Are You Eligible For The Safelink Wireless Government Program?
SafeLink Wireless is a program supported by the government that offers a free mobile phone and minutes each month for income-eligible people. SafeLink Wireless, Lifeline service, which have benefits such as FREE cellular service, a FREE mobile phone, and FREE air time, can be obtained by getting enrolled in the program.
Lifeline Assistance is part of that program which was created by the government to provide discounted or free telephone service to the consumers who cannot afford to buy or obtain cell phone due to their economical conditions. SafeLink Wireless offered a Lifeline Service to help those people to get this beneficial facility. You can receive FREE cellular service, a FREE cell phone, and FREE Minutes every month, through their Lifeline Service. SafeLink Wireless Service does not cost anything to any of its user - It doesn't have any contracts, nor recurring fees or any monthly charges. If you have not used any minutes provided in one month then these will roll-over in the next month. All basic value added services including caller ID, call waiting and voicemail are included with the package and are free of cost. If you would like to use some additional minutes, you have the opportunity to buy TracFone Airtime Cards through your local TracFone retailer: Walmart, Family Dollar, etc. SafeLink Airtime Cards should be available soon. The exact numbers of benefits i.e. the number of free Minutes per month depends upon the state you live.
How to Qualify for a free Safelink Wireless mobile phone? Again here the procedure to be eligible for Lifeline Service is dependent on the State you live in. In general, you may qualify if:
1. You already chip in, in other State or Federal assistance program for instance Federal Public Housing Assistance, Food Stamps and Medicaid. OR
2. Your entire family income is at or below 135 percent of the poverty guidelines. This poverty level is defined by Federal Government or your local state. AND
3. Nobody in your family currently benefits from the Lifeline program through another cell phone company.
4. You must have a valid Postal Address in United States. This address will be used for your package shipment. Beware, as P.O. Boxes are not accepted anymore. Once you meet the the principles mentioned above you will also be required to provide an evidence of your enrollement in an assistance program, or a proof of your level of income.
You do not ever require signing any contract with SafeLink Wireless for the services. When you will receive your SafeLink Wireless handset, it will be pre-activated for one year of service, and the number of minutes applied will be for the first month will also be included. During the first three days of the month the applied number of free minutes for each month will be automatically transferred to your account until you will keep your phone operating.
If you get selected for the annual verification audit required by the FCC and administered by USAC at random, then you will have to provide evidentiary proof of program participation and evidence of income if your eligibility is through the income based on the state's Federal Poverty Guideline table. You will also receive a package with instructions will through mail by SafeLink Wireless and you must comply with the instructions. If you will fail to comply then it will cause the service cancellation from the Lifeline program benefit.
