Are there restrictions to the Lifeline Assistance Program?

Lifeline is only available on one wire line or one wireless telephone or broadband service per household. Customers may not transfer their Lifeline benefits to another person, even if the other person is eligible. Each year, Lifeline customers must certify that they are still eligible for the discount. Customers who willfully make false statements in order to obtain the benefits are subject to fine or imprisonment or may be barred from the program.
