Gov't Subsidized Cell Phone Service
Do you need a cell phone but can't afford it? Is your household considered low-income? If so, you may qualify
for Lifeline benefits from the government. Those who are already receiving food stamps or Medicaid qualify to receive
the Lifeline phone service benefit. This benefit provides a subsidy for your cell phone service. There are cell phone
service providers that can provide you with service for no cost
or low cost to you! In many cases, you will get a cell phone handset
for free - even a smartphone or Iphone.
If you are qualified for Lifeline government assistance (often referred to as the Obama phone), you could receive mobile phone service without ever receiving a bill.
We are currently connecting customers with this service in Arkansas, Arizona, Colorado, California, Georgia, Iowa, Indiana, Illinois, Kansas, Louisiana, Maryland, Missouri, Minnesota, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, Washington, Texas, Wisconsin, and West Virginia.
If you are already getting benefits from a government assistance program like Section 8 housing, Food Stamps (SNAP or Supplemental Nutritional Assist Program), Section 8 Housing, Medicaid, SSI, etc., you are probably eligible for our Lifeline service.

Lifeline qualifications vary by state. In most areas, you are eligible for Lifeline home phone service if you currently participate in a government program. You may also be qualified if the total income of your household is at a certain level as designated by your state.
Lifeline is a Federal program that provides a subsidy to low income families in order to give them an opportunity to afford phone services, either wireless or wire-line, and is funded by the Universal Service Fund (USF). The program allows for just one subsidy per household. The discount is $9.25 for plans meeting the Minimum Data Service Standard but can be more in some states. In addition, there are more benefits available for those living on Federally recognized Tribal land. For more information see our qualifications page or visit the USAC website.
