Mississippi utilities and deposits

Post by Williams » Wed Jan 15, 2014 11:54 am

We just recently moved to Jackson, Mississippi and when we got our lights and everything in order they said a $250 deposit will be added to the first bill. I wasn't able to find a job until a couple of weeks ago, so now I need help paying the rest of the bill because Entergy is going to cut our lights off on 2/24/14. And I still have to help pay the rent. I am the only one working in my household because my father is mentally disabled, and my older sisters are just all wrapped up in themselves. There is no help from family because they look down on us because of my father disability and won't help. I have already contacted Entergy but they said they can't give us an extension on the bill because the deposit hasn't been paid yet. So if you get this email in time, please help us. Like I stated earlier, I do work, and the only reason I need help right now is because it took me so long to find a job, and because the deposit was so much at one time on a small income. Thanks for your time.

If you need money to pay a deposit for lights, then maybe try LIHEAP. The agencies that run the program is Mississippi may have referrals or suggestions, as that type of assistance is very rare. Since your dad is disabled, there will be centers in Jackson MS that offer advice to the disabled too. So try them for information, and some will help the client apply for financial aid for utilities. Find more details on LIHEAP assistance in Mississippi.

My sister and I need help paying our energy bill. She had a stroke 3 years ago and because we transferred from her mother’s residence to this new residence. Also Rankin county human resources will not help us. We can’t have our electricity turned off. Where can I turn? Who can help? We live in Brandon MS.

I am married with a disabled wife and step son now living in Newport News Virginia. In low income housing... And need an emergency release from this state back to Mississippi low income housing so need money for deposits... The home we living in is not fit and have a crack frame scenes on the walls or streaks of crack in every room that was covered up but now we can see them.
The first 3 months and even now we have white particles in our bath and drinking water due to an old hot water heater that the owner never and wouldn't change out. We have had bad experiences since we got hear. They have a process that takes too long for us to wait around to get paper and our file to be sent back to Mississippi so I am leaving this dump of a house and Bringing my family back home to Biloxi MS. Where we belong.
All I ask is for emergency assistance for utility deposits when we make it back home because my wife is getting sicker and needs her doctor back in Mississippi because we have been through several of doctors and they can't seem to get my wife good care like the one she had in Mississippi. Also my step son is mentally retorted and need his proper care also.
I love my family and we leaving this place and we will need immediate housing because we will be homeless when we get back to Biloxi, MS.
