Low-income individuals may be eligible for a reduction on their residential telephone bill with Lifeline. Lifeline service provides discounts that range from $11.19* - $20.03* monthly (discount subject to change).
Lifeline is a non-transferable government assistance program that provides a discount on the cost of monthly telephone service.

In California, a second discounted line for use with a TTY is allowed for subscribers who are certified disabled.
Lifeline is a part of the Federal Universal Service Fund program. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) established the program and created the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) to administer it. The goal of the Universal Service program is to assist in making essential telecommunications services affordable to most customers.
In addition to Basic Lifeline, individuals living on federally recognized Tribal Lands whose household meets income based requirements or those that participate in one of the following federal assistance programs may also qualify for additional monthly discounts through Enhanced Lifeline or up to $100.00 toward installation fees through the Tribal Link-Up program: Bureau of Indian Affairs General Assistance, Tribally Administered Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, Head Start (income based only), or Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations.
