Do I Qualify?

If You Use SNAP, Medicaid, or Other Programs

Federal Assistance Programs

You can get Lifeline if you (or someone in your household) participates in one of these federal assistance programs:

  • Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as Food Stamps
  • Medicaid
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
  • Federal Public Housing Assistance (FPHA)
  • Veterans Pension and Survivors Benefit
  • Tribal Programs (and live on federally-recognized Tribal lands)

Show a card, letter, or official document, as proof that you participate in one of these programs when you apply for Lifeline.

Qualify Through Your Child or Dependent

You can sign up for Lifeline if your child or dependent participates in any of the programs listed above.

Limit: One per Household

You are only allowed to get one Lifeline discount (phone or internet, but not both) per household, not per person.

Based on Your Income

You can get Lifeline if your income is 200% or less than the federal poverty guidelines. The guideline is based on your household size and state.

Show proof of income, like three consecutive pay stubs or a tax return, when you apply for Lifeline.
