To receive a free cell phone and 85 free minutes a month, you must:
- Participate in at least one of the following:
- Not already be enrolled in the Lifeline landline program. If someone else in your household is enrolled, they must cancel the
service before applying.
- Have a valid US Postal Address to ship their phone. P.O. Boxes are not accepted, but the address does not have to be your permanent home.
If your immigration status is undocumented and out-of-status you are still eligible for this program. You may be asked for a Social Security Number on the application, but you are not required to provide one in order to receive a grant.
