    when I am free, I am/will be

    When I am free, I am able to help you.

    When I am free, I will be able to help you.

    Just want to clarify, am I right to say both is the same and correct?

    They are both correct. They don't mean exactly the same though.
    The first one means that, in general, whenever I am free I can help you.
    The second has a future meaning: "when I am free, after I have finished what I am doing now, I will be able to help you.
