U.S. residents who receive government aid and pass the income test are eligible for the Life Wireless cell service. Government aid can be in the form of state or federal aid programs. The service is limited to one cellphone per household.
Residents of the United States living at or below 135 percent of the federal poverty level qualify for Life Wireless. They are also eligible if they receive government assistance through Food Stamps, Medicaid, SSI, FPHA and the National Free School Lunch Program. State programs also form part of the eligible programs and vary in each state. All subscribers must have a valid street address.
Residents of federally recognized tribal lands who benefit from the Food Distribution on Indian Reservations, Bureau of Indian Affairs General Assistance and Tribally Administered TANF programs also qualify for the service.
