* Unused data will not carry over from month to month. A month equals 30 days. Members who opt-in to the Affordable Connectivity Program qualify for unlimited talk, text, data, and 15 GB of Wireless Hotspot.

**Your Hotspot or BYOP service can only be activated where Service is available, offered, and supported by SafeLink. Services are provided at SafeLink's discretion. Compatible device required.

Any Medicaid-eligible individuals qualify for the program. If you are under the age of 18, a parent or legal guardian can apply on your behalf. Members living at the same household or address also qualify, as long as they do not share economic resources.

Visit to apply online (this is the fastest way to enroll) or call SafeLink Wireless at 877-631-2550.

Please allow approximately 1-2 weeks for your enrollment to be approved.

To keep your SafeLink benefits, members must make at least one phone call or send one text message each month.

If there is a technical issue with the phone, the SafeLink Wireless representative will attempt to troubleshoot the issue. If the issues persist, SafeLink Wireless will replace phones that are still under the 1-year warranty. A phone might not be replaced if it shows signs that it has not been taken care of.
