Lifeline Changes effective December 2, 2016:
You can now apply your monthly Lifeline discount to internet service. This offering is limited to areas where UUI provides 6M/2M with 100,000MB data or 8M/4M with 325,000MB data. The monthly Lifeline discount is $34.25. Eligible consumers must successfully complete the Lifeline application and requirements, participate in a qualifying assistance program or meet income eligibility limits, provide required documentation, and certify the accuracy of the information being provided. You can continue to apply your monthly Lifeline discount to your home phone, but you can only receive a discount on ONE option – phone or internet. If you decide to apply your monthly Lifeline discount to internet service, you must remain with the company that provides your service for at least 12 months. After that, you are free to switch to a different company. If you apply your monthly Lifeline discount to your home phone service, you need to stay with your company for at least 2 months. Further restrictions and requirements may apply. If you have any questions or if you would like further information, please contact us.
