Disabled and need financial help to pay bills & feed 3 kids

hanenotenshi started this conversation

I've been out on disability since 9/06 and have gone through all my savings. I am now 2 months behind on paying the bills and have been selling personal belongings just to buy groceries for the kids.

Any financial assistance or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. My parents were helping with bills until my father passed away last month.

Please help.

Hey Wtfdoidonow,
Just wanted you to know my prayers are with you. My husband decided to call it quits after 12 years due to my medical issues and his wanting his freedom to fool around. I blame society and Divorce being to easy of an option.

Ask your family members and friends that you've helped first.

First

Go to your local government agencies or consulate and be aware that the American government no longer is the big brother bail out system. no don't wasting og time appealing to them they are very aware of the operation of mercenaries who have a need. we are tired of passing our citizens by to help someone else's citizens. we had to work through difficult times to become America. It takes a long time to build a government that help its own people and we waited through the tough times for it.

sounds ez to host a student but now days there are tons of issues with immigration and everything it emcompasses this can really backfire in the wrong direction.

Why? I took in a student and it was hell getting him to go back to his country. He got more benefits than me and I'm a black american female with over 17 years military service. And twenty seven years total workforce. He was very ungrateful and had no interest in me or my family well being. He was only concerned about getting the greencard and resurrecting his family so that they could come over and YEP!!! get our jobs we worked for.

NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! we the american people need to stick together and forget that idea it has weakened our economy. I stayed two years in a third world country and was treated like dirt because of my status as an black american from the transatlantic slave trade. Forgot about it. It doesn't work. Serious no go!!!

can you work at all. according to my recent findings SSI allows some work incom up to $800 gross a month and still receive benefits. I know its a mess. I worked twenty seven years non-stop 17 of in military. And fighting VA like hell.

SSDI is nice compared to those guys. Apply for TANF food stamps immediately until you work a part time job like walmart who hires quickly.

TANF is a program at the department of social services that can help immediately with your concerns for food, and household expenses. You do have to qualify so start there.

ClownManAZ, have you ever thought of hosting an international student? The way it has been explained to me, you supply a bedroom and 2 meals, and the student pays you each month ($500 / $600 I've heard). You help them improve their English language skills and help them experience American culture. Maybe worth Googling?

Manny, I know how you feel. I had GBS too. It's something I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy. I was on a respirator for months. Now I can't work either. At least I can walk with crutches but it's still frustrating.

In this economy, even if you can get financial aid for school, I wouldn't count on that helping. I don't mean to be a downer, but this economy sucks.
