Federal Lifeline Assistance:
Lifeline is a government benefit program supported by the federal Universal Service Fund.
Enrollment is available to individuals who qualify based on federal or state-specific eligibility criteria. You may qualify if you are on certain public assistance programs, like Medicaid or Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). You can also qualify based on your household income.
Proof of Eligibility
You must provide proof of program participation or proof of income.
One Account per Household
The Lifeline Assistance program is available for only one wireless or wireline account per household. Separate households that live at the same address are eligible, including residents of homeless shelters and nursing homes. Residents with temporary addresses are also eligible.
