I need help with the deposit and my APS bill due to being late. APS now requires a deposit. I helped my son and his family move to Phoenix from Chino Valley AZ. I also ended up blowing a tire on my old truck and had to get a new one. So to say the least, I am extremely behind. If I can get caught up this month, I am budgeted for the months in the future. I have had APS for over 10 years and this month I am having a difficult time. I would appreciate any assistance at all. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

I been living in Mesa Arizona for two and a half years now and have been moving and moving and moving. I keep getting slum lords. The first place had mold and never rented the apartment to me. I paid for also stole my furniture while I was moving from back to the front of the building. The harbor on Broadway 2nd place had mold wires hanging out of wall fixtures when it rained destroyed my laptops and other electronics. They had my light hooked on the soda machine washer and drier and upstairs night lights. Now I was just evicted from an apartment that had bed bugs, mold, I had to leave all my things.
I'm staying with a friend and his family. I receive S.S.I. the place I was at my light bill got up to $477.00 I have to go next month from here. I think I’ve found a good apartment but need help with lights and deposit on the first. I'm not feeling well I have a bad heart and high blood pressure type 2 diabetes. Can somebody please help me.

Hello, we are in AZ. Our electricity was turned off on Friday due to non payment as the APS company said. However housing authority has been paying them 181.00 every month. So they have been receiving minimal payment. We are extremely low income. We receive 509.00 a month from department if economic security. I have sent APS that information and yet nothing has been done to help us pay the bill. We don't have the 510.00 that they want to get our electricity back on. And we have a new born and small children. My husband is also applying for SSI because he us disabled. HELP please.

What did the housing authority say? If they were paying $181 per month, that didn't cover the utility bill from APS? As that most have been a very expensive bill. You may want to look into weatherization and energy conservation programs in Arizona too. But there is also financial aid for electricity bills. Read more.

Hi, I live in Phoenix, AZ and I am in need of electric assistance. I have two toddlers and I don't have the funds to put towards my energy box this month. I recently had to sale some items and pawn a few of our precious items to put money towards our electric. We would gladly appreciate it if we would get an assistance.
Thanks,

Selling your goods is an effective way to raise money for your utility bills. Also, try contacting some non-profits in the community. Or inquire into payment plans, as there are many offered in Maricopa County and Phoenix by the local electric companies. Find them here. http://www.needhelppayingbills.com/html ... e_pro.html
