Many Americans Qualify for FREE Lifeline Wireless Service!

Telecommunications service keeps people connected to vital parts of their lives. For some people, though, the costs of service can be too high.

Since 1985, the Lifeline program has provided a discount on phone service for qualifying low-income consumers to ensure that all Americans have the opportunities and security that phone service brings, including being able to connect to jobs, family, friends, important appointments, and emergency services. In 2005, Lifeline discounts were made available to qualifying low-income consumers on pre-paid wireless service plans in addition to traditional landline service.

The Lifeline program is available to eligible low-income consumers in every state, territory, commonwealth, and on Tribal lands. To participate in the program, consumers must either have an income that is at or below 135% of the Federal Poverty Guideline or participate in a qualifying assistance program.

Federal rules prohibit eligible low-income consumers from receiving more than one Lifeline discount per household. An eligible consumer may receive a discount on either a landline or wireless service, but not both. If you currently have Lifeline landline phone service and want wireless cellphone service, you must choose to switch your Lifeline benefit to the wireless service. Once you choose this option, you will not receive the Lifeline discount on your landline phone service any longer. You will now receive it on your wireless cellphone service instead.

A consumer whose household currently is receiving more than one Lifeline service must select a single Lifeline provider and contact the other provider to de-enroll from their program. Consumers violating this rule may be subject to criminal and/or civil penalties.

**To continue receiving the Lifeline benefit, consumers must maintain eligibility and use the service at least once every thirty days or service is canceled.
