Does anyone know of any other agency besides the DHHR, Salvation Army and mountain mission that helps with AEP terminations? I'm in no way a bum, I am employed but due to a disability I have been off work for a few months. I will soon be able to return to my job, however, I have been able to make arrangements with all other utility companies except AEP due to a previous default on a arrangement. Even though I have children in my home. The agencies I mentioned apparently only help those who are not willing to work at all and live off the system. My electric is due to be terminated Friday, I have never been in this position and wanted to know if someone could point me in the right direction. Thank you in advance.

go down and pay something on your electic bill. they cant shut it off if you paid something on your bill...and if they try to still do it call your utility commission!

They said they were working but had a disability that they had to take time off of work to deal with. Why would you be so rude?

Yes they can cut you off if you even pay some of it, the only way they won't is if you have never had an extension or payment plan in the past year... go to dhhr for emergency leap if you didn't receive regular leap they will pay your whole disconnect up to 500$ there is nothing wrong with getting help when u need it.

How much is your electric bill?

I'd much rather see the low income working poor get help than people who never worked a day in their life and get disability SSI, HUD, food stamps - the works. And if they have children under five years old - they get a check for them from DHHR too.

Now people that have worked and are off due to a disability. Some employers don't provide sick leave pay to the employees - NO WORK, NO PAY - and if it's a very short term injury, they are not qualified for SS. BUT if they have no money saved at all and a month with no income,, THEN I thought for that one month, the person could get food stamps - and if have a termination on electric-get most of it paid? But you can't have any assets except a house you live in and a car you drive. If any thing else in your name, you disqualify from even that help??? Did you get medicaid help for medical or have an insurance plan? Generally if you get one of the services, you qualify for the other. IF THEY SHUT IT OFF - put other utilitis you have "on vacation for low monies due) and go to a shelter until you have worked enough to pay the electric bill off and probably to give a deposit to have it turned back on.

It's tough eletric costs are rising and more and more people don't have gas because it got so high.

I got it taken care of a good friend helped out, but I will forever be sick everytime I look at my paystub and they have taken taxes to help the ones who can do for themselves but much rather we take care of them. The system needs a major overhaul!

That is awful to say to someone I'm in the same situation and I have a good job I have worked at for over 7 years but I was in a very bad car accident and I too fall behind on my electric bill and can not get it paid. They are about to shut it off too unless I come up with the full amount that is past due. I was trying to pay on it but I have been off work for 6 going on 7 months and I just couldn't do it. I have two kids one of which is disabled and its very hard trying to keep everything paid. Some people do work and have worked their butts off all their lives like me but something happens and they get in a tough spot where they need help but they can not get it unless they are jobless and living off the system. People like me and the other person above that have just fall on hard times can't get help. It's NOT right and God will take care of people like you who are so heartless and to make a comment like that is sickening. A will come that you will need help and you will see what its like. That's what's wrong with the world today, people are so quick to judge and people don't care about others and give a hand when others are in need of help.
