Cassie G (Florida):
I was laid off in October of 2018 without any severance. I did not secure a full time job until December and at 40k less than my previous position. By then I was already behind. St. Timothy did help last month however, with the late fees, electric, water due and groceries I used what I had put to the side for those bills. I paid the landlord $580 on 2/3 and promised to pay the difference of $670 (rent is $1250) on Friday 2/8 and the late fee of $125 the following pay day. Doing this will create the same situation for March because I should be saving $625 from the 2/8 pay period to pay March rent. I have not been able to catch up since the layoff and face 3 day notices and $125 late fees monthly which I can not afford. I have asked they waive the late fee for a month however the landlord will not.
If I am able to catch up, I make enough at my job to pay the rent, electric and water monthly. I took and passed the life insurance exam last week and will be working with a group specializing in final expense insurance. I expect with my full time job and insurance sales I will be able to maintain.
