Lifeline and Linkup America Programs

Lifeline is a non-transferable government assistance program that makes monthly telephone service more affordable for eligible consumers. Your household may receive Lifeline on one mobile (wireless) OR one landline (home) telephone, but not both. For the purpose of Lifeline, a household is an individual or any group of individuals who live together at the the same address and share income or expenses. Contact your Triangle Customer Service Representative for more information regarding these programs.
