Access to Lifeline Phones

In uncertain times, such as our current COVID-19 crisis, it may be difficult for many to maintain contact with your family or loved ones.  If you are seeking access to a lifeline cell phone, and participate in public programs such as Medicaid, Food Stamps/SNAP, or SSI, you may be eligible for a subsidized cell phone through the Lifeline program. You may need to provide proof of income or proof of program participation. The Lifeline Assistance program is available for only one wireless or wireline account per household.
