At Prestige NY, we do all we can to support our nation’s service members and their families. After all, they don’t just fight abroad – they do so in the U.S. as well. One of their biggest battles is for financial independence. For instance, veterans of Afghanistan and Iraq face an 11 percent unemployment rate.
As we at Prestige NY note, things may slowly be improving, but millions of motivated people continue to struggle with job loss and extended unemployment. Difficulty paying for cell phone plans only makes matters worse.
For instance, most hiring managers will not attempt to contact job candidates more than twice.
Although the economy is recovering, our country isn’t out of the woods just yet. As we at Prestige NY have sadly observed, there are still millions of people struggling financially. Consider the following:
- Over 3.7 million seniors over age 65 live below the federal poverty line.
- Nearly 4 million single-parent households live in poverty as well.
Here at Prestige NY, we’ve been working diligently to promote the Assurance Wireless program. It’s an amazing option for those who are eligible. If you receive welfare benefits, for instance, or your household income falls within certain guidelines, the program may make you eligible to receive a free cell phone.
