Are you lost without your cell phone? Do you feel disconnected without it? The Federal Government realizes that one of the keys to safety is communication and your cell phone could be the difference between life and death.
That’s why the government supports various programs that provide a free cell phone and free air time each month to qualifying consumers. Absolutely no cost, requires no contracts or credit checks and offers modern day calling features such as voicemail, call waiting, text messaging, carry-over minutes, free 411, and international calling to 60 countries at no additional cost.
SafeLink is one of those programs that offer free service.
Eligibility for the program varies slightly per state zip code, but is mainly determined by two qualifiers:
1. Participation in one of the following programs:
• Federal Public Housing Assistance / Section 8
• Food Stamps
• Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP)
• Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
• National School Lunch (free program only)
• Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)
2. Total household income as described below:
Persons in Family or Household
|Annual Income||Monthly Income|
*For each additional person, add $4,860 $405
To apply, just visit www.SafeLink.com and enter your zip code. Then, enter your special promo code, BEEHIVE, for faster delivery of your phone. Finally, just provide some basic information, and if your state requires it, proof of eligibility and submit your application. That’s it! Once you’re approved, you will have your free cell phone in three to five days.
