Phone and internet bills

Post by Malden » Tue Aug 25, 2015 6:18 pm

I need phone bill help, rental assistance, electric and water bill assistance, auto payment, internet payment, and more. My husband moved out on Sunday and is refusing to pay July's car, water, and internet payments or any of August bills. I work for schools and do not have any income until 4 weeks after school begins. By then, my car will be repossessed and all utilities will be shut off. Not to mention, I’ll be 2 months behind on rent.
My kids have to have internet for school because all work is done on computers at their schools. So the phone bill is a priority. Please contact me ASAP at email above.

Well, no agency will really help with an existing phone bill. But you can do something with future costs. There is a government program known as Lifeline which is an option. It is for very low income families and those on benefits. It covers cellular units, and locate free government phone programs.

I found you listed on a website for help with the phone and internet bills.
I was laid off from a very good job in February 2015--the entire department was laid off. Since then, despite my many skills, I have had much interest in my resume.
But no jobs and I am sure it has to do with my age. I am 60.
I can't retire, but I can't get hired. I had a part-time job but was "tricked" (for want of a better word) into leaving that for a full time job. I and the guy they hired with me were sent home at lunch time. I believe this was age related. We were both perfectly competent, but our histories in the workplace and our energies are just different than 20-somethings.
Now I have no job, my unemployment has run out and I have no income and a very unhelpful family.
YWCA paid my rent for November and may also for December---during which time I hope to have a job.
But I have little money in the bank and have 3 months of internet bills and phone bills to pay. Without those things I can't work at all.
Can someone help me with a few hundred dollars to keep those connected? I would really appreciate it. There are a few things on the horizon--a job in January, but I have to get there.
Thank you!
Best Regards,

To Whom It May Concern,
Good day to you. I recently lost my job and I am running out of money to pay bills and the Florida Unemployment has advised me that it will be the end of the month before they make a decision on my case. I will not last that long. What I need help with is electric, car insurance, internet and phone bills, I am also behind on association fees for my home and they have sent a letter advising me that a lean will be put on home at end of month if not paid.
I have found food pantry in area to help with food. I am freaking out for I have no idea how to pay these bills. If cable gets shut off no big deal however I need that for the internet for I am in school and need internet. Please help!
Thank you for your time in this matter.
