You should have called your landlord ahead of time...  It's not their fault your only income has not came in yet.  But 9 times outta 10 most places are willing to work with you if they are made aware of the situation in a timely manner.  Maybe call tomorrow??

 You don't have a grace period? I had 7 days after the first when I rented. All you can do is explain the situation to your landlord.

Talk to the landlord.

Set you SS up on direct deposit.

 Pay the bill.  That's what you can do about it.

If you want to live for free, move to a shelter.

You can speak with the landlord about your financial situation but it is at their discretion to charge the late fee or not.

 Did you read the post? Where did she say she doesn't want to pay rent????

Op, just talk to your landlord and explain the situation. They may waive the fee if this is the first time you are late.

 Well she didnt pay it so apparently it's not a big priority.

All checks from the social security administration must either be direct deposited or put on their debit card starting March 1st which is probably why you didn't receive it. The only exception is if you were born before May 1st 1921.
