Wireless Lifeline:
Lifeline is a government-supported program that provides free or reduced mobile phone service to qualified low-income customers. If you qualify for the Lifeline Program, you will receive a free cellular phone from Horizon Cellular, a limited amount of free wireless service or reduced cost wireless service, and unlimited access to customer service and 911. For more call 1-866-966-1968 
To qualify for the Lifeline program:

Lifeline provides discounts on monthly telephone service (wireline or wireless) for eligible consumers. These discounts average $9.25 per month, and may be more depending on the state. Federal rules prohibit eligible low-income consumers from receiving more than ONE Lifeline service at the same time. That is, eligible low-income consumers may receive a Lifeline discount on either a wireline or a wireless service, but may not receive a Lifeline discount on both services at the same time. Additionally, only ONE Lifeline service may be obtained per household. ‘‘Household’’ is defined as any individual or group of individuals who live together at the same address as one economic unit. An ‘‘economic unit’’ is defined as ‘‘all adult individuals contributing to and sharing in the income and expenses of a household.’’ Lifeline support is available to eligible low-income consumers living in group living facilities. Lifeline applicants may demonstrate when initially enrolling in the program that any other Lifeline recipients residing at their residential address are part of a separate household.

The Lifeline program is available to eligible low-income consumers in every state, territory, commonwealth, and on Tribal lands. You must be eligible to enroll. To participate in the program, consumers must either have an income that is at or below 135% of the federal Poverty Guidelines or participate in one of the following assistance programs:

  • Medicaid;
  • Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (Food Stamps or SNAP);
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI); Federal Public Housing Assistance (Section 8);
  • Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP);
  • Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF);
