The expenses related to my child's post-secondary education for the first 13 weeks amounted to $4,500. Can we ask for the $5,000 permitted for the first Educational Assistance Payments (EAP)?

No, the amount of the first EAP payable to cover the first 13 consecutive weeks in a qualifying program is limited to the lesser of the actual educational expenses and $5,000. Since your child’s education expenses totaled $4,500, the first EAP payment is for $4,500.
