Are you finding it challenging to afford a smartphone? If you’re currently on a low income, you may be receiving help from one or more government assistance programs. Doing so can make you eligible to receive a free smartphone through the Lifeline phone service that’s offered through the government. It makes obtaining a cell phone highly affordable if you’re already finding it challenging to make ends meet each month.
Obtaining a Free Phone Through the Government
Did you know you can obtain a free smartphone via the federal government by utilizing their Lifeline phone service? Taking this action requires you to already be participating in one or more of these government programs:
- Bureau of Indian Affairs General Assistance
- Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations
- Supplement Security Income (SSI)
- Veterans Pension and Survivors Benefit Program
- Tribally Administered Temporary Assistance for Needy Families TANF
Receiving Talk and Text Service Affordably
You can also receive text, talk and data service through the Emergency Broadband Benefits Program (EBB Program) if you’re eligible for Lifeline. Combining these two services can make communicating with others highly affordable and allow you to have enough funds for food and shelter. You should have peace of mind once you obtain your smartphone and the services provided by the EBB Program as it can quickly provide you with access to other individuals through text and talk.
