Telephone service discounts for lower-income consumers

old school rotary phoneIn this economy, paying bills can be a challenge. Lifeline is a federal program that helps cover one of the most important bills: telephone service. The Lifeline program provides a discount on phone service for qualifying low-income consumers to ensure that all Americans can connect to jobs, family and emergency services.

Eligible households can receive up to $9.25 per month in Lifeline discounts. Most telephone companies lower the phone bill each month. Some companies provide free wireless minutes each month. To qualify, consumers must be at or below 135% of the federal poverty level, OR participate in assistance programs like:

  •    Medicaid;
  •    Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (Food Stamps or SNAP);
  •    Supplemental Security Income (SSI);
  •    Federal Public House Assistance (Section 8);
  •    Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP);
  •    Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF);
  •    National School Lunch Program’s Free Lunch Program;

For 2012, 135% of the federal poverty level is:

  • $15,079.50 per year for a 1-person household
  • $20,425.50 per year for a 2-person household
  • $31,117.50 per year for a 4-person household
