To apply for SafeLink Wireless Service, visit SafeLink's website and enter a ZIP code to determine which application options are available in the specific area where the recipient lives. Generally, this pulls up an application that can be filled out and submitted to SafeLink online. Alternatively, applicants can download and print a blank application that is mailed back to SafeLink.
The application asks for personal contact information of the applicant, including name, address and email information and the last four digits of the applicant's Social Security number. A promo code may also be entered if desired. Moving between fields on the application requires solving a CAPTCHA.
After submitting address information, a screen appears that asks information to determine the applicant's eligibility for assistance. To qualify, applicants must participate in a qualifying program. Programs include Medicaid, Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program, Supplemental Security Income, Section 8, Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program, Temporary Assistance to Needy Families, National School Lunch Program and other state-based assistance programs.
The final part of the application asks for proof of participation in a qualifying program and details how the applicant can provide proof. Once the application is complete, the applicant submits it along with the required program participation proof. If approved, the phone is mailed to the applicant.
