What Is Lifeline Program
Qualified households receive discounted home phone or cell phone under California Lifeline Program. It is a state run program for low income household. It helps customers to reduce their phone bills. Only one discounted phone per household is allowed under the program. Each qualified household is eligible for either discounted home phone or cell phone. It is a non-transferable benefit and the customer may not transfer his or her benefit to any other individual. Eligible customers should renew their eligibility once every year to continue their discounts; if not they will be disconnected from the program.
