This is very difficult for me to do: beg for money. However, I need to be able to feed my son and family.
Like many during this pandemic, we’ve fallen on difficult times. I was temporarily laid-off and able to survive with the unemployment assistance extra cash they gave for a while. Then I was called back into work and I amd now making less than the base unemployment pay not including the extra $600 because my job isn’t allowing overtime and health insurance takes a huge amount out of my 40 hour paycheck.
What’s worse is that my husband was then laid off and hasn’t been able to get unemployment as of yet. I just applied for temporary assistance but it’s going to take 2-weeks for our interview.
We’re two going on three months behind in rent. We’ve received a 2-week notice from the complex and I don’t know what else to do. We have no where else to go and I can’t have my son and our kittens on the street.
I didn’t get the stimulus payment because my son’s father illegally claimed our child on his tax return. Because of this I had to mail in my return and the IRS is so backed up that I’m still waiting on it to be processed.
While waiting for my return to be processed, I was able to speak with a representative who told me that because they didn’t scan my return into their system in May, I won’t even receive the stimulus payment until next year.
I am absolutely in dire need for help.
I’ve asked everyone I know and am unable to get any financial help.
My husband has an opportunity to start a lucrative 1099 job, however, he needs to obtain general liability and workers comp insurance which has a high downpayment that we obviously don’t have.
I don’t know where else to turn. I have reached out to community support programs and I’m still waiting for a response.
Please help us. Please.
