During these tough economic times, it can be incredibly difficult for the disabled to find and maintain a steady job. Many depend on Supplemental Social Income (SSI) to pay their monthly bills.
For many people with disabilities, having a cell phone is an absolute must-have device so that they can call the emergency medical services if necessary and stay in touch with their doctors, family and friends for assistance. However, the cost of cell phone service is is steadily increasing and as a result, many disabled people simply cannot afford to have a cell phone.
The government-supported Lifeline program helps the disabled and other people that are in need of a cell phone.
Lifeline provides a FREE government cell phone with 250 FREE minutes each month to the disabled and other people in need. With Lifeline, disabled people in need can access 911 emergency services, contacting doctors and making appointments, stay in touch with family and friends and be connected for job opportunities. Talk time can be increased by purchasing more minutes for a very small cost.
You can get your FREE cell phone with 250 FREE monthly minutes if you participate in a government assistance program or meet your state’s low income requirements. Government assistance programs that qualify you for Lifeline include:
