Since 1985, the Lifeline program has provided a discount on phone service for qualifying

low-income consumers to ensure that all Americans have the opportunities and security that

phone service brings, including being able to connect to jobs, family and emergency services.

In 2005, Lifelinediscounts were made available to qualifying low-income consumers

on pre-paid wireless service plansin addition to traditional landline service.

Lifeline is part of the Universal Service Fund.

The Lifeline program is available to eligible low-income consumers in every state,

territory and commonwealth. Consumers with proper proof of eligibility may be qualified to enroll.


To participate in the program, consumers must either have an income

that is at or below 135% of the federal Poverty Guidelines or participate

in one of the following assistance programs:


  • Medicaid
  • Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) Food Stamps
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
  • Federal Public Housing Assistance (Section 8)
  • Veterans and Survivors Pension Benefit
Some states have additional eligibility under the following Tribal programs:
  • Bureau of Indian Affairs General Assistance (BIA)
  • Tribally Administered Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (Tribal TANF)
  • Tribal Head Start (only those households meeting its income qualifying standard)
  • Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR)

Federal rules prohibit eligible low-income consumers from receiving more than one

Lifeline discount per household. An eligible consumer may receive a discount on either

a wireline or wireless service, but not both. A consumer whose household currently

is receiving more than one Lifeline service must select a single Lifeline provider

and contact the other provider to de-enroll from their program. Consumers violating

this rule may also be subject to criminal and/or civil penalties.

The Lifeline program is administered by the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC).

USAC is responsible for data collection and maintenance, support calculation,

and disbursement for the low-income program.
