New Virgin Mobile customers can apply at the Assurance Wireless website to participate in the program, which is designed for people who meet federal or state eligibility requirements. Approved customers receive a free phone and a certain number of minutes for phone calls each month, notes the Assurance Wireless website.
People interested in participating in the Assurance Wireless program can visit its official website and enter their zip code to display eligibility information for their state. Applicants may qualify if they receive benefits from federal assistance programs such as Medicaid or the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, according to Assurance Wireless. New customers can click the "Apply now" link on the Assurance Wireless home page to apply for the program online.
There are six steps to the online application process. First, enter the address and zip code to determine whether the program is available at the specified address. If it is, enter information to determine eligibility for the program. Eligible applicants can continue by setting up an account, reviewing and signing an agreement and then providing proof of eligibility, which is proof of participation in a qualifying program, such as Medicaid, or proof of income. Existing Virgin Mobile customers can also apply for the Assurance Wireless program. Approved customers are switched to the program automatically, explains Assurance Wireless.
