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.
