Lifeline Discount Telephone Service Program (Lifeline)

The Lifeline Discount Telephone Service Program (Lifeline) is designed to make telephone service more affordable for income-eligible consumers. Consumers qualify for Lifeline by participating in certain federal or state assistance programs OR by having income at or below 135% of the federal poverty guidelines.

Information about the Lifeline program can be obtained from the Lifeline page on our AskPSC.com website. By working together, we can ensure that our most vulnerable residents are connected to vital emergency services, community resources and loved ones.

Sincerely,
John B. Auricchio
