Life Line Services
Lifeline - Link Up Services
Verizon's Communications Lifeline/Link Up America program makes telephone service more affordable for qualified applicants. The Communications Lifeline provides qualified low-income individuals with a credit towards their monthly telephone bill. The Link Up America component of the program provides eligible individuals with a discount on telephone connection charges with the remaining amount billed in 12 monthly payments.
Safe Link Wireless
Safe Link Wireless is a program provided by TracFone Wireless, Inc. serving eligible households. To participate in the Safe Link Wireless service, certain eligibility requirements must be met, which are set by each State where the service is provided. These requirements are based on a person's participation in state, Federal support programs, or by meeting the Income Poverty Guidelines as defined by the U.S. Government. Safe Link Wireless service is limited to one person per household.
Recognizing the important benefits associated with phone access and concerned that low-income households may not be able to afford phone service on their own, the federal government created the Lifeline Assistance program in 1985. Consumers who qualify based on federal or state-specific eligibility criteria can obtain discounted or free phone service through the Lifeline Assistance program. Assurance Wireless provides eligible consumers with free monthly data, unlimited texting, free monthly minutes plus a free Smartphone
