What is the Federal Lifeline Assistance Program?

Recognizing the importance of having access to a phone and concerned that low-income households may not be able to afford phone service on their own, the federal government created the Lifeline Assistance program in 1985. Consumers who qualify based on federal or state-specific eligibility criteria can obtain free phone service through the Lifeline Assistance program.

Today Lifeline is still a federal program. Qualifying individuals are eligible to receive one Lifeline discount per household. Life Wireless provides free phone service as well as free government phones by state, with qualifying enrollment through the Lifeline phone program. Eligible users can apply for free cell phones, and also get additional free data with approval from the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP). Life Wireless provides access to reliable 5G (where available) 4G LTE coverage nationwide.

Under the Lifeline program, qualified customers can receive a discount on their monthly wireless service.

Promotional service offer supported by Lifeline. Only eligible consumers may enroll. Eligibility is based on income or participation in certain government benefit programs and is determined by the National Verifier (documentation may be required). Lifeline benefit is non-transferable and is limited to one monthly service discount on either wireless or wireline service. For Lifeline eligibility criteria and applicable terms and conditions, visit www.lifewireless.com/tac or call us at 1-888-543-3620. Life Wireless is a service of Telrite.

Lifeline applicants may apply for Lifeline directly through the Life Wireless site

What is the Federal Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP)?

The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), replaces the Emergency Broadband Benefit Program (EBB). ACP is an FCC benefit program that helps low-income households pay for broadband service and internet connected devices.

You can enroll in both programs at the same time. With ACP you are receiving MORE data than you will if you only enroll in the Lifeline program.

If your household is eligible for ACP, you will receive the following monthly:

  • FREE Unlimited Talk & Text
  • FREE Unlimited Data
  • FREE Smartphone (or bring your own)

Only one monthly service discount and one device discount is allowed per household. To receive the connected device discount, consumers need to enroll in the ACP with a participating provider that offers connected devices, like Life Wireless.

Promotional service offer supported by the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) operated by the FCC. Only eligible consumers may enroll. Eligibility is based on income less than or equal to 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines or participation in Lifeline, Medicaid, SNAP, WIC, free or reduced-price school lunch/breakfast, or Pell Grant and is determined by the National Verifier (documentation may be required). The ACP benefit is non-transferable and is limited to one monthly service discount and benefit transfer per household. For ACP details and applicable terms and conditions, visit www.lifewireless.com/ACP/tac or call us at 1-888-543-3620. If the FCC announces the end the ACP, we end our ACP service offers, or if your household is no longer eligible, we will notify you and you will revert to receiving only the standard FREE Lifeline plan if you are eligible or you may choose service subject to our regular rates, terms and conditions.
