I am low income and I get SNAP benefits from my county. Recently I learned that I can get a discount on phone service and my electric bill. I was excited about that option because it's summer and the bills get pretty high. I can't stand to be hot. I signed up for the program and I get about $10-$15 off my monthly bill. I am so grateful for the assistance. Do you have that type of discount with your electric service? If not, you should research it.
