To be eligible, you must be receiving Universal credit (All claimants), Pension credit (Guarantee Credit), Employment and Support Allowance, Jobseeker’s allowance, or Income support. Every 12 months, you will need to pass an eligibility check from EE. If you are still eligible, your Basics plan will continue for another 12 months. If not, EE will inform you that your tariff will be moved to an alternative SIM-only plan. Of course, the new plan will be more expensive, so if you don’t want to proceed, you can cancel your subscription or choose another EE tariff.
Since EE Basic is a SIM-only plan, meaning you don’t receive a phone with it, if you want to buy a new handset with a great discount, feel free to check out our best EE phone deals. If you are using the services of another carrier, you can see our best Vodafone phone deals, top O2 phone deals, best Virgin Media phone deals, and best Three phone deals.
