poverty stress

so I get email from UCB Financial Aid saying my financial aid package has changed but it doesn't say how but rather that I can go to the website you go to for this sort of information to see how it's changed so I go there but it doesn't look changed to me so I check to see what amount has been sent to the big money clearinghouse department in the UC sky and it looks the same and I check to see that my fees have been paid and they have and I check to see what is leftover and it is the same as before and then I check my bank account to see if the leftovers have hit my account yet and they have not so now I'm worried about just what has changed and how.

will they take money away? will they give me more? why do they wait until after disbursement time to change things or to tell me they've changed things when really they haven't?

I suppose I could call the fin aid office and try talking to a real person. this is rarely satisfying but there is a chance I could get something like concrete information from them.
