Unemployment versus Debt
(Pelham, NY, USA)
I've been unemployed since Feb 2008. I've been staying afloat collecting unemployment and freelance. I've made huge payments towards my credit card due to a small inheritance. With the new laws, I'm right back where I started. I also have school debt and though I'm making all my payments each month is so stressful. I don't know if or how much money I might be getting monthly. Sometimes I haven't gotten paid for 2 months. Any suggestions as to how to deal with Credit Card first, that's the one killing me!! More accurately... do I tell them about my unemployment status, does this hurt me?
