Lifeline Assistance Program

Lifeline is a federal program providing 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.

The Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) Universal Service Fund provides a discount of $9.25 on each monthly telephone bill. Only one discount is allowed per household.
