Individuals who are experiencing financial difficulty and count on Supplemental Security Income to survive often need additional resources in order to make ends meet. A new program in Missouri aims to help those who receive SSI, State Supplemental Disability Assistance, or a number of other low-income services, by providing those needy individuals with a free cell phone and a limited number of free minutes of cell service.

According to PR Newswire, TracFone Wireless, Inc. is offering qualifying Missouri residents a free wireless cell phone and 68 free minutes of talk time every month. If unused, the minutes will roll over into the next month. Perhaps most important, the phones will have unrestricted access to 911.

Recipients are expected to demonstrate that they are eligible for this plan, typically with income statements or proof of enrollment in a program that requires proof of little to no income. Qualifying programs include:

SSI

State Supplemental Disability Assistance

Veteran Administration Disability Benefits

Low Income Home Energy Assistance

National School Lunch Program

Section 8 housing

Medicaid

If you live in Missouri and have experienced delays in receiving your SSI benefits, contact a advocate today so that you don't miss out on qualifying for this free service.

If you, or your loved one, are suffering from a severe physical or mental disability, you should contact a Social Security Disability advocate immediately to learn about your rights and determine eligibility. The process of securing Social Security Disability Insurance benefits and/or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) can be difficult and overwhelming. Don't go it alone! The disability advocates at LaVan & Neidenberg®, located in Ft. Lauderdale, FL understand the inner workings of the Social Security Administration and will help you navigate the system. Call us today for a FREE consultation - 1-888-234-5758.
