The Lifeline Program is a government assistance program that lowers the cost of telephone and bundled broadband services meeting minimum standards for eligible low-income consumers by $9.25 per month. Customers can qualify for one service per household if their income is at or below 135% of the federal poverty guidelines or by participation in one of the following programs:
- Federal Public Housing Assistance (Section 8)
- Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), f/k/a Food Stamps
- Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
- Veteran’s Pension and Survivor Benefit
Applicants will be required to provide proof of eligibility and re-certify their eligibility annually. By applying for and receiving the Lifeline Discount, subscribers agree to remain with their service provider for 60 days for voice services and 12 months for broadband services.
Toll blocking service prevents the placement of all long distance calls for which a subscriber would be charged. Toll blocking is available to eligible consumers at no cost.
