The Federal Lifeline Assistance Program is a government benefit program. It helps low-income individuals and households receive basic telecommunication services for free or at a discounted rate. Lifeline was created in the 1980s by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) under the Reagan Administration. The program originally provided low-income households the ability to receive discounted or free landline phone service.
Later, in 2005, Lifeline was updated to also include wireless phone services. The program makes sure low-income households are not cut off from basic wireless services, something that everyone now depends on to live happy, safe, and productive lives.
Q Link Wireless is the fastest-growing provider of the Lifeline program, and offers Lifeline service to eligible people living in the United States of America. Although eligibility varies by state, generally those who participate in a government benefit program like Medicaid, Food Stamps (SNAP) or SSI, or those who meet state specific income criteria may qualify.
