How Can I Qualify for a Free Phone Through the Government Assisted Lifeline Program?

The Lifeline cell phone program is a government assisted program that provides a free phone and free minutes every month to low income families or individuals. You can qualify for a free phone if you meet income requirements or if you receive government benefits from one of several programs.

  1. Temporary Assistance to needy Families (TANF)
  2. Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
  3. Food Stamps
  4. Medicaid
