Are you enrolled in the California LifeLine Program?

If you're enrolled in the California LifeLine Program (California LifeLine), your eligible household is benefitting from a state program that provides discounted home phone and cell phone services so you can reduce the cost of your phone bill.

At present, the California LifeLine Program helps 1.2 million low income families and low income households so they can use their money toward things more important than cell phone service and internet services.

It's a great program and, if your Lifeline provider is Life Wireless, it can be even better!

"What if I live in California but haven't applied for benefits yet?"

We're glad you asked! If you meet certain eligibility requirements, you'll certainly qualify!

Each state has different lifeline eligibility requirements for the lifeline discount such as receiving government assistance or having a household income that is at or below the federal poverty level for the state in which you reside.

The standard eligibility programs that may be used as proof of subsidy include: Food Stamps / Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Section 8 Federal Public Housing Assistance (FPHA), Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Medicaid, The Veterans Pension or Survivors Pension, and income at or below 135% of Federal Poverty Guidelines.

Do you participate in any of the federal assistance programs listed here?

If so, you meet the eligibility requirements to receive Life Wireless assistance!

  • Food Stamps or Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)

  • Medicaid (not Medicare)

  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI)

  • Section 8 Federal Public Housing Assistance (FPHA)

  • Veteran's Pension or Survivor's Pension Benefit

Additionally, if you reside on any federally recognized Tribal land, you could qualify to become a Lifeline subscriber under the following programs:

  • Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations

  • Bureau of Indian Affairs General Assistance

  • Tribally Administered Temporary Assistance (TANF)

  • Head Start (if you meet the income-qualifying standards)

Ready to switch from your current Lifeline provider to Life Wireless?

If you have been receiving Lifeline benefits with another Lifeline provider for more than 60 days, simply fill out a Life Wireless application. If your application is approved, your lifeline benefit will be switched automatically to Life Wireless.

If you have had service with another Lifeline provider for less than 60 days, you'll need to de-enroll from your current carrier before applying for service with Life Wireless since you may only receive one Lifeline discount per household.

Make the switch to more. More data. More hotspot. More great connection on America's most dependable 5G network. Make the switch to Life Wireless. Apply today!
