The Lifeline and Link Up programs help low-income households get telephone service, but it does not offer the service for free.
Lifeline provides discounts on one basic monthly phone service (landline or wireless). The discount can be up to $10.00 per month, depending on the state.
Link Up provides a one-time discount (up to a maximum of $30) off of the initial installation fee for a landline or the activation fee for wireless phone service.
