable to summarize your fixed expenses and provide copies of bills in support of an application for employment authorization.
