  1. I am a single mother NOT getting child support. I work a full time job and a part time job to make ends meet. I went to Department of Human Services in Tulsa, OK to apply for LiHEAP for help with my utilities. I was told I make to much but if I was not working they would be able to help me with my utilities plus food stamps. I did not ask for food stamps. Just need help during the winter with my utilities.I can not take time off from work to stand in line at the salvation army for assistance; that’s if they have the funds to give. So much for a federal program helping people that DO WORK. And PSO payment extension plan is a joke. The reason people set up a payment plan is because they are having trouble. If you are ONE DAY LATE, sorry… your full amount or your power will be turned off. And they did!!!!

  2. Its so wrong they pso knocked ou many different tvs the wii vcr started fire and the dvd player when a ballast went out on a transforme shooting elec in reverse reverting energy r effecting not just our home our neighbors too.

On bottom of bill guess what Aep pso sponsors the org. THEY ASKED ME WHAT DID PSO SAY OXYMORAN TO FAIRNESS. Leave it to the Good ole Boy syndrome that keeps us in a fog for wash mine and itgeirs to keep them dirty ;you know those low income idiots we can push around ending result neighbor has receivef 3000.+ me 0 not one cent off our bilo. The folly of beleiving right and whats is wrong So if this happens to you hopefully you get a pso rep in your house and get that claim form dont let them go.

  3. I am on disability and have COPD which requires oxygen provided by an electric home concentrator. I have a total electric home and my bill runs over $400. a month. I live on 1703.00 a month and my mortgage payment is 1000.00 a month. I have tried to discuss my difficulty in making such high electric payments with PSO several times, my electricity has been shut off a couple of times because I couldn’t pay my bill. This was done without regard to my need for oxygen to maintain my life. With this kind of “help” I can die. Their help is nonexistent.

    • I understand your frustration. My daughter has a lung condition and needs medical equipment for her. Even had medical certificates on her account. Lost $20,000 a year in December due to a layoff. Our electric has been off 4 days and I don’t see any end in sight. I’ve tried everywhere to get assistance and none available. Credits too bad to get loans. I’m not trying to skirt my bill just a little short term assistance is all my family is asking.
