Some of the most common Lifeline FAQs are about the ways a person can get free service for themselves and their loved ones. Good news is there are many ways people can qualify and apply. You may qualify for Assist Wireless if you participate in Medicaid, Food Stamps/SNAP, Social Security Income (SSI), or other government programs. You may also qualify if your total household income meets USAC’s Federal Poverty Guidelines. You may be asked to provide proof of government program participation. If you are applying based on income eligibility, you will need to provide a copy of last year’s state or federal income tax return or 3 consecutive months within the past 12 months of your pay stubs, Social Security benefits statement, Veterans Administration benefits statement, Retirement/Pension benefits statement, divorce decree or child support document, or Unemployment/Workers Compensation benefits statement. Please remember to send copies of these documents (not originals) since they will NOT be returned.
