Low income households in Pennsylvania can get a low-cost cellular plan.
As of March 5, 2019, Pennsylvania Lifeline applicants must first qualify in the National Eligibility Verifier. This means that before you can apply for Lifeline subsidized phone service, you MUST prove your eligibility in the National Verifier Consumer Portal. To do this, you need to visit the National Verifier consumer portal and enter your information into the National Verifier database which will confirm your eligibility. Once you complete the form in the consumer portal, you may return here to sign up (Step 2 below) for this free cell phone service.
If you have not already checked your eligibility with the National Eligibility Verifier, you should do that first
here. If you are in the PA state database, you
could find out that you qualify immediately. If the National Verifier cannot prove your eligibility through its electronic sources, you will
need to provide more documents by uploading them to the consumer portal. Your approved qualification in the National Verifier is good for 90
days. During that time, you can apply for Lifeline supported service with us. Our online enrollment process will see that you've
been qualified in the National Verifier and will be able to process your application for FREE cell phone service.
For more information about the National Eligibility Verifier, visit the USAC Website here.
To qualify, you just need to be receiving some form of government assistance like Medicaid, food stamps, SSI, Federal Public Housing, Veterans Pension, etc. The National Verifier will confirm that you are receiving a qualifying benefit.
Qualifying customers in Pennsylvania will get 350 anytime minutes per month, unlimited text messaging and now 4.5GB of DATA
with the Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) subsidy. Each month, 350 minutes
will automatically be added and any unused minutes will expire. If you need more minutes, you can purchase them at
our reasonable rates. For any added minutes, you pay-as-you-go so there is no bill with any suprises.
With those minutes you can receive or place local and long distance calls, send or receive text messages, and check your voicemail.
You won't receive a bill because the service costs nothing! There is no credit check, no deposit, and no contract. You can cancel at any time.
This plan is made possible by the Federal Lifeline program. Lifeline is intended to make telecommunications
affordable to low income households. Reimbursement for Lifeline comes from the Universal Service Fund ((USF). The average
benefit is $9.25 but can be more or less in some cases. If you are enrolled in a Federal or State assistance program or, your
household income is at or below 135% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines, you are eligible to receive this subsidy.
