Free Telephone Service For Seniors

I recently got an email from the caregiver of a senior asking free telephone service for seniors.


Actually, it is surprising how many options are available.  Now, I have written about them previously so I am not going to just repeat myself here, but what I am going to do is use this blog post to direct you to this information.


First of all, let’s talk about home phone service for seniors.  And for that, we are talking about the LifeLine and Link Up programs


As far as cell phones go, just go to my free cell phones for seniors page for all of the information regarding the SafeLink and Assurance Wireless programs.


And always remember, if you have any questions, need any help or if you would like to add to add to the information here, feel free to fill in the box below or you can always contact me.

    My question is: My husband and myself get social security, but our income is very very small. We have money in the bank, which we are slowly withdrawing to live. Does having money in the bank, but receiving a very small income still allow you to apply for these services, such as; pharmaceutical.
    Thank you Fran

      It would depend upon the amount of money we are discussing and the state that you live in. As an example, Medicaid is a joint Federal/State program so there are actually 50 different sets of rules and regulations.

      Here is what I would do….

      1) Contact your local Office of the Aging. Ask to set a time with a benefits counselor and see what is available for you based upon your income.
      2) You mentioned pharmaceutical assistance. The benefit counselor may know of something else but in the meantime print out my prescription discount card at

      You will get a 50-85% discount off of the cost of your medications through the use of this card.

      And then I would follow-up on the information the benefit counselor gave you. If you have any further questions, feel free to contact me at
