Do I need to apply for Lifeline to enroll in ACP?
While Lifeline enrollment is not required to apply for ACP benefits, there are benefits to enrolling in both programs at the same time.
Since both Lifeline and ACP share a lot of the same eligibility criteria, you can save time by enrolling together. Additionally, wireless plans that combine both Lifeline and ACP benefits include more free monthly talk, text, and data.*
Assist Wireless even provides a free smartphone* to new or returning customers who enroll in a combined Lifeline + ACP plan in most states.
