Government Rumored âFree Cell Phone Serviceâ Proves True
Recently, advertisements have been popping up that promote free cell phone plans provided by the government. While on first glance, these ads seem too good to be true, it turns out they arenât!
Using a FederalÂ program called the Lifeline Assistance Programâor just âLifelineââcertified wireless providers are able to give qualifying customers FREE cell phones withÂ FREE monthly minutes!
Hereâs how. Back in the 1980s, people in rural areas werenât always able to afford the high cost of landlines needed to call 911 for emergencies. So, the government started Lifeline to ensure all Americans had access to phone service to reach family, work or 911 emergency services.
Fast-forward 30 years. Today, more and more households use cell phones instead of landlines, so theÂ LifelineÂ program was changed to include wireless service. Enter licensed providers like Q Link Wireless, who offer qualified consumers free cell phones and free monthly service through the Lifeline Assistance program.
So, letâs knock out a few myths about the Lifeline Assistance Program:
- Myth: Lifeline phones are âObama phonesâ.
Reality: The Lifeline Assistance Program was around long before Obama was President in fact it was started in the 1980âs during the Regan Administration.
- Myth: The Government and Taxpayers pay for the actual phone.
Reality: No taxes are used to fund the cost of the phone. Companies like Q Link Wireless subsidize the cost of the actual phone themselves.
- Myth: Lifeline adds to the federal deficit.
Reality: Lifeline actually helps the economy by helping unemployed Americans contact potential employers about job opportunities. This allows Americans to become more independent, reducing their need for federal assistance.
Having access to a phone for emergencies is necessary, but since the cost of cell phone service is typically so high, the Lifeline Assistance Program is a fantastic resource for low-income families who might struggle to pay high monthly cell phone bills.
Providers of this service donât require a contract, thereâs no monthly bill, and they donât even run credit check to get approved. You only need to currently participate in another government program like Food Stamps (SNAP), Medicaid, SSI, Section 8, and most other govât assistanceÂ programs.
