The Reachout Wireless application is free and applicants do not need to pay anything when submitting their details. This is a government assisted phone service, and it is mandatory for successful applicants to recertify every year.
The application involves providing basic information such as name, address, birth date and phone numbers. Applicants can either apply under government or income program eligibility. Those applying under the government must provide verification while those applying under income eligibility provide proof of income. Applicants must ensure that there is no other person in their household who has a Lifeline Assistance phone. Failure to adhere to this rule can lead to legal penalties.
