Lifeline Assistance

What is Lifeline Assistance?

  • Lifeline Assistance is a government assistance program that provides a monthly credit to the local telephone service bill of residential customers.  Lifeline Assistance is designed to make basic home telephone service even more affordable for qualified customers. 
  • If you qualify for Lifeline Assistance, Union Springs Telephone Company will discount your local telephone charge by $12.75 each month.

How Do I Qualify for Lifeline Assistance?

Lifeline Assistance is available to residential telephone customers who have an annual household income at or below 135% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines for a household of its size OR who participate in any of the following low-income assistance programs:

  • Medicaid
  • Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP or Food Stamps)
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
  • Section 8 Federal Public Housing Assistance (FPHA)
  • Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP)
  • Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)
  • National School Lunch Program’s Free Lunch Program (NSLP)

You may also be eligible for Lifeline Assistance even if you do not personally participate in one of these programs, as long as an individual who lives in your household, and for whom you are financially responsible, participates in at least one of these programs.
