What is it?
The Verizon LifeLine Program offers discounts on local telephone service to low-income families. LifeLine provides discounts on local telephone calls only -- long distance is not discounted.
What do I get?
With this program you may pay only $1.00 a month for your basic phone service, with an additional charge for each outgoing call you make. You may also have the option to pay $2.00 per month for your basic service and then pay a set monthly charge to make unlimited calls within your local calling area. You may also get a discount on the installation fee, paying as little as $5.00.
How long do you get it?
You can get LifeLine as long as you continue to qualify.
