Get Help with Light Bills From LoanNow – Easier, Faster, and Better

You’ve received a shut off notice from the electric company.   While the situation seems dire, there’s no need to panic.  Especially if you have some lead time before the shutoff date, there are resources available to help with light bill payments.  Even if your shut off date is just days away, you could receive the funds you need from LoanNow

Help with Light BillsContact the Utility

If you’ve maintained a good payment record in the past, your utility bill may provide help with light bill payment by allowing you to delay a payment or make a smaller payment before your due date.  If you can present a valid reason that you haven’t paid, such as a medical emergency, your request is more likely to be accepted. Make the call before your lights are shut off, because it’s much more difficult to restore service.  You might also have to pay a restoral fee, which would only add to your financial burden.

Seek Charity or Municipal Assistance

Having your electricity shut off during a heat wave can make the temperature inside your home or apartment dangerously unbearable.  If that’s the scenario you’re facing, your local municipality may be able to provide emergency help with light bill payments. Charity and nonprofit organizations may also be able to help.  Be forewarned that the demand for this type of assistance is very high, so only limited help may be available. You should also apply as far in advance of your shut off date as possible, because processing times can be very lengthy.

Plug Into a Neighbor’s Socket

If you cannot obtain help with light bill payments and your electricity is cut off, you can ask a neighbor for permission to run an extension cord to one of his or her sockets, at least for a few days. Don’t expect to be able to run anything but basic most basic essentials through this type of arrangement, due to the potential danger of electrical fire or electrocution – and because of the added expense for your neighbor. If you live in an apartment, you could run an extension cord to a common outlet in the hallway, and hope the property manager doesn’t find out about it.
