Pennsylvania Now in the National Verifier

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.

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.
