What Is Lifeline?

Lifeline is a government program designed to increase the availability of telephone services to low-income subscribers by providing a credit for monthly telephone service to eligible consumers. NewPhone Wireless provides free cellular service, a free NewPhone Wireless cellphone AND no contract or bills, EVERY MONTH!


The Lifeline program is available to eligible consumers in all states. In general, to qualify, subscribers must demonstrate that their household’s income is at or below 135% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines or participate in one of the following:
  • Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP/Food Stamps)
  • Section 8 Federal Public Housing Assistance (FPHA)

  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
  • Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)
  • Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP)
  • National School Lunch Program’s Free Lunch Program
  • Eligibility Programs for Residents of Federally-Recognized Tribal Lands: Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR), Bureau of Indian Affairs General Assistance (BIA), Tribally Administered Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TATNF), Head Start (meeting income qualifying standards)
Individuals in all states are able to enroll in the Lifeline program by demonstrating that they are eligible. Eligibility may be confirmed through a data base. Where a data base is not available, subscribers must provide proof of eligibility by demonstrating that they meet the income eligibility qualifications or participate in a qualifying program listed above.
Newphone Wireless Lifeline service is only offered to qualifying Louisiana residents.
Only one (1) Lifeline service per household is allowed. “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 discounts. You may apply your Lifeline discount to either one landline or one wireless number, but you cannot have the discount on both and you cannot receive Lifeline benefits from multiple providers.
