I had known about the Walmart Associates In Critical Need Fund and was afraid to inquire of it until the day finally came and I had to drop my pride and apply for the funds. I applied May 2017, which I am having financial difficulties paying rent weekly. Therefore, I summited the application alone with the correct paperwork and Store Manager statement and signature. From this day forward all I get in responding is "It's still in Process". It's soon to be August and this program has not assist me yet. I am a sales associate at store # 3812..

I have put in for acnt and have turned paperwork and more paperwork in that they asked for. I am behind on my rent for trying to save the money to get my car fixed which is going to cost me at least $2100. Now after some time they want more paperwork on why I am late on rent when I have told them why, etc. I know others in my store have gotten acnt for just saying they have an emergency and they got the money quick. I dont think it is right. I need my car but they dont care as long as I find a way to get to work. I'm also going to have to move on top of it all for being late on my rent for trying to save the $ so I can get my car fixed.

Its all bull if you ask me, i got flooded out in Louisiana due to the great flood we had in August, relocated to Texas where my job was transferred, but unfortunately I didn't start working until 3 weeks after i got here, Which put me behind on my rent, and utilities. Signed up for the critical care funds, and still have yet to hear anything from them. Not to mention i gave them my eviction notice, and electric bill disconnect notice, still nothing. I guess they help who they want

I have received help from the ACNT fund twice. The first time was when I was evicted because my landlord didn't want to bring our (rented) house up to code, and ACNT gave me a deposit for my new place. The second time was when I had lots of medical bills and paying for them made me late on rent & electricity.
I don't think the other reviewer got a clear understanding of the guidelines - it's pretty clearly stated that they can't help if your problems are because of lost Walmart hours.

I work for Walmart, my husband also worked for Walmart. My husband was terminated after getting hurt on the job. We have received no workers comp for him and I am the only one working. I pay for all of our families expenses and his medical care for his accident that occurred at work. We have six children, 5 of which are disabled and bills have gotten behind. Wal-Marts critical need program has done nothing for my family. Not one electric bill, water bill, no help at all. I think they have this program, deny everyone in an attempt to make the company look good.. really its a joke
