Lifeline benefits are federal benefits and Applicants that make false statements in order to obtain the Lifeline
benefit can be punished by fine or imprisonment, de-enrollment or can be barred from the program. Only one Lifeline
service is available per household. A household is defined, for purposes of the Lifeline program, as any individual or group of
individuals who live together at the same address and share income and expenses. A household may not receive
multiple Lifeline benefits from multiple providers. A violation of the one-per-household requirement constitutes
a violation of the Federal Communication Commissions rules and will result in de-enrollment from the program,
and could result in criminal prosecution by the United States government. The Lifeline benefit may be applied to
either one landline or one wireless number, but cannot be applied to both. Note that not all Lifeline services
are currently marketed under the name Lifeline.
I certify under penalty of perjury that I either participate in the indicated qualifying federal program or I
meet the income qualification to establish my eligibility for Lifeline. If required to do so, I have provided
accurate documentation of my eligibility. I certify I am head of the household, I am not listed as a dependent
on another person's tax return (unless over the age of 60) and the address listed is my primary residence. I
confirm local voice service discounts under the low income programs are limited to one per household and that my
household is receiving no more than one Lifeline supported service. If I am participating in another Lifeline
program at the time I apply for Assist Wireless Lifeline service, I agree to cancel that Lifeline service with
any other provider. I certify that I will only receive one Lifeline connection, will not have simultaneous or
multiple Lifeline discounts with another provider. I acknowledge that I may be required to re-certify my
continued eligibility for Lifeline at any time, and that failure to do so will result in the termination of the
Lifeline benefits. I understand that I must inform Assist Wireless within 30 days if I (1) no longer participate
in a federal qualifying program or programs or my annual household income exceeds 135% of the Federal Poverty
Guidelines; (2) I am receiving more than one Lifeline supported service per household; or (3) I, for any other
reason, no longer satisfy the criteria for receiving Lifeline support. I attest under penalty of perjury that I
understand this notification requirement, and that I may be subject to penalties if I fail to follow this rule.
I understand that Lifeline service is a non-transferable benefit, and that I may not transfer my service to any
other individual, including another eligible low-income consumer. I acknowledge and consent to the use of my
name, telephone number, and address to be given to the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) (the
administrator of the program) and/or its agents for the purpose of verifying that I 'm not receiving more than
one Lifeline benefit. I understand that refusal to grant this permission will mean I am not eligible for
Lifeline service. I also authorize Assist Wireless to access any records required to verify my statements herein
and to confirm my continued eligibility for Lifeline assistance. I understand that if I move, I must provide a
new address to Assist Wireless within 30 days of my move. I understand that if I provided a Temporary Address, I
must verify with Assist Wireless every 90 days that I am using the same address. I understand that if I fail to
do so, I will lose my Lifeline discount. By my signature, I certify under penalty of perjury that I have read
and understood this form and that I attest that the information contained in this application that I have
provided is true and correct to the best of my knowledge and that I acknowledge that providing false or
fraudulent information to receive Lifeline benefits is punishable by law.

Lifeline is a government program that provides a monthly discount on home or mobile telephone services. Only ONE Lifeline discount is allowed per household. Members of a household are not permitted to receive Lifeline service from multiple telephone companies. Your household is everyone who lives together at your address as one economic unit (including children and people who are not related to you). The adults you live with are part of your economic unit if they contribute to and share in the income and expenses of the household. An adult is any person 18 years of age or older, or an emancipated minor (a person under age 18 who is legally considered to be an adult). Household expenses include food, health care expenses (such as medical bills) and the cost of renting or paying a mortgage on your place of residence (a house or apartment, for example) and utilities (including water, heat and electricity). Income includes salary, public assistance benefits, social security payments, pensions, unemployment compensation, veteran's benefits, inheritances, alimony, child support payments, worker's compensation benefits, gifts, and lottery winnings. Spouses and domestic partners are considered to be part of the same household. Children under the age of 18 living with their parents or guardians are considered to be part of the same household as their parents or guardians. If an adult has no income, or minimal income, and lives with someone who provides financial support to that adult, both people are considered part of the same household.
Does your spouse or domestic partner currently receive Lifeline-discounted phone service? (Check No if you do not have a spouse or partner)
Other than a spouse or partner, do other adults (people over the age of 18 or emancipated minors) live with you at your address?
Do you share living expenses (bills, food, etc.) and share income (either your income, the other person's income or both incomes together) with at least one of the adults listed above? (Check No if you selected None from above)
Please complete if benefits selected are in a name other than applicant - (i.e. Free Lunch Program)
