Update Feb 6, 2020: The Assurance Wireless website still functions, but please note that the Virgin Mobile USA service has been discontinued. You may still visit Assurance Wireless to see if you or a loved one qualifies for a free smartphone with free service.
Following up on my previous post regarding cellphone service, I’ve found that Virgin Mobile (in conjunction with Sprint) offers mobile phone service to low-income seniors.
If you qualify, you can get a phone and service for free. In the literature that I received in the mail, the income qualification guidelines included a max income of $16,755 for a one person household or $22, 695 for a two person household. You may also qualify if you participate in Medicaid, SSI, SNAP, or receive housing assistance. Other programs are noted, also.
