Assurance Wireless Service

If you've ever wondered if there was a program which provided a free cell phone for seniors, you don't have to wonder anymore because there is a program that is very easy to apply to and get accepted in.

 Let's face it, mobile phone service can be expensive, at the time of this publication, the average monthly wireless phone bill was hovering just around $50. And having a wireless phone even for a senior is very important for both safety and convenience.

 Both Seniors and the elderly are easily able to carry wireless phones with them and if ever they needed access to a phone quickly for an emergency, they'd have it on them. A wired phone just doesn't offer this same peace of mind. Moreover, to a senior on medicaid, social security or on a limited pension, a cell phone bill can put a serious dent in a senior's budget. Even for those caring for elderly or senior parents, providing money for monthly cell phone bills can be cost prohibitive as well. But luckily there are options for seniors to get a cell phone for free.

 There is an exceptionally great program which has the best free cell phones for those 55 and over and anyone else with a low income. The best wireless phone program for seniors is the Assurance Cellphone Program. With the Assurance Lifeline Program, a senior can get up to 250 free monthly minutes for free. All you have to do is apply online for assurance wireless phones to see if you or the senior in your life qualifies.

Here are the steps:

  1. Go to the Assurance Wireless – Apply Online.

  2. Enter in your zip code – By entering your zip code you will be taken to a qualification page which will make sure that your state is participating in the free cell phone for seniors program.

  3. Read the eligibility requirements. In most cases seniors who get Medicaid, SSI or food stamps can receive a free phone.

  4. Download the application or call Assurance Wireless' Toll Free Number.

  5. Provide the document to substantiate you are a low income senior.

  6. Wait for approval and your free cell phone.

What Is Included in the Assurance Wireless Service:

  •  A Free Wireless Phone
  • 250 Free Monthly Minutes
  • Voicemail
  • Free Calls to Customer Service
  • Ability to add additional minutes for $20. ($20 adds 1000 free minutes and 1000 text messages)

For those who are insterested in alternative free cell phone programs, there are also programs like Budget Mobile and Safelink as well to help seniors get free cell phones. Of course Assurance Wireless, I think is a better program because it's run on the Sprint Nationwide Network and the website is really very organized and their customer service is second to none.

As you can see a free cell phone for seniors is possible when you apply to programs like the Assurance Wireless Phones Program.

Thanks Deborah-Diane for reading, I'm going to get my mom one of these free phones for seniors. She's currently on my mobile plan. And though it's still pretty cheap, free is better than cheap. :)

This is a great service. There are also cheap cellphones for seniors available for those who do not qualify. You can get a phone for seniors for under $10 a month from Tracfone

Seniors don't want complicated functions in phone. They just want a phone easy to operate and must be user-friendly. These phones like by the seniors. Also they want expensive services on their cell phones. So these are the perfect phone for seniors.
