Boston, MA: The Assurance Wireless program is absolutely 100% subsidized-no credit checks, deposits, service or activation fees, no contracts! Assurance Wireless offers eligible low income customers a subsidized cellular phone and 250 subsidized local plus nationwide long distance voice minutes a month. Users can pay more to increase their minutes and/or get additional features. To qualify simply submit an application and meet the requirements.
Eligibility is available to residents in Alabama, Arkansas, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, North Carolina, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, or Wisconsin. With Assurance Wireless constantly expanding this program to new states checking updated program availability is encouraged.
Eligibility varies somewhat from state to state but in most states, qualification is based on government program-based criteria and income-based criteria. With Government Program Based Eligibility you may qualify if you are enrolled in a government assistance program. Again this varies by state. Where providing supporting documentation of enrolment in a government assistance program isn't necessary you will have to swear under penalty of perjury of your enrolment in a government assistance program. Failure to be entirely honest on your application may mean facing civil and criminal charges.
While Income Based Program Eligibility allows states to establish their own income most use 135% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines. Other requirements are only one Lifeline wireless or land line account per household, you must swear you are not currently enrolled in any other Lifeline Assistance program because if you are you may face fines and even jail time for defrauding the Lifeline program and the address you provide for your phone service must be your place of residence. If you are homeless call 1-888-898-4888. Ask what steps an applicant with no home address must take to apply. It may be possible to use a shelter's address or an aid agencies' mailing address.
Phone service is given only in the name of the qualified customer and is non-transferable. All applications must be completely filled out, printed, and mailed or faxed.
