Lifeline Cell Phone
Unlimited Talk, Unlimited Text
Low income households in Kentucky can get a free wireless plan.
Get Lifeline government assistance to help with your telecommunications needs. With lifeline, you can get free mobile phone
service and receive a free handset, and never receive a bill.
To qualify, you just need to be receiving some form of gov't assistance like Food Stamps, Veterans Pension, SSI, Federal Public Housing, etc. or have a total household income not exceeding 135% of the Federal Poverty Level.
Go to our Lifeline enrollment form to see a complete listing of qualifying programs for Kentucky.
All those who apply for Lifeline service must first be qualified in the
Lifeline National Eligibility Verifier.
The National Verifier is a system managed by the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC)
that determines eligibility for a Lifeline phone service applicant.
Every Lifeline applicant in Kentucky MUST first be qualified through the National Verifier before completing an application with a lifeline service provider. When you apply for Lifeline supported service with any carrier, the Lifeline National Verifier will be checked to confirm you are qualified for the Lifeline benefit. If you are not found in the National Verifier database, you will be presented with a message informing you to go to the National Verifier and qualify before you can proceed with your Lifeline supported Phone Service application.
When registering in the Lifeline National Verifier database, enter your name the same way it appears on your Identification
(state ID or Drivers License). Also, you will need to use the same address when registering in the National Verifier that you will provide
on your Lifeline Service application.
Entering your full name as it appears on your ID will insure that your application does not fail for identity issues. If your ID shows a full middle name, enter your full middle name. If your ID uses your middle initial, enter your middle initial on your Lifeline application.
Kentucky residents will receive a free modern mobile handset and
1000 anytime minutes per month, plus unlimited text messaging. Each
month your minutes will automatically be refreshed. If you need more minutes, you can purchase them at low, low rates either on-line or by
calling customer service.
Your lifeline government assisted service will allow you to receive and send text messages, get voice mail, and make local and long distance calls.
You won't receive a bill because the service is FREE! There is no credit check, no deposit, and no contract. You can cancel at any time.
The Lifeline program in Kentucky provides a discount on your monthly telecommunications bill - either landline or
wireless service. When you order service through us, we apply that discount toward your monthly cellular minutes
which allows us to give you 1000 anytime minutes each month, and unlimited texting.
You can apply for our service by clicking the order button above. However, if you currently receive lifeline benefits through another provider for either home phone or mobile phone, you are not qualified to receive an additional Lifeline discount through us. Only one Lifeline benefit is allowed per household. You can, however, choose to transfer your Lifeline benefit to us.
Just complete the on-line application form, providing your proof of participation in Food Stamps (SNAP),
Medicaid, or one of the other benefit programs you are enrolled in, and a picture of your drivers license or
state ID, and we'll send you your mobile handset on a gov't assisted phone plan right away
(Activation charge may apply).
You'll receive your phone in about 7 business days. Would you prefer a touch-screen phone? We have low-cost handsets available for purchase or, use your current phone!
