The specifics of the Safelink Wireless program
SafeLink Wireless gives you the choice of enjoying free cell service on your own phone. Or you can apply to receive a new cell phone AND free service.
Free smartphone, up to 1000 minutes, unlimited texts, PLUS 2GB data.
Are you eligible for a new Safelink Wireless phone number? Be aware that guidelines vary by state but you’ll probably qualify if you participate in a public assistance program such as any of the following:
Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (Food Stamps or SNAP)
Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
Federal Public Housing Assistance (Section 8)
Veterans Pension and Survivor’s Benefit.
Bureau of Indian Affairs General Assistance (BIA)
Tribally Administered Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (Tribal TANF)
Tribal Head Start (only those households meeting its income qualifying standard)
Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR)
If you don’t receive any of these public assistance benefits, you may also qualify if your total household gross monthly income is low enough.
