What is The Lifeline Program

The Lifeline program is a US government connectivity subsidy that provides discounts on cell phone plans. To qualify, your annual household income must be at or below 135% of the Federal Poverty guidelines. You’ll need to provide documents proving your income like pay stubs, tax returns, or a statement of benefits. If cost is keeping you from connecting, the Lifeline program can help.

Check if you qualify and apply with an approved carrier to get your family members connected. Staying connected has never been more important, and Lifeline is helping to boost mobile accessibility around the US to make communication available regardless of your income.

Lifeline Application

Once you’ve confirmed your eligibility, you can apply in a couple different ways:

  1. Apply online at EASY Wireless. This is typically the fastest method to get your free phone. You’ll need information like your full name, address, birthdate, and the program you participate in.

  2. Apply in person at certain locations. EASY Wireless retailers and Lifeline service centers allow you to apply and receive benefits on-site. Check here to find locations near you.
