Lifeline Assistance Program


Mobile Phone

Lifeline Assistance Program Overview

Recognizing the important benefits associated with phone access 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 discounted or free phone service through the Lifeline Assistance program.

We work with Assurance Wireless provide eligible consumers with free monthly data, unlimited texting, free monthly minutes plus a free Smartphone.
