Regulations established by the Federal Communications Commission for the federal Lifeline program prohibit any household from receiving more than one Lifeline discount and Lifeline customers will be asked to verify their continued eligibility for the program on a regular basis.

The Lifeline program is a government assistance program, the service is non- transferable, only eligible consumers may enroll in the program, and the program is limited to one discount per household. Please review the application carefully to ensure compliance with federal regulations.
