ROCKVILLE, MD, February 08, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Cintex Wireless is a proud supporter of the federal Lifeline program. Through this program, Cintex Wireless is able to provide cell phone service at very discounted costs or even free, depending on the financial need of the individual at hand. This program from Cintex Wireless is designed to assist low-income individuals who need access to reliable communication methods.
The Reagan Administration put the Lifeline program into place. It was further strengthened and enhanced in 1996, and passed on a broad bipartisan basis. For a long time, it has been essential for individuals to have access to means of communication. In the modern day, not having access to a cell phone can negatively impact the well being of individuals. It can be very difficult for people to apply for jobs or contact loved ones in times of need without the assistance of a cell phone.
"I couldn't be more pleased with the assistance I've gotten through the federal Lifeline program and the assistance through Cintex Wireless
," says an individual who has benefited from this program. "With the help of Cintex Wireless, I am able to more easily communicate with my family. It also assisted me in finding employment because it made it much easier for potential employers to contact me."
The government provides the Universal Service Fund to provide free airtime minutes for individuals who are eligible for this program. Cintex Wireless pays for the handset and the cost of promoting the program. Cintex Wireless is dedicated to ensuring that people all throughout the United States have access to reliable communication methods.
"The Lifeline program is very important to us," says a representative from Cintex Wireless. "As a responsible telecommunications company, Cintex Wireless
believes it is our duty to promote this program and let people know that even when times are tough, they still have access to cell phone use."
Not all Americans are eligible for the Lifeline program, and the requirements vary from state to state. However, individuals who are currently on one of the following programs: Food Stamps, Medicaid, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), National Free School Lunch, or Federal Housing/Section 8 Assistance, may be eligible to receive a phone from Cintex Wireless
. It is also possible that even individuals who are not on one of these programs may be eligible if their household gross monthly income is low enough. The exact benefits through the Lifeline program that individuals may receive differ from case to case.
"I work full time and I also need to take care of my kids," says another recipient of the Lifeline program. "Having access to a cell phone is important to me so I can help coordinate where my kids go after school and also figure out where they are. Prior to having access to the Lifeline program, I spent a lot of time worrying about the safety of my children. Now, I can be assured of where they are and what they're doing thanks to Cintex Wireless."
