I heard about ACNT from a co-worker and inquired with HR about it and per HR an associate can receive assistance of up to $1500 total only, once you hit the maximum $1500 limit the fund will not provide any further assistance and the program will not provide any further assistance for the duration of employment. I needed help with my car payment and I was told they will provide me the assistance and when I turned in the invoice I was told I would receive the check within 5 days. But the next day I was informed that they can't help me because I have been there less than one year. Does anyone know if they make exceptions for an associate who's been there less than one year but is in dyer need of assistance?

I applied back in September when I was getting evicted from my house. I have turned in paperwork after paperwork and still have not received any word on whether or not they are gonna help. My landlord was understanding at first and now I'm in danger of being homeless right before the holidays. It says it is for associates in critical need of help and I think I've more than qualified for it and still received nothing. How much more critical does it need to be?? How long do I need to wait before hearing anything?

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
