What Programs allow Veterans to receive a Free phone?
Lifeline and ACP
The Lifeline Program, which is run by the FCC, provides discount on service to those who fulfill certain income or eligibility criteria. This discount, if applied through Easy Wireless, provides free phone service, and you will receive a free phone!
Many veterans may qualify for this program, by simply showing proof of eligibility. This proof can be an award letter that shows you receive disability through the VA, which may qualify you through the low income program, or a VA letter that shows you receive a Veteran’s Pension or Survivor’s Pension, which will qualify you through the VPSP program.
While The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is a program that provides price breaks on monthly broadband services and certain connected devices. If a Veteran combines these two programs together, they can get a Free Cell Phone with Unlimited, Talk, Text, and Data!
