I was mugged and my entire ssdi money (whole purse was stolen) I need pro-rated first month rent and security to move into a disablity highrise for Nov 12th, every agency says because I'm not completely...
Your options are few.
I would first talk, beg and plea with management of the place you are moving into, see if there is some type of deal you can make with them. Having references to that you always pay rent and bills on time would greatly help, along with proof that you have steady income. The odds that this will work are very small, they hear stories all the time and are used to being taken advantage of. A deferment of the security deposit would give you that much less money to come up with.
If you have proper credit, you can take out a short loan. Be prepared to be asked for some type of collateral for the loan.
If your ssdi money was still in the form of a check, call the offices and explain what happened so they can put a stop on the check. If it was in cash format already, nothing you can do about it.
A lot of places might tell you that they can not help because you are not homeless YET. But if you can provide documentation that you are moving out, they will most of the time heed to your wishes. This can include any court papers for eviction, or whatever you have to prove you are going to be without housing.
A good place to plea your case is local churches, especially if you attend them. They often have funds set aside to help people in need.
If you have kids in school living with you, you can also call the school for help.
I also suggest calling The United Way, they offer help for this type of thing along with others.
Call your local Human Resource Services for the county/state you reside in. They also help for problems like these. They often have different names, but a quick call to the city should be able to give you a phone number.
Your police report is not going to hold any weight with your situation. There is no proof that it ever happened or that any money was taken, I am not calling you a liar, just letting you know how it will be viewed by the places you need the help from. It does add an emotional value to your problem, so it doesn't hurt to add it in. Just be prepared for them not to care about it.
You might want to look into selling some belongings that are replaceable. If you do wind up homeless, you will have to get rid of them regardless unless you can afford storage fees or know someone you can trust with them.
Most of all, do not get angry at anyone not able/willing to help...it will only close doors for you.
Hope that at least a tidbit of this info helps.
