Assist Wireless Lifeline Recertification
Effective July 2017, Lifeline Recertification will occur on a rolling basis in monthly batches based on customer’s anniversary date. This change by the Lifeline administrator, USAC simplifies the process for customers to renew their Lifeline service – Assist Wireless Lifeline Recertification can be completed by phone, online or by mail.
Recertifying is as Easy as 1-2-3!
After you receive your initial Lifeline recertification notice by phone call or text message, you will receive a blue envelope in the mail from USAC (pictured below). The letter informs you that it is time to renew your Lifeline benefit and provides the following three methods for decertifying. Assist Wireless will also send you a reminder about your Lifeline Recertification.
NOTE: YOU MUST RECERTIFY WITHIN 60 DAYS OF INITIAL NOTIFICATION, OR YOUR SERVICE WILL BE TERMINATED
Additional Lifeline Recertification Information:
NOTE: As your service provider, we will NOT know when your recertification is received by the Lifeline administrator. You should expect to continue to receive messaging from us reminding you to recertify until the due date for your recertification period. If you have already recertified, you may disregard these messages.
