How to Qualify for Assurance Wireless, a Lifeline Program, & SNAP

 Since 1985, the Lifeline program has provided a discount on phone service for qualifying low-income consumers to ensure that all Americans have the opportunities and security that phone service brings, including being able to connect to jobs, family and emergency services. In 2005, Lifeline discounts were made available to qualifying low-income consumers on pre-paid wireless service plans in addition to traditional landline service. Lifeline is part of the Universal Service Fund.

SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) provides assistance with the cost of groceries for eligible individuals.
