Help paying off an old utility bill

by Mona
(Memphis, TN)

I have an old utility bill that I need to pay off asap. Are there any assistance programs that'll help me because as much as I want to get this bill paid off, I just don't want to file for bankruptcy and right now that seems like my only option.

Have you tried contacting your state public utility commission? If they don't have information about assistance plans another option is to try Legal Aid. They are often aware of community programs. We hope one of them can help!
