Lifeline is a federal benefit that makes monthly telecommunications services more affordable for eligible households. Your household may receive Lifeline on one wireless OR one home telephone OR one internet connection, but not more than one. Your household may not receive the Lifeline benefit from more than one Telecommunications Company. For the purpose of Lifeline, a household is an individual or any group of individuals who live together at the same address and share income or expenses. You may not transfer your Lifeline discount to another person, even if he or she is eligible. You may lose your Lifeline benefit and may be prosecuted by the United States government if you violate the one-per- household rule or otherwise make false statements to receive Lifeline.
