Lifeline Service & Plans
Can I get more than one Lifeline phone?
No, you may only sign up for and receive one account with FREE monthly service. The Federal Lifeline program only allows one free wireless or landline phone service plan per “household”. For instance, if you qualify for Lifeline assistance and receive your free phone service, but also want your significant other (that also lives with you) to apply, they will be denied. This is because you are both considered part of the same household.
Lifeline does, however, allow for groups that share an address due to circumstances. This means separate households that live at the same address ARE eligible, including residents of homeless shelters and nursing homes or residents with temporary addresses.
