Q Link Wireless offers a free phone and 250 monthly minutes to
qualified Kentuckians under Federal Lifeline Assistance Program

DANIA, Fla., Dec. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Nearly 350,000 low-income Kentuckians could have more money and improved quality of life by applying with Q Link Wireless to receive a free phone with free minutes through a program administered by the Federal Communications Commission.

The number of eligible Bluegrass State residents could be greater, says Issa Asad, CEO of Q Link Wireless.  The company is a national provider of the Federal Lifeline Assistance Program, which helps Americans receiving federal assistance receive quality cell phone service.

"Many underserved Kentucky residents who need cell phones for daily living can have a brighter new year," said Asad.  "We have a full-featured, no-cost program that allows low income families to gain access to a cell phone."

A federal government study shows that only 44 percent of eligible Kentuckians have applied for the Lifeline program.  "That figure jumps above 50 percent if you include people who qualify based on income," said Asad.

Q Link Wireless began serving low-income, eligible Kentuckians in March 2013. It offers a free phone with 250 monthly minutes and packs the service with local and long-distance calls, voicemail, and extras usually found on expensive plans, such as caller ID, call waiting and free roaming.

"Providing phones at no cost saves budget-conscious families hundreds of dollars," says Asad, whose company covers most counties in the state.

Asad says that Kentucky residents participating in federal programs such as Food Stamps (SNAP), Medicaid, Federal Public Housing Assistance (Section 8) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) typically qualify.

They can also qualify based on income criteria.  For example, a family of four in Kentucky with an annual income of up to $32,198 is eligible for Lifeline and Q Link Wireless service.

"At a time when people are sharing with others, it makes sense to switch to an FCC-compliant plan like ours," says Asad.  "A family can save well over $1,000 a year. That figure could go up $200 or more when you add the free phone."

State residents can sign up online with Q Link Wireless. Applicants submit proof of eligibility and the company performs a detailed verification and ensures the Lifeline one-per-household rule is enforced by checking every applicant against a national database.  For information on the Lifeline program, visit the FCC's website.
