Far too many veterans and military families find themselves fighting a different battle here at home, one which threatens their financial independence. 

According to a recent report from the Labor Department[1], the unemployment rate for veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan is about 11 percent; this is about 2 points higher than the unemployment rate for the general population and one of every 10 veterans are living in poverty.  For veterans going through tough financial times, or struggling to find a job in several states, Assurance Wireless is a smart, free way to increase the odds of securing employment.

Meanwhile, with the challenges of frequent moves, deployment and a fixed income, many military families and younger military members find themselves surviving on a tight budget . Assurance Wireless enables military families to stay in touch and provides a valuable no-cost tool for staying connected to schools, care-givers and employers.

Mother’s Day

Aging parents and their grown children often live in different cities, making staying connected a challenge for sons and daughters who have busy schedules and families of their own. Additionally, moms and dads in retirement may have limited financial resources or tools like cell phones that could help them keep in touch.
