What is Lifeline?

Lifeline is a government program that subsidizes discounted phone service for low-income consumers, ensuring everyone can stay in touch. TruConnect is currently designated to provide free Lifeline-supported phone service in numerous states across the U.S., with more coming soon. The Lifeline program is only available to eligible consumers who can provide documentation for eligibility. Only one Lifeline service is allowed per household regardless of a type of phone. To be qualified for Lifeline, you must be currently enrolled in a qualified public assistance program (i.e. 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, etc.) or you can be qualified if your total annual household income is less than the qualified income guidelines.
