How do you qualify for Safelink Wireless in Washington?
There are two methods to qualify for a free government cell phone. You need only meet the conditions of one of the two tests. You do not need to meet both.
Method #1: Income Test
Is your total household income at or below 135% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines?
|Size of Family||Annual Income|
|For each Additional Person, Add||$5,157|
If you meet the income eligibility requirements above, you may qualify for Safelink Wireless is Washington. If qualify for service under the income test, you will likely need to provide documentation proving that your household earns below the guidelines above.
Even if you are living at a higher income level than this threshold, you may still qualify for Safelink if you meet the second test—the qualifying program test.
Method #2: Qualifying Program Test
Are you participating in any of the following public aid programs?
- Community Options program Entry System (COPES)
- Disability Lifeline (Previously General Assistance)
- DSHS Chore Service
- Medical Assistance (including Medicare cost sharing program)
- Refugee Assistance
- State Family Assistance (SFA)
- Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program SNAP (Food Stamps)
- Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
- Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF)
If you are, you should be eligible for a free government cell phone provided by Safelink Wireless. This is true, again, even if you did not meet the income test. The programs included in this list change now and again, so if you do not currently meet either test, make sure you check back, as you may qualify at a future time.
If you met either of the tests above, you most likely qualify for a free government cell phone. There are two more requirements, though. You need to have a valid U.S. street address in order to receive a cell phone through this program. Unfortunately at this point in time, Lifeline Assistance is not available to customers with only a P.O. Box. Are you homeless? If so, you can contact Safelink Wireless and see whether the company has any suggestions for you that might help you navigate around this residency requirement and still qualify for Lifeline Assistance.
The other requirement concerns your household. Only one free government cell phone is allowed per household, which means you can only qualify if nobody else in your household is currently a subscriber to the program (via Safelink or another provider). If someone else already has applied or is receiving Lifeline, you cannot. If nobody else in your household has applied, you should qualify without a problem. On Safelink Wireless’ website, you can download the application for your free government cell phone. Fill it out and attach verification documents that prove you either meet the income test or the qualifying program participation test. You may submit it electronically or send it via fax or snail mail.
