Lifeline is a government assistance program that helps low-income consumers with their telecommunication needs by providing reduced monthly subscription charges. The service is non-transferable. Only one Lifeline discount is allowed per household, consisting of either wireline or wireless service. (NOTE: A household is defined as any individual or group of individuals who live together at the same address and share income and expenses.)
To qualify for this program, a member of the household must be a current recipient of any one of the following low-income assistance programs:
- Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
- Federal Public Housing Assistance (FPHA)
- Veterans Pension and Survivors Pension Benefit
Your household income is at or below 135% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines.
You have paid or made payment arrangements for any outstanding balance for local and miscellaneous telephone services provided to you or any member of your household.
If you are eligible for this service, please contact Logan Telephone Cooperative for enrollment details. You must be able to provide proof of income or participation in a qualifying program. Consumers who willfully make false statements in order to obtain program benefits can be punished with a fine or imprisonment or barred from the program.
The consumer is responsible for any other charges, including the required membership fee and deposit. The Lifeline program provides a credit to the local service charge on the qualifying consumer’s monthly telephone bill. This credit will be given every month after proof of eligibility has been received and verified by LTC. The Cooperative reserves the right to periodically audit its records, in conjunction with the consumer and the appropriate state agencies, to verify continued eligibility for the Lifeline program.
Applications for Lifeline service are subject to verification with the state agency responsible for administration of the qualifying program. Lifeline application forms are available at the LTC business office.
If you know someone who is eligible for this service, please pass this information along to them. Call 270-542-4121 or 270-934-4121 with any questions or email firstname.lastname@example.org. More information regarding Lifeline can be obtained at http://www.lifelinesupport.org.
