Only eligible individuals may enroll in the Lifeline program. Lifeline service is limited to only one wireless or landline Lifeline benefit per household. You also cannot receive Lifeline benefits from multiple service providers.
According to the Lifeline program, a household is defined as "any individual or group of individuals who live together at the same address and share income and expenses." You may be eligible if you live at an address that consists of multiple households, such as a nursing home or homeless shelter. You may also be eligible if your address is temporary.
