Yes, It’s True. The Government Has a Free Cell Phone Program for People in Need.
To many people struggling to make ends meet in today’s tough economy, a free cell phone with 250 free minutes per month can make a huge deal in their life.
Everyone needs to be able to connect with jobs, emergency services and family. To ensure that all Americans have the opportunities and security that a telephone provides, the government set up a program called Lifeline in 1985. In 2005 this program was extended to include wireless cell phones. The funding of this program comes from the Universal Service Fund fee that is levied on all cell phones.
If you already receive certain government benefits, you might automatically qualify. If you aren’t on any government programs, you might be able to qualify if your income is low enough.
It’s tough to make ends meet in todays tight economy. Getting a free cell phone can be just the little bit of help that can make a huge difference in a struggling person’s life.
The mission of this site is to help as many people as possible to get the benefits that they qualify for.
The Lifeline Program isn’t some sort of scam. It didn’t just start under Obama so calling them “Obama phones” isn’t really accurate. This is a legitimate program that can really help people in need. There have been stories in the news showing how some are taking advantage of the system by getting more than one phone and this is giving the program a bad stigma. Just be aware that because of this bad publicity, they are putting special systems in place in order to cut down on the fraud that some are committing.
