Assurance Wireless South Carolina
South Carolina has had a strong economic recovery. It has experienced several consecutive months of strong job growth, dropping the unemployment rate almost a full 2 percentage points. This kind of growth is sorely needed in a state where 18% of the residents of the state are living at the poverty line, one of the highest in the country. While this is great news for many residents, the steady progress have removed South Carolina from being one of the states where residents are eligible for extended unemployment benefits, which will make it uncomfortable for those who have yet to get back to work.
Assurance Wireless is in South Carolina, helping those who still have a little more way to go. Customers of Assurance receive a free cell phone with 250 monthly minutes, every month. The minutes are refilled automatically and there is never a bill to pay.
