When you post a message, and this applies to everyone, always post your state or more details. There is no program that deals with all issues. What state do you live in? While I wait for that, try the salvation army, community action agency, LIHEAP, and just call your utility company.

Water, medical bills and electric aid needed

Post by EdM » Sun Aug 22, 2010 1:27 am

I am on social security disability and have no income other then what is given to me by social security. I had major surgery and have water, electric and medical bills that I cannot pay,the water and electric companies want to shut off my utilities and when my wife spoke to them they said they don't care. The collections keep calling me everyday at least 5 or 6 times throughout the day and night what can I do or can I receive any assistance? I even explained to the Hospital that I had no insurance and the doctors but they still keep trying to contact me. from New Jersey any help would be appreciated.

New Jersey has several options and resources for energy bills help. For help with the other bills, such as medical, hospital, and credit card debts try the main site of needhelppayingbills.com
Thank you for listing your state, but it is also nice to have your utility company too.
Some programs include New Jersey SHARES (Statewide Heating Assistance and Referral for Energy Services), which provide temporary help in paying heating and energy bills 1-866-657-4273). Another option is New Jersey Natural Gas, the Gift of Warmth program provides help. The phone numbers vary by County, but just dial 732-828-4541 to learn more.

Gas and electric power back on

Post by weinbergm95 » Fri Sep 24, 2010 8:29 am

Hi. I have three children under the age of 5 living in my home with me and I have recently lost my job and have had my power shut off. I am in the process of finding other employment, but need help getting my power back on from my utility company. The gas service is about to go next as behind on those bills too. Is there any aids for this in the state of North Carolina that could please help me

Was it the Charlotte, Mecklenburg County area of North Carolina? Here is a listing of agencies to turn to. Many will have a counselor who can direct you and guide you on ways to get your power service turn back on, and maybe help keep you current with your energy bills and paying them.

Mesquite is in Dallas County Texas. Some different places to try in Mesquite include Catholic Charities (phone number (214) 826-8330), The Dallas County Bethlehem Foundation (phone number (214) 371-3407), and many others. There are numerous charities and non-profits in the area that provide energy bill help and other forms of cash assistance to people in need of help.

I really need more info before can direct you to programs. Without having that, try LIHEAP, weatherization, or other conservation programs and options.

To Whom it may Concern,

I have a old debt on my consumers energy bill from a previous address which is in shut off notice as of February 27, 2011. I have contacted consumers, DHS- have denied letter, tried local agencies for help and they aren't able to either help with the gas and light bill. My current residence address is ok but consumers put us in shut off due to old bill. If you are able to help me or find somebody who can please help. I also have an unpaid water bill. I have 2 children ages 10 & 8 in my home. It's winter.

DHS is in Michigan, right?
If so, here is information on Michigan grants and financial programs for energy bills
http://needhelppayingbills.com/html/mic ... _util.html
You do have access to shut off and disconnection programs, and many types of financial assistance and advice that you can use. While they may not be able to help with paying the water bill, at least your energy you have some options on.

Summerville South Carolina
Dorchester County

I am in a desperate need of assistance with my electric bill. My husband was ordered
by the courts to move out because he was given a Criminal Domestic Violence Charge.
I have a severly autistic daughter and when he was ordered out by the courts, he had
all of the bills forwarded to his new address and refuses to transfer ANY of the
bills to my name. SCE&G refuses to waiver any fees because I am not on the bill.
They are stating that there will be a 650.oo deposit in order to start service under
my name. I am on a fixed income and I am not able to pay the back electric bills and
the deposit they are requiring. Please I am in need of help in any areas you can
find suitable. Every bill has not been paid including-sewer, water and trash
pickup.Thank you! I hope to hear from you soon.
